The past few weeks have been really happening for one of the Rajasthan Royals’ youngest performers, Yashasvi Jaiswal, with the 19-year-old not just getting selected and helping Mumbai beat Oman in a One-Day series, but also having the chance to have a one-on-one session with his idol, the great Sachin Tendulkar.

Speaking after joining up with the Royals’ squad ahead of the IPL, as he quarantines in his hotel room in Dubai, Yashasvi expressed his joy of having spoken and picked the brains of the Indian legend, “My idol has always been Sachin Tendulkar, and I was really fortunate to have a conversation with him before the Oman tour. I was glad that Mumbai Cricket Association invited him for a session before we left from Mumbai to play against Oman.”

“I was over the moon when I first heard he was going to be present there, and when I had the chance to speak to him at length, he was really humble and helped me on some skills where he thought I could improve on. It was good to see that a legend like him was aware of my game, and it was certainly a very happy moment for me. I can’t wait to keep implementing those things in my game and express myself better on the field,” added the youngster from Mumbai.

Reflecting on his recent performances against Oman, Yashasvi said he is happy to have had some cricket under his belt. “It was good practice for me before the big matches in the IPL. It had been a while I had played competitive cricket, and to play against an international team like Oman is certainly good preparation. I’m happy I could score some runs and win some matches for my team.”

A tally of close to 300 runs in the one-day and T20 series combined, including best scores of 90, 82 and 75, Yashasvi says having played in similar conditions to UAE will help him during the IPL. “I had a very good series against Oman and in similar conditions to the UAE. I’m really happy with the way I’m playing my cricket at the moment, and I can’t wait to replicate these performances in the IPL against much stronger line-ups.”
