'Yashasvi Jaiswal hasn't learnt from you': Nasser Hussain hits on Ben Duckett’s comment

 

India’s young batting sensation played with an attacking approach during the three Test matches against England. Ben Duckett stated that the Three Lions deserves some credit for the approach that Jaiswal has adopted an aggressive form of cricket in the red ball format as well

The English opener’s comment received a lot of criticism since then, out of which one was from the former England skipper Nasser Hussain. 

Jaiswal achieved a marvellous ton on Day 33 of the third Test in Rajkot and later converted it to his second double century of the series in back-to-back Test matches.

While speaking about Yashasvi’s effort in the third day’s game, Duckett said, "When you see players from the opposition playing like that, it almost feels like we should take some credit that they're playing differently than how other people play Test cricket."

However, it didn’t take much time for him to receive criticism as the ex-England captain slammed Duckett for his words and asked the side to "self-introspect" when it comes to backing their style of play i.e. ‘Bazball’.

"He (Jaiswal) has not learnt from you," voiced Hussain speaking on a sports show. "He's learnt from his upbringing, all the hard yards he had to put in growing up. If anything, lads, look at him and learn from him. I hope there's a little bit of self-introspection going on. Otherwise, it becomes a cult, and at times Bazball and this regime has been described as such, where you cannot criticise within or externally."

Jaiswal now tops the batting charts with his two double centuries in the present India versus England Test series. He has scored 545 runs in six innings so far at an average of 109.0.

The Mumbai opening batter’s 214 runs in Rajkot assisted the hosts in setting 557 runs humongous target against England. Later Jadeja, the spin oracle, playing at his home ground picked up a five-wicket haul to defeat the England side with a 434-run margin.
