Trophy into two pieces

When Jaiswal came back from South Africa he found trophy was lying in the table as broken into two pieces. The 18 year old Jaiswal was not upset on seeing the broken trophy which the most player would preserve for the entire life. Jaiswal’s coach Jwala Singh stated that the teenager doesn’t care about trophies and his main objective is to only score runs.

Jaiswal’s coach said : “This isn’t the first time! He cares more about runs, doesn’t fuss too much about trophies”.

Jaiswal said : “I played a bad shot, it wasn’t needed at that time. The ball came much faster than I expected. I had got a slower ball just before that,” he added “I was a bit nervous and he told me that I am doing well, and just take time in the middle. But it didn’t go our way. Nothing has changed for me, of course, it would have been great if we had won it but it’s not the end of the world”.
