IPL 2023: Dhoni praises Yashasvi Jaiswal for his match-winning knock against his CSK

JAIPUR: Yashasvi Jaiswal, the opener for Rajasthan Royals, scored the game-winning run against the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2023 Match No. 37. According to Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the opener took calculated risks and went after the spinners at the top.

At the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in this city on Thursday, Jaiswal's aggressive fifty (77 off 43), together with strong bowling efforts from Adam Zampa (3-22) and Ravichandran Ashwin (2-35), helped Rajasthan Royals defeat Chennai Super Kings by a margin of 32 runs.

Yashasvi played excellent batting, making it a priority to attack the bowlers and taking smart risks. Due to the fact that we had to determine the appropriate lengths, it was slightly easier against our bowlers. At the end, Jurel batted exceptionally well," said Dhoni at the post-game presentation. "Yashasvi batted well at the top even then.

When asked about the target, Dhoni responded that it was far more than par since they had given up too many runs in the first six overs. Although it doesn't appear on the scorecard, Pathirana didn't bowl poorly, according to the CSK captain.

"It (the target) was far above average. The first six overs contributed an excessive amount of runs, but at the same time, the pitch was at its finest for batting at that point. The edges persisted in seeking boundaries even as they were ending. We were unable to halt the runs, and they scored a par+, he remarked. The 41-year-old also recalled his legendary 183-ball innings against Sri Lanka in Jaipur in 2005.
