Rajasthan Royals’ young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal has been on fire lately, both in the recently concluded domestic season and in the ongoing IPL 2023. In just three matches, he has smashed 125 runs and played a key role in supporting Jos Buttler at the top of the order.
Jaiswal revealed that he has learned a lot from the T20 World Cup-winning captain and credited him with helping to improve his game as a cricketer. “I keep learning from him, different shots and (having) different mindsets which has really helped me to improve my game as a player,” Jaiswal said in an interview with India Today.

Jaiswal added that the Rajasthan Royals have a great team environment where everyone is aware of their roles and backs each other up in achieving a common goal – to win their second IPL trophy in history. “The best thing was the environment we had. Everyone was aware of their roles and was trying to follow that. We kept backing and supporting each other and giving it our all to achieve one goal. We are trying to do the same this year and try our best (to make the final),” he said.
The 21-year-old also spoke about his approach at the top of the order, saying that he tries to follow Buttler’s advice to have good intent and play cricketing shots in the powerplay. “In the powerplay, as Jos (Buttler) bhai always says, we have to have good intent and cricketing shots. I just try and follow that,” Jaiswal said.
Rajasthan Royals will face Chennai Super Kings on April 12 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Royals have won two of their last three matches and are currently in second place on the IPL Points Table, while MS Dhoni’s team is fifth on the table with the same number of points in the same number of games. With Jaiswal in top form and Buttler providing valuable guidance, Rajasthan will be hoping to continue their winning streak and move closer to their goal of winning the IPL trophy.
