In the Under-19 Cricket World Cup held in South Africa, India may have suffered a defeat against Bangladesh in the final, but in this tournament opener Yashasvi Jaiswal 's bat spoke a lot. Jaiswal scored the highest 400 runs in 6 matches which included 4 fifties and a century. He was chosen as the 'Man of the Tournament' thanks to this brilliant performance by 18-year-old Jaiswal. The 'Man of the Tournament' trophy given to Jaiswal broke into two. Surprisingly, Yashsvi did not even know about it.
However, the loss of this star player of India during the award trophy journey has now been rectified. Jaiswal played an unbeaten century against arch-rivals Pakistan in the semi-finals.
A source close to Jaiswal told PTI on Thursday night, 'The trophy had some damage during the journey but now we have fixed it. Such things happen during the journey.
In the title match, 4-time champions India won the title for the first time by defeating Bangladesh by 3 wickets under Duckworth-Louis rule. Jaiswal scored 88, 105 *, 62, 57 *, 29 * and 59 runs in the tournament.
