Sports News


AB de Villiers names his favourite player of IPL 2023. Many of us might guess that it is Shubman Gill or Virat Kohli, but that is entirely wrong. De Villiers is one of the most popular RCB players who is renowned for his batting skills on the IPL pitches. Even though the Rajasthan Royals (RR) team was unable to qualify for the finals or even the top 4 teams this season, experts believe that Yashasvi Jaiswal played magnificent innings and showed excellent prowess. He is one of the highest run scorers for the team until now. He is also in the race for the Orange Cap reward this season. He has made some excellent scores over the course of the different innings.

Jaiswal has made news because of his selection of shots and his capability to find gaps in fielding to make high scores. His skills were so appreciated and focused on that many experts even forgot the presence of Jos Butler to start with. Considering all this, AB de Villiers stated that Yashasvi Jaiswal was his favourite player for the kind of batting skills he has shown this season. 

AB de Villiers further added that, “Yashasvi Jaiswal for me and by a long margin for sure. He is a young player and has got all the shots in the book. He has a calm and composed temperament at the wicket and I love what he does, dominating the bowlers and always looks like he is in control,” he said. “Shubman is a little bit older, I think Jaiswal’s got a long way to go, and he has all the credentials to become great.”

RR finished the race between the franchise players in fifth place and missed out on the playoffs. In the initial stages of the IPL 2023 season, the team was showing promise by remaining in the top positions. However, the performance of the team slowly deteriorated leading them to fall out of the ranks. They got 14 points from the 14 matches that they played. They won 7 and lost 7. Other teams were simply better than them. In these matches, some of the most spectacular performances of the players were evident. Everyone took special notice of Jaiswal.
