Watch Video: Yashaswi Jaiswal Scores His 1st Run after facing 53 Balls, What An Epic Moment

Mumbai has strengthened its hold in the semi-finals of the Ranji Trophy being played between Mumbai and Uttar Pradesh. By the end of the third day’s play, Mumbai made 133 runs for the loss of 1 wicket in their second innings and now Mumbai’s total lead has gone up to 346 runs with nine wickets still in hand.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored a century in the first innings for Mumbai, was seen yearning for his first run in the second innings. In the second innings for Mumbai, Jaiswal’s partner Prithvi Shaw made an explosive start but Yashasvi Jaiswal had to wait till the 54th ball for his first run while Prithvi also completed his fifty off 56 balls.

The funny thing was that when Shaw was dismissed in the 21st over after scoring 64 runs in 71 balls, even at that time Jaiswal’s account was not open. But as soon as Yashasvi scored his first run on the 54th ball, the Mumbai players sitting in the dugout clapped for him and Yashasvi also accepted the greeting by raising the bat in the air as if he had completed a century.

After seeing this action of Yashasvi, even the players of UP were not able to stop their laughter. Seeing this innings of Yashasvi, the fans remembered Cheteshwar Pujara, the reliable batsman of the Indian team because during the tour of South Africa in 2018, Pujara also opened his account on the 54th ball and a similar atmosphere was created at that time also. In such a situation, the fans once again remembered Cheteshwar Pujara in the semi-finals of Ranji Trophy 2022.
