Yashasvi Jaiswal, who made his debut in the world of international cricket against the West Indies, has not been able to do much in T20 cricket. The youngster has been seen struggling to score runs in the shortest format of the game. At the same time, he failed to play a good innings in the match played with Ireland on 18 August. But meanwhile, Yashasvi Jaiswal narrowly escaped getting out due to the negligence of fellow player Rituraj Gaikwad.
Yashasvi Jaiswal narrowly escaped getting out:
This strange sight was seen in the second over of the Indian team’s innings. It happened that the third ball of the over was bowled by Josh Little to Yashasvi Jaiswal, on which he tried to play a shot towards square on the leg side. But the ball went out missing the bat. However, during this, Rituraj ran to collect the single.

In such a situation, Yashasvi Jaiswal also started running to go to the non-strike end, but Rituraj Gaikwad stopped in the middle and returned to his place. During this, Ireland got an opportunity to run out. But the square leg fielder hit the ball at the bowler’s end and Ruturaj Gaikwad took advantage of it by reaching the strike end.
He scored a run by diving and saved the wicket of Team India. In the fifth over, Craig Young got Yashasvi Jaiswal out by captain Paul Stirling. He played an inning of just 24 runs in 23 balls. Meanwhile, he also hit three fours and a six.
