It is sad that Yashashwin did not get the Player of the Match award: Statement of former star cricketer

Yashasvi Jaiswal : In the third Test match being played between India and England in Rajkot, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored the second double century of his Test career in the second innings of India. Jaiswal played an explosive inning of 214 runs. Jaiswal scored 214 runs in 236 balls which included 14 fours and 12 sixes. It was expected that Jaiswal would be awarded the Player of the Match award for his brilliant double century, but that did not happen, much to the surprise of the fans. Former Indian opener Sanjay Manjrekar has expressed regret over Yashwin not getting the Player of the Match award.

Sanjay Manjrekar praised Jaiswal

After India's victory in the third Test, Sanjay Manjrekar praised Jaiswal's extraordinary talent in the Test. Manjrekar said, “Yashaswi Jaiswal has a special talent that he can play defensively for 50 balls with good technique against the new ball and then immediately switch to T20 mode. The 12 sixes he hit were very modern as they went into the stands. He doesn't just play a series of shots, he also plays some great shots which are a joy to watch. It is really sad that despite scoring two double centuries, he did not get the player of the match.”

Player of the match award was given to Ravindra Jadeja

Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a double century in the test match played in Visakhapatnam. In the second test match, he played a brilliant inning of 209 runs. But in that match, the title of Player of the Match was given to Jasprit Bumrah. Despite his brilliant performance in the third Test match played in Rajkot, he did not receive the Player of the Match award. Ravindra Jadeja was awarded the title of Player of the Match in the third test match.
