The Duleep trophy final recently concluded between the West Zone and East Zone. West Zone secured a win with a huge margin of 294 runs. But it is not only the result of the match that made the buzz. Rajasthan Royals opener Yashasvi Jaiswal was involved in a controversy in this match. The 20-year-old took the sledging part of the game way too far.
It reached a point where captain Ajinkya Rahane had to intervene to calm down the tempers. This wasn’t enough to keep the young Yashasvi Jaiswal quiet. He returned to his former tactics and had to leave the field as Rahane indicated to do so. Jaiswal’s coach Jwala Singh admitted that such things should not happen and don’t help the brand of cricket.
He further backed his pupil, saying that Jaiswal will learn with time the etiquette of the game. Jaiswal was awarded the man of the match in the final, for his stunning double century in the second innings. Jaiswal didn’t have the best of IPL seasons this year, and would be looking to prove his mettle in the coming tournament.
Jaiswals’ Coach Comments On The Incident
“I think these things should not happen. Sometimes when you are playing the game then you are full of emotions, and because he is young and not mature as the players are there. Sometimes when you are doing well and you pump for your team, some kind of thing happens because he is young and he needs to learn all those things how to handle (the situation).
Exactly, we don’t know what happened there because we are just watching TV and some clips. I don’t want to comment on anything, but I think with time and experience he (Jaiswal) will learn. When he played U19, I told him many things like there will be rough hours in between. From junior to senior level, it is always difficult because we are going through a lot of changes inside and outside the field.”
