Yashasvi Jaiswal Century: This century is Yashasvi Jaiswal’s first in his career and only his third in this IPL season.
1000th match in IPL history is being played at Wankhede Stadium. Another special day is Rohit Sharma’s birthday. On such a spectacular occasion, the Wankhede Stadium was completely packed for Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma’s super show. Before Rohit’s fire appeared, Rajasthan Royals’ young opener Yashaswi Jaiswal completely overshadowed Rohit’s birthday, 1000th IPL match. He hit the first century in his IPL career and showed the Mumbai bowlers.
Jaiswal, who batted first at the Wankhede Stadium, batted actively from the start for Rajasthan Royals. In the first over, Jaiswal hit Cameron Green for a six. Jofra Archer also scored 6 runs in the next over. The 21-year-old Jaiswal kept his cool despite Jos Buttler’s struggles at one end. He also hit a six in the last over of the powerplay to take the team to 65 runs.
He completed the century with a rain of fours..

Wickets keep falling from here. Jaiswal continued to shine from there. He completed his fourth half-century of the season in just 32 balls. After completing his fifty, Jaiswal was more aggressive. He screwed every bowler. He hit fours in the last 3 balls of the 18th over.
He completed the first century of his IPL career with the second four. He faced just 53 balls to reach this century. It has 16 fours and 8 sixes.
That Maiden IPL Century feeling

This is the highest score by any batsman this season. Also, the uncapped Indian batsman also holds the record for the highest score in IPL history. Batting first, Rajasthan made a huge score of 212 runs based on a successful innings. But apart from Jaiswal, no other batsman could score 20 runs. Jos Buttler finished second with 18 runs.
