Yashasvi Jaiswal Early Life
Yashasvi was born on December 28, 2001, in Suriyawan, Bhadohi, Uttar Pradesh. He is the fourth among all the six children in the family. His father Bhupendra Jaiswal owns a small hardware shop in Bhadohi and his mother Kanchan Jaiswal is a home-maker. Yashasvi started playing cricket at a very young age and wanted to prosper his career in the sport but unfortunately, Yashasvi’s family was not well-off financially. When Yashasvi was 10 years old he decided to move to Mumbai to build his career in sport. His father had no objection to his decision as his income was not adequate to run his family.
Yashasvi moved to Mumbai to live with his uncle Santosh in a small house in Worli. In Mumbai, Yashasvi got a job in a dairy shop where he worked during the day time and sleep during the night as his uncle’s house was not spacious enough to accommodate two people. Yashasvi had to work at the shop and then study. He also couldn’t afford to miss a single practice session. He couldn’t manage everything altogether and ultimately lost the job at the dairy shop.
His uncle then took him to the Muslim United Cricket Club in Azad Maidan in Mumbai and after getting admission to that club, Yashasvi could practice regularly. Santosh had requested the owners of the Muslim United Cricket Club to let Yashasvi live in the tent in the garden of the club. For the living, Yashasvi used to sell fruits and Pani Puri during the Ram Leela in Azad Maidan in the evening.
During that phase, he endured so much pain and struggle as he had to survive without electricity and even missed his family.
