When I played cricket at school, I thought that whenever I was put in, I would try to snatch a big score, because that’s what I was instilled in Mumbai cricket, he added.
The Mumbai batter says that no matter what format he plays in, he is confident that if he is determined, he will turn it into a big score.
I always tell myself that if I’m set up, make sure I do it with a swing and take responsibility for the team. That’s why we like red ball cricket so much, he said.
Jaiswal also talked about the importance of the long format and how it helps in the development of a young cricketer.
Playing in the longer format helps me improve my mental toughness, which is very important because you will be tested in different situations against different bowlers. It’s a lot of fun, he said.
In general, I try to focus more on cricketing strokes. It doesn’t matter what format I play in. It matters what kind of strike I take and how I take it. The only thing I think about is how I build my pitch.
