Following a brilliant series against England, Yashasvi Jaiswal is having an almost opposite IPL 2024 season . Till now, he hasn't been able to showcase his mettle in the tournament for Rajasthan Royals, and according to former India opener turned commentator Aakash Chopra, it is a cause of worry, considering Jaiswal is in the scheme of things for the T20 World Cup.


"I am getting slightly worried about Yashasvi because Yashasvi didn't used to play like this. He is trying to murder every ball. You are a very good player, and you are good because you believe in timing. You are not a wrestler and you are not Andre Russell. Your playing style is very different," Chopra said on his YouTube channel.

Paying further heed to the matter, Chopra stated that Rajasthan Royals' head coach or India captain Rohit Sharma should have a dialogue with Yashasvi Jaiswal and state him to bring caution to his game

"Since I like this kid a lot, I want Kumar Sangakkara to talk to him, or else Rohit Sharma should pick up the phone and talk to him and say - 'You have to go to the T20 World Cup but this form is not required, play a little cautiously'. He hit a six and a four, and then tried another big shot and got out."
