India’s young batter Yashasvi Jaiswal made a staggering debut in the first Test
against West Indies, slamming a brilliant century helping India to register a
massive win. Jaiswal, who received his maiden India call-up after delivering
superb performances in domestic cricket, shattered multiple records by smashing
an excellent century on his debut. Jaiswal showcased his batting exploits in the
international arena and earned plaudits from the entire cricket fraternity. But
another youngster Shubman Gill had a forgetful outing as he failed to score runs.
Talking about India's massive win over the West Indies in the 1st Test on his
YouTube channel, legendary Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh hailed Jaiswal for
his batting masterclass against the hosts. However, the spin legend also expressed
that the debutant will be disappointed to have missed out on slamming a double
ton on debut.
Yashasvi Jaiswal has had an impact straightaway in international cricket. I feel we
are going to see him play for India for a very long time. Harbhajan said there's no
shortage of talent and my advice to Jaiswal would be to work hard because you
have what it takes to conquer the world. Indian players have another opportunity
to score runs, pick wickets, and maintain their good form. This form will help
them in their upcoming games, Harbhajan added.
Jaiswal became the 17th Indian batter to score a century on debut. The 21-year-
old is also the fifth youngest batter to score a 150 on Test debut. The left-handed
opener was also named the Player of the Match for his batting heroics.
