Watch: Yashasvi Jaiswal goes hammer and tongs against Sean Abbott, smashes 24-run in an over | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Young Indian opener Yashasvi Jaiswal set the tone for his with a whirlwind knock of 53 against Australia in the second T20I of the five-match series in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday.
The left-handed Jaiswal smashed 9 fours and 2 sixes during his 25-ball knock but the highlight of his innings came when he hit three fours followed by two successive sixes off five deliveries that decisively shifted the momentum in favour of India.

Jaiswal went hammer and tongs against Sean Abbott in the 4th over of the innings to collect 24 runs after India were asked to bat first by Aussie skipper Matthew Wade.
Having reached a half-century in a mere 23 balls, Jaiswal’s scintillating run came to an end when Nathan Ellis dismissed him in the sixth over. He also had the highest score by an Indian batter in Powerplay in a T20I match.
Australia, who lost the first T20I days after being crowned champions of the ODI World Cup, made two changes in their playing XI.
