IPL 2023: Yashasvi Jaiswal on the threshold of creating history, just so many runs away from breaking the historical record
Shaun Marsh scored the most runs in the very first season of IPL as an uncapped player. Yashasvi Jaiswal has a chance to break that record. Jaiswal is just 42 runs away from breaking this record.
When Rajasthan Royals opener Yashasvi Jaiswal walks out to bat against RCB in the 60th match of IPL 2023, he will have a golden opportunity to break a big record. Actually, this record is currently in the name of former Australian batsman Shaun Marsh, but Jaiswal can break that historical record by scoring 42 runs.
Which record is registered in the name of Shaun Marsh?
Australian batsman Shaun Marsh, who played for the Punjab Kings (earlier Kings XI Punjab) in the IPL, holds the record for scoring the most runs as an uncapped batsman. Shaun Marsh had set this record in the very first season of IPL (2008). Marsh scored 616 runs in 11 matches that season at an average of 68.44. Shaun Marsh had not made his international debut till then. Marsh’s debut took place in June 2008, partly because of his IPL performance.
The fastest half century was scored in the last match
Yashasvi Jaiswal has so far scored 575 runs in 12 matches with the help of 1 century and 4 fifties in the season. Jaiswal is currently second in the list of highest run-scorers. He is in the race for the Orange Cap this year. Jaiswal played an unbeaten inning of 98 runs at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on 11 May. During that innings, he scored a half century in 13 balls. This was the fastest half century in the history of IPL.
