IPL 2023: 3 Reasons Why Yashasvi Jaiswal Can Win The Orange Cap

Yashasvi Jaiswal

Yashasvi Jaiswal is having a fairy-tale of an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 campaign so far. He is a batting mainstay of the Rajasthan Royals (RR) team and is a solid batter at the top for the inaugural champions of the IPL.

In the game between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Rajasthan on 30th April 2023, Yashasvi Jaiswal smashed his maiden century in the cash-rich IPL and the entire Wankhede Stadium bowed down to his brilliance with the willow.

Jaiswal has been in stupendous form in the ongoing IPL and it won’t be long before we see him in the Indian team colours. He has the potential to excel at the big stage and in a team like Rajasthan, he is receiving some top-class mentorship and guidance.

In this article, we take a look at 3 reasons why Yashasvi Jaiswal can win the Orange Cap award in IPL 2023:

1. Yashasvi Jaiswal is in red-hot form in the ongoing IPL

The 21-year-old cricketer is in sublime touch in the ongoing IPL and has been the cynosure of all eyes. Whenever he bats in the powerplay, elegance and class exude from his bat. He is the 2nd highest run-scorer in IPL 2023 so far and has amassed 477 runs in 11 games.

If he continues with this superb form, an India cap won’t be far for him. Jaiswal will also win the Orange Cap award in this season.

2. He has got a wide repertoire of shots

The youngster plays pace and spin equally well and dominates both of them in equal measures. Yashasvi Jaiswal is a naturally attacking batter and has a myriad of shots under his belt.

India presently needs fearless and swashbuckling openers and Jaiswal could perfectly fit into this role. The southpaw presently has a strike-rate of 160.61 in IPL 2023 and is batting with pure aggression.

3. Fantastic domestic record

It is hard to overlook the stupendous domestic record which Yashasvi Jaiswal has. He has been consistently scoring runs in the domestic circuit of India and has been prolific with the bat.

If we glance through his stats in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022, which is India’s premier One-Day tournament, then we know that he has been superb with the bat. In 6 matches, he has logged 396 runs and has been playing brilliantly.

He helped Mumbai win the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in the last season and he scored 266 runs in 10 games for his team. All these records and runs definitely make a strong case for him. Jaiswal is definitely the frontrunner to win the Orange Cap 2023 award if Rajasthan Royals (RR) qualify.
