Jaiswal notched a magnificent century (171 runs) and his performance steered the Men in Blue to an emphatic win over West Indies in the first test match. The veteran has opined that he knew Jaiswal was special ever since the first time he saw him play in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

“It’s not every day that a youngster comes out in a Test match in his very first game and scores a hundred. The very first time I watched him play in the IPL, I thought there’s something really special. You can always look at the guy and see how much time he has while facing the ball. He’s got time when he’s playing. The pace of the ball is not going to bother him. Even when he’s playing spin, it looks like he’s got time,” AB de Villiers said in a video on his YouTube channel.

AB de Villiers also lauded Jaiswal over his ability to take his time when playing his shots. The veteran revealed that he was happy to see the 21-year-old score a ton on his debut.

“He just looks like he’s got time to make decisions while other players might seem rushed. He’s a very talented youngster and hot prospect for the future for India. I am very happy to watch him score a hundred in that first Test match,” de Villiers said.

Team India are back on track after they picked up a convincing win over West Indies by an innings and 141 runs in the first Test in Roseau, Dominica. The second and final Test will commence on July 20. Following the Tests, India will face the West Indies in a three-match ODI series and the tour will end after the five-match T20I series.
