Hard times Pay Off

In India cricket is not only a game it’s an emotion. People aspiring to take crocket as a profession in India have to go through a lot of tough competition at various levels of selection. It is not easy to manage other things in life when you dream of becoming a cricketer in India.

The inspiring story:

Such is the story of Rajasthan Royals batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal who left his home in Uttar Pradesh at an early age of 10 years and then traveled to Mumbai on the advice of some seniors in order to pursue his dream of becoming a professional cricketer.

Recently while speaking in a podcast to Test Match Special, Yashasvi Jaiswal remembered his tough days and how difficult it was to survive in the new city.

He used to work in a dairy shop where he was kicked out after not being able to work properly as he got tired after his cricket practice. He did not have a place to stay. It was very difficult for him to make both ends meet.

But his hard times have ultimately led to great achievements. He made his debut for the Mumbai Ranji Trophy team at the age of just 17 years.

He became the youngest player to score a double century in a Vijay Hazare Trophy match. On account of his achievements, he was bought by Rajasthan Royals for 3.4 lakhs in IPL 2020. The youngster also came into limelight after his sweet ‘namaste’ gesture to MS Dhoni after the toss in the match against Chennai Super Kings.
