Against the Mumbai Indians, Yashasvi Jaiswal breaks numerous records with his first century

Yashasvi Jaiswal breaks numerous records with his first century against the Mumbai Indians. Jaiswal continued his streak of prolific scoring on Sunday against Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium in the 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The RR opener scored his first IPL century in game 42 of the lucrative league between Mumbai and Rajasthan, the defending champions. Sanju Samson and company at Wankhede amassed an enormous score against the hosts because of Jaiswal’s outstanding batting performance.

The MI bowling unit was punished by opener Jaiswal and superstar Jos Buttler after RR captain Samson won the toss and decided to bat at Wankhede. Within the first seven overs, Jaiswal and Buttler combined for a remarkable 72-run opening stand. While Buttler (18), Samson (14) and Devdutt Padikkal (2) struggled to get going in the high-scoring contest, Jaiswal launched an all-out assault on the MI bowlers.

Youngster Jaiswal led the 2008 winners’ batting onslaught in the 1000th IPL game and reached his century in the 18th over of the innings. Jaiswal reached his first IPL century in 2023 by hitting a boundary on the last ball of Riley Meredith’s over. After smashing his first-ever century in his highly anticipated IPL career, the hometown hero also wrote his name in history archives.

A record-breaking performance by the Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede

In the lucrative league, Jaiswal is the fourth-youngest batter to record a century. In the special list, the RR opener is just behind Manish Pandey (19 years, 253 days), Rishabh Pant (20 years, 218 days), and Devdutt Padikkal (20 years, 289 days). The Mumbai player also holds the record for the greatest IPL individual score by a player with no caps. In the wealthiest T20 competition in the world, Jaiswal is the fifth uncapped Indian batter to get a century. Jaiswal is now the second batter to record the greatest total in an IPL game where no other teammate scored more than 20 runs, after only the renowned New Zealand batter Brendon McCullum (158* in 2008). Jaiswal’s outstanding performance of 124 off 62 balls helped RR beat MI with their best IPL total.

The highest individual score by an Rajasthan Royals batter in the IPL was also recorded by Jaiswal. The Indian batsman has outdone Jos Buttler (124 vs SRH) in the T20 competition to accomplish the incredible achievement. The IPL 2023’s leading run scorer is the 21-year-old. In 9 games, the Orange Cap bearer has scored 428 runs.
