Yashasvi Jaiswal’s, the team’s opening batsman, made his Test debut unforgettable by smashing.
A century on Day 2 of the opening Test against the West Indies in Dominica on Thursday.
However, a video of him criticising a West Indian player while speaking with Virat Kohli is doing the rounds on social media.
Day 2 of the Dominica Test was won by India, who finished at 312/2. They began the day with 80/2 in response to the 150 run total set by the West Indies in the first inning.
Unbeaten at 40 overnight, Jaiswal went on to score his first Test century with a single from Alick Athanaze to fine leg. The captain, Rohit Sharma, added his tenth Test century at the other end.
Jaiswal was still on 143 at stumps while Rohit was removed shortly after reaching three figures. Jaiswal was heard cursing at Kohli towards the close of the day’s play while criticising a West Indian player.
Hate the b***c**d you are. “He should be moving away, but instead he came and stood in front, Jaiswal said.
According to the footage, Jaiswal was referring to the bowler who was moving at him.
“Exciting moment” – Yashasvi Jaiswal’s after scoring his first goal on his debut
Speaking after recording a century in his first Test, Yashasvi Jaiswal called the experience emotional.
On reaching his century, it was an emotional time. I was really proud of myself and grateful for everyone. This is just the beginning, and I want to succeed in the future. I want to thank everyone, the supporters, the team management, and Rohit Bhai. It’s hard to receive opportunities in the Indian squad, he said to Jio Cinema.
He stated that the pitch is on the slower side, which makes it difficult to bat on Dominica’s surface.
I wanted to keep playing for my nation, simply play ball-by-ball and enjoy my cricket despite the outfield’s sluggish pace, challenges, and moderate heat. I appreciate the challenge of playing Test cricket, as well as the circumstances that arise when the ball swings and seams. We’ve put a lot of effort into everything; I simply went out to express myself, Jaiswal continued.
On Day 3, India’s first innings will resume in an effort to increase its 162 point advantage and maybe claim the match.
