Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 98 runs against Kolkata.
New Delhi: Yashasvi Jaiswal The stars are on the rise. This 21-year-old Indian opener has created a stir in the IPL 2023 season. While playing for Rajasthan Royals, Yashasvi had already scored an excellent century in the tournament. Now Jaiswal has once again created a sensation with a record fifty in just 13 balls. Due to this strong performance of Jaiswal, there has been a demand to include him in Team India and speculation has also started with a tweet.
The young opener of Rajasthan Royals played an explosive inning of 98 runs in 47 balls against Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday, 11 May. At the beginning of this innings, Yashasvi scored 26 runs in the first over itself. After this, he scored the fastest half-century in IPL history in just 13 balls.

Will Jaiswal enter the team?
From this innings, there was a demand to take Yashasvi Jaiswal back to Team India. Former Indian batsman Suresh Raina also said that if he was a selector, he would have selected Yashasvi in the team. The selection cannot happen because of Raina’s speaking, but a tweet by BCCI Secretary Jai Shah has definitely given rise to this possibility.

After Yashasvi’s innings, Jai Shah praised the Rajasthan opener in a tweet. Jai Shah expressed hope in his tweet that Yashasvi will continue the same rhythm in future as well.

Many Indian young players have been performing well in IPL, but it is not rare that Jai Shah tweets about them. In such a situation, on this tweet of Shah, the fans started speculating that now Yashasvi’s entry in Team India is confirmed.
Another entry into the record books! What an extraordinary inning @PrithviShaw, Congratulations on hitting the second-highest Ranji Trophy score of all time. A talent with immense potential. Super proud! @BCCIdomestic pic.twitter.com/0MsturQSpD

Prithvi Shaw also got a chance
Now selection will happen or not, it will depend on the selection committee, but Jai Shah’s tweet is enough to speculate in itself. By the way, there is another possible reason behind these speculations. In January this year, when Prithvi Shaw scored a brilliant triple century in the Ranji Trophy, Shah tweeted for him as well. A few days later, Shaw got a chance in the T20 team.
