Incredibly talented 21-year-old cricketer Yashasvi Jaiswal has shot past legends like Faf du Plessis and big-hitting New Zealand opener Devon Conway to become the top scorer in IPL 2023.

The extraordinary feat was achieved on Sunday with Jaiswal smashing a quick-fire124 off 62 balls to help his team Rajasthan Royals beat the formidable Mumbai Indians side.

He now has strike rate of 159.70 with 428 runs in the current IPL league this pips South Africa’s Faf du Plessis (422 – Royal Challengers Bangalore) and Devon Conway (414 – Chennai Super Kings).

The youngster came in for huge praise by cricket greats. “What a story, what a special talent. Yashasvi Jaiswal is a superstar in the making,” former Australia batsman and ex-IPL coach Tom Moody tweeted.

“He has got real talent. The kind of domestic season he has had, he has taken that form into IPL. Good for him, good for Indian cricket and good for RR as well,” India’s captain Rohit Sharma remarked.
