What did the sky say
Yashasvi scored 34 off 36 balls against Delhi on Friday night. However, his team lost. Aakash later wrote on Twitter – Ask yourself what he was doing when he was 19 years old, making fun of the Under 19 player. The player he is making fun of was the man of the tournament in the Under-19 World Cup. He made a double century for Mumbai in List A cricket.
Before mocking a 19yo cricketer, please ask yourself — what were you doing when you were 19? The kid you’re making fun of has already represented India at U-19 level, was Man of the Tournament at the World Cup & has scored a double-century in List-A cricket for Mumbai #YashasviBhav

Weak start of fame
Yashaswi’s third match of IPL against Delhi Capitals. Has scored 40 runs in three matches played so far. Jaiswal could not do much in his opening two matches. Rajasthan had their first chance against Jaiswal Chennai Super Kings. There he could only score 6 runs off 6 balls. He played the second match against Mumbai. Played 2 balls but could not even open the account. After this he was criticized.
The journey to IPL was not easy
Jaiswal’s journey up to IPL has been a struggle. He sold Panipuri to play cricket and lived in tents. Jaiswal had scored over 400 runs in the Under-19 World Cup. He was voted Man of the Tournament. Vijay Hazare scored 203 runs from 154 balls against Jharkhand in the ODI tournament for Mumbai. He has scored 779 runs in 13 matches of List A at an average of 70.81.
