He had a productive stand with Hardik Tamore , who scored an unbeaten 51 off 70 balls which eventually win the game for Mumbai rather easily in the 44th over .
Jaiswal finally made 82 off 79 balls before getting out to Bilal Shah . He looked assured, kept his calm & chose the right balls to hit .He smashed 5 fours and 5 sixes . One of his best shots was a 6 off a left arm spinner which was timed so perfectly and hit effortlessly that it went out of the park .
This is big news for his franchise Rajasthan Royals . The Royals team management has played Jaiswal in last couple of games before the IPL 2021 had to be halted due to covid penetrating the bio bubble . One hopes that Jaiswal will be a regular feature in the Royals XI going forward .
