Team India’s promising batter Yashasvi Jaiswal is currently in the form of his life. The aggressive southpaw has not kept a foot wrong in his Test career so far. He has scored a resounding 545 runs in three Test matches against England. He has smashed two double hundreds. After scoring 209 runs in the first innings of the second Test, he hit 214 not out in the second innings of Rajkot Test.

Meanwhile, former India captain Anil Kumble lauded Jaiswal for his brilliant batting. He also made a special request to him for the remaining two games.

In an interaction with Jaiswal following victory in the third Test, Kumble told Yashasvi to roll his arm over as a leg-spinner. 

The southpaw admitted that he was interested in bowling, and captain Rohit Sharma asked him to be ready to bowl some overs in the third Test.

“Well done on your batting. I saw your bowling and you should continue to bowl some overs. You have a nice action with the ball nicely coming out of your hand. Don’t give up on this talent as you don’t know when that will come handy for the team. Tell Rohit Sharma to give you some overs,” said Kumble during the interaction.

“I like bowling. Rohit told me to be ready to bowl some overs, and I said yes, I am ready to chip in as a bowler,” said Jaiswal in response.
