RR vs GT, IPL 2024: We are positive that Jaiswal is going to come back stronger, says Rajasthan Royals assistant coach

As Rajasthan Royals aims to keep its winning run going in the ongoing Indian Premier League, Yashasvi Jaiswal’s form remains a concern. The young opening batter, who has had a terrific outing with the Indian team lately, has so far tallied just 39 runs in four outings.

However, on the eve of its league fixture against Gujarat Titans at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Rajasthan Royals’ assistant coach Trevor Penney backed Jaiswal. “It’s more of a worry for the other team that he is going to fire soon,” Penney said with a smile.

Royals had long camps in Nagpur and Jaipur leading up to the season, and that, Penny believes, has helped the side. “Our preparation, how we want to play the Rajasthan way and playing here at home has helped a lot. We prepared here, we wanted to play better here this year than last year where we lost quite a few games. We have fixed that until now and hope it continues tomorrow. The crowd helps us as well,” Penney said.

“Regards to weather and opposition, we are just concentrating on what we are doing. At the moment it’s working for us…”
