In the second Test of India's West Indies tour last year, Yashasvi Jaiswal He threw away his wicket after working hard to score a half-century in India's first innings. On the next tour of South Africa, Jaiswal faced Sunil Gavaskar in the hotel elevator, and the batting legend gave the youngster a “mild reprimand” for his dismissal.
Gavaskar's words seem to have worked wonders on Jaiswal's outlook as he scored a mammoth 712 runs in the recently concluded five-Test home series against England – the highest by any Indian batsman against England in a Test series. Highest score made by.

“It was great to see Yashasvi score so many runs (against England) and the way he dominated the attack,” Gavaskar said in an interview with Hindustan Times.

“I gave him a mild rebuke in the hotel lift on the first day of the first Test in South Africa for throwing away his wicket after a good score of 50 in Trinidad (during the West Indies tour) and told him to never do the bowlers a favor. “Don't do it. Thankfully, he listened to me and got two big doubles in this series,” Gavaskar said.
Jaiswal's run tally against England includes two double centuries. He also scored three half-centuries.

“He scored three other half-centuries and he forgot what I told him there (in the hotel lift),” Gavaskar said light-heartedly. “But hey, who listens to anyone when they turn 20? I didn't either. Hopefully, he goes on to do big things and never forget that whatever he is is because of Indian cricket.”
ICC has named Jaiswal as 'Player of the Month' for February.
