Yashasvi Jaiswal overview

Yashasvi Jaiswal is an Indian cricketer. He was born on 28th December 2001 in Suriawan, Bhadohi in Uttar Pradesh. He is a left-handed batsman and bowls leg-break occasionally.

He is the fourth child of six children to Bhupendra Jaiswal who owns a small hardware store. Yashasvi moved to Dadar in Mumbai at the age of only 10 years. He aimed to learn cricket at Azad Maidan. But Dadar was far away from Maidan (ground). So Yashasvi relocated himself to the Kalbadevi neighborhood and there he was provided accommodation in a dairy shop in exchange for low-grade work. But finally, Yashasvi was rejected by the shop-owner for failing to fulfill the owner's demand due to cricket training. As he did not have his place to live Yashasvi had to stay in a tent with the grounds-staff at the Maidan. The lad had to spend several days sleeping hungry at night and he even used to sell panipuri to fulfill his basic needs.

Early signs

Yashasvi’s potential was finally spotted in 2013 by a cricket coach, Jwala Singh who used to run a coaching center in Santacruz. Then after having spent days and nights for three years Yashasvi got a place to stay provided by Singh. Yashasvi came to the spotlight in 2015 for scoring unbeaten 319 and taking 13 for 99 in a Giles Shield match. His performance was recorded in the Limca Book of Records and as a reward, Yashasvi got a selection in the Mumbai under-16 squad followed by India under-19 team. He earned a lot of accolades being the player of the competition at the ACC under-19 Asia Cup in 2018 which India won. In the under-19 level, Yashasvi had tremendous form as he struck 173 off 220 deliveries in an under-19 Test against South Africa. Later that year Yashasvi also scored 254 runs in only 7 matches including four half-centuries in the under-19 tri-series where Bangladesh also participated. Yashasvi represented under India in the Under-19 World Cup in 2019 and became the highest run-scorer with 400 runs in six innings including a superb unbeaten century against Pakistan in the semifinal. Yashasvi has so far participated in one first-class match and scored 20 runs. Rather he has been more prominent in the List ‘A’ game, scoring 827 runs in 15 matches at an average of 63.61 including three centuries and three fifties. Yashsvi has already set a rare record of being the youngest double-centurion in the history of List ‘A’ cricket at only 17 years old. Yashasvi scored his highest run (203) so far in the List ‘A’ match against Jharkhand in a Vijay Hazare Trophy.
