'What a talent...': Virat Kohli lauds young Yashasvi Jaiswal for his heroics against KKR

Kolkata/IBNS: Rajasthan Royals' youth batting sensation Yashasvi Jaiswal's terrific knock of unbeaten 98 against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens here last night has earned appreciation from cricket greats from across the world.

Among all who lauded Jaiswal was also cricket icon and Royal Challengers Bangalore player, Virat Kohli.

In an Instagram story, Kohli wrote, "Wow this is some of the best batting I've seen in a while. What a talent..."

Jaiswal toyed with the hosts in decimating Kolkata Knight Riders by nine wickets in the 56th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Eden Gardens here on Thursday.

Chasing a modest total of 150, Jaiswal led Rajasthan from the front partnering his skipper Sanju Samson in keeping them alive in the IPL 2023.

Jaiswal stopped at two short of his hundred in 47 balls when Rajasthan scored 151/1 in just 13.1 overs.

Though he missed his hundred, Jaiswal's knock comprising 13 fours and five sixes left the Kolkata fans silent in awe at the iconic stadium.
