Brad Hogg’s Advice to Up-and-Coming Indian Star Before His Australia Tour: “Yashasvi Jaiswal Needs to Adjust His Game”

<p>During the most recent home Test series against England, a number of young Indian players turned in outstanding performances; Yashasvi Jaiswal won player-of-the-series after an incredible display. Jaiswal finished as the series’ top run scorer with a record 712 runs from nine innings. The series consists of five matches.</p>

<p>In addition to Jaiswal, other players who made their Test debuts were Dhruv Jurel, Sarfaraz Khan, Akash Deep, Devdutt Padikkal, and Rajat Patidar. The others, with Patidar excepted, have already shown potential.</p>
<p>The international tours will put the players to the test, and the Australia trip later in the year presents a significant challenge for these young players—assuming they make the cut—to build on their early success.</p>
<p>Even if the new generation of Indian Test players ends up failing on an international trip for the first time, former Australia spinner Brad Hogg believes they have shown they have what it takes to succeed at this level and it is too soon to pass judgment.</p>
<p>Hogg said on his YouTube channel, “They’re fine players, no doubt about that,” about the young Indian athletes. “It’s much too soon to make judgments, and let’s assume Jaiswal arrives in Australia and doesn’t have a strong series. Even yet, it’s too soon to pass judgment considering this is his first exposure to it. It’s the second time that they come over and play under those circumstances that you start to judge a player at their level. Have they changed? Have they discovered the solutions? And it separates the wheat from the chaff.</p>
<p>Jaiswal, 22, was “exceptional” against England, balancing prudence and aggressiveness, but Hogg believes that because of the speed and bounce he will face in Australia, he may need to change his style of play.</p>
<p>“Jaiswal performed really well at the top of the ranking. How will Jaiswal perform now that he is in Australia? He will need to adjust his strategy. Alternatively, if he chooses to be aggressive, he will add a new set of shots to his arsenal. Because of the increased speed and bounce, he will be able to play the pull and hook shot a bit differently than he does in India. That’s one thing that interests me; instead of trying to strike it hard, he may simply utilize the tempo of it,” he said.</p>
<p>Additionally, Hogg said that he was interested in seeing Sarfaraz’s performance against fast bowlers, and it seems the young player has been honing his craft.</p>
<p>In this specific series, I was concerned about Sarfaraz Khan’s ability to withstand quick bowling. I’d be very interested in seeing how he does in this IPL against a few fast bowlers who will push him with the short stuff, as some of the pull shots he was hitting at the back end against some pure speed tell me that he’s been working on his game,” Hogg said.</p>
<p>With some of the pull shots he’s played, I believe he is almost ready to take on an Australian speed attack here in Australia. It’s encouraging to watch how these young athletes have improved. In international cricket, reaching a fifty, a hundred, or a double hundred is no small accomplishment. These are really talented athletes,” he said.</p>
