Jaiswal Diving Catch: There might not be many moments worth remembering in Yashasvi Jaiswal’s still fledgeling career in the IPL but the young Rajasthan Royals player is showing all the right signs that he can handle the pressure of being under the spotlight. The traction a player gets during the IPL across social media platforms can be immense; extremely negative and positive, depending on what the player did or is doing, and it can hurt any player mentally. And the fact that Jaiswal dropped Shubman Gill earlier, the 19-year-old must have skipped a heartbeat or two, you can say that.
However, Jaiswal, who made his IPL debut last season, didn’t let the dropped catch affect his approach in any way, instead, he came up with something special, you wonder if Gill’s catch was dropped by the similar player.
The effect of that Jaiswal diving catch was manifold. Not only Jaiswal redeemed himself but Jaydev Unadkat, back in RR Playing 11 for this game after getting the chop in the last match, must be feeling far better at this moment.
Unadkat bowled a bouncer and KKR batsman Sunil Narine could only edge it towards the leg side where a sprinting Jaiswal plucked a sensation diving catch. Watch the video:
This is a game with double the stakes considering both teams are rooted in the bottom two.
Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson won the toss and decided to field first and his bowlers made sure it was the right decision as KKR could manage only 133 runs in 20 overs. Chris Morris starred with the ball, picking up four wickets, while Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya and Mustafizur Rahman chipped with one wicket each.
For KKR, Rahul Tripathi topped the scoring charts with 36 runs off 26 balls.
