New Delhi (EMS). Team India’s explosive opener is hopeful of victory in the T20 World Cup. This opener is Yashasvi Jaiswal who is surprising everyone by hitting fours and sixes from the very first ball. Team India has started the year on a strong note. First, they leveled the series by winning the Test match in South Africa in one and a half days and now defeated Afghanistan in the T20 series at home. The Indian team took an unassailable lead in the series against the Afghan team by winning two consecutive matches. This is the last series for India before the ICC T20 World Cup and the young opener had a blast in it. Yashasvi Jaiswal, a more dangerous batsman than Virender Sehwag, came as a guarantee of India’s victory.
Before the start of the second match, Indian team captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl against Afghanistan. The visiting team managed to reach the score of 172 runs in 20 overs on the strength of former captain Gulbadin Naib’s fifty. However, the target which looked big was reduced by the innings of India’s young explosive opener. He laid the foundation of the team’s victory by scoring runs at a strike rate of 200 and India won the match in just 15.4 overs.
It is noteworthy that young Yashasvi Jaiswal, who started the innings in Test for India, has also done well in T20. In the first match against Afghanistan, he scored a brilliant fifty while returning after sitting out due to injury. This opener scored 68 runs in just 34 balls, hitting 5 fours and 6 sixes. Batting stormily, he was leading the team to victory but lost his wicket while trying to hit a big shot. In the Indian Premier League, Yashasvi Jaiswal has started his innings by hitting a six on the first ball in many matches. In the second innings of the recent Test series against South Africa, this youngster opened his account with a four and against Afghanistan also he started the innings with a four. Yashasvi Jaiswal is hopeful of victory in the T20 World Cup.
