Yashasvi Jaiswal says not overthinking and playing good shots allowed him to find his form back 

After struggling in the current Indian Premier League, Yashasvi Jaiswal, a batter for both the Rajasthan Royals and India, claimed on Monday that he was able to regain his form by sticking to the fundamentals and not overthinking during a testing phase. Jaiswal scored an undefeated 104 from just 60 balls, packed with clean drives and forceful leg-side blows. He also hit nine fours and seven sixes.


"I really enjoyed from the start and I made sure I was watching the ball properly and playing proper cricketing shots," Jaiswal told the broadcaster after the match.

"I'm trying to do what I am doing well, some days it comes good and some days it doesn't, (but) I'm not thinking much," he added.

With his first century of the IPL, Jaiswal put a stop to a stretch of barren runs by his high standards and helped Rajasthan Royals defeat Mumbai Indians by nine wickets at this venue. The left-handed batsman had been off to a good start, but had failed to convert any of his innings thus far and, going into this match, had not scored fifty runs in seven straight games.

Rajasthan skipper Sanju Samson said the squad believed it would only be a matter of one game before Yashasvi Jaiswal regained form.

"I don't think he (Jaiswal) needs (any advice from) anyone. He's very confident. (It) was about one game," Samson said.
