Due to disciplinary issues, West Zone captain Ajinkya Rahane instructed Yashasvi Jaiswal to leave the field on Day 5 of the team's Duleep Trophy 2022 final against South Zone on Sunday (September 25).
Jaiswal, while fielding at forward short-leg, was reportedly involved in a war of words with South Zone's Ravi Teja, necessitating the on-field officials to intervene. He was warned by the umpires for his behavior after a complaint lodged by the batter.
Skipper Rahane was spotted having a word with Jaiswal after Teja's complaint. He had to take the harsh call of asking the player to walk off the field after the 20-year-old continued with his verbal volleys despite repeated warnings.

It is worth mentioning that it wasn't the call of the on-field umpires, but Rahane who decided to take strict action. Satyajeet Bacchav was called in as a substitute. However, Jaiswal was recalled to the field after being out for around seven overs.
The Ajinkya Rahane-led side secured a stunning 294-run victory in the final of the Duleep Trophy 2022 against South Zone to lift the coveted trophy.
