“(Yashasvi) Jaiswal’s IPL was something special. He almost just flicked a switch and turned into a superstar overnight,” Ponting said.
“Everyone knew that he was a talented youngster, but what I saw in this year’s IPL, he’s got all sorts of talent.”
“I’m on record saying that I think (Ruturaj) Gaikwad’s the same (as Jaiswal). I think he could be a very serious Test match player or all-format player really in the next couple of years.”
