IPL 2022: This player impressed Sachin Tendulkar. Read more

Lengendary Sachin Tendulkar is impressed with Jonny Bairstow’s innings against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday in the ongoing Indian Prmier League 2022.

Bairstow smashed a blazing 29-ball 66 runs in a must win game for his team. Apart from Bairstow, his England team-mate Liam Livingstone cruised his way to 70 off 42 balls to set up Punjab’s 54-run win.

“I was very impressed with the way Jonny Bairstow batted. Bangalore kind of surprised Punjab by introducing (Glenn) Maxwell to bowl in the first over. But the way he smashed him for a six over mid-off, it showed how well Jonny Bairstow used his hands beautifully. He didn’t try to use brute strength every time and his positioning was very nice,” said Tendulkar in a video on his Youtube channel on Saturday.

In the second over of Punjab’s innings, Bairstow smacked a brace of boundaries and sixes each to take 22 runs off the over, an onslaught from which Bangalore could never recover.

“He was extremely smart in the way he was batting against Josh Hazlewood. Hazlewood generally tends to bowl a bit short of a good length and doesn’t bowl much full deliveries. Bairstow didn’t use long-arm levers, but kept his hands closer to body and targeted the square leg and mid-wicket region,” observed Tendulkar.
