Rohit and Rahul Dravid gave confidence
After the match, Jaiswal said, I was playing my innings according to the session. When they were bowling well, I just wanted to get through that spell. Initially the wicket was moist and had spin and bounce with little seam. However, I was hitting weaker balls and wanted to play till the end. I will try to score a double century on the second day and play till the end. I want to recover for tomorrow. The pitch played a little differently, it was a little damp in the morning and then it settled down. The old ball was getting some bounce. Rahul Dravid sir and Rohit bhai kept giving me confidence and told me to convert it into a big innings and stay till the end.
