The 21-year-old in-form uncapped Indian player, Yashasvi Jaiswal, now broke a 15-year-old record to create a new IPL history. He is the most runs scorer as an uncapped player in an IPL season.

During the inaugural IPL season (2008), then-Australian uncapped cricketer Shaun Marsh scored 616 runs. Till IPL 2022, that record was safe in the list of most runs by an uncapped player in an IPL season.

However, in the IPL 2023, Yashasvi Jaiswal just broke that record in style. The in-form left-handed batter played another crucial innings for his team Rajasthan Royals (RR) during their last league stage game in the ongoing IPL season.
