Aakash Chopra on the dismissal of Yashasvi Jaiswal in the 5th T20I against the West Indies

Former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra feels that the recklessness of Yashasvi Jaiswal led to his dismissal in the 5th T20I against the West Indies. Jaiswal scored only five runs in four deliveries as team India set a target of 166 runs for the Windies in Lauderhill, Florida, on Sunday, August 13. Brandon King then smashed an unbeaten 85 in 55 deliveries to help his team chase down the target with eight wickets and two overs to spare to clinch the series 3-2.
In a video shared on the YouTube channel of Chopra, he reflected on the dismissal of the Indian opener in the series decider, saying, "Yashasvi Jaiswal was the first to get out, and I personally felt he got carried away a little too much. This will happen; you will get this with youth. He is extremely fearless, but there is a very thin line, which you will see a kid crossing quite a few times."
The former Indian opener pointed out that the youngster's approach at the start of his innings made him feel that he was about to throw away his wicket. He said that, "When Yashasvi played a reverse sweep, I was on commentary, and I said that I felt he would get out. He is very close to my heart, but I felt he would get out, and he got out, not that because I said, but he got out."
