The Indian people are currently experiencing one of the most exciting moments in cricket at the hands of Yashasvi Jaiswal the young cricketer who managed to score a double century in the A-List at the age of just 19 and holds the record currently.
The Hard Hitter Trained in Adversity

His mother is Mrs. Kanchan Jaiswal, a housewife, who devotes her life to raising her children by teaching them values of responsibility, dedication and respect.
Young Yashasvi showed talent in cricket at a very young age. At the age of 10, his parents supported him to move to Kalbadevi slum because this slum was closer to the cricket training centre where he was to attend in Dadar Mumbai. Problems of accommodation and training responsibilities forced little Yashasvi to move to live with the gardeners of the United Muslim Club in Azad Maidan, Mumbai, where he often slept without food.
For three years, little Yashasvi endured the adverse circumstances of living in tents without giving up cricket training. To eat, he sold Panipuri on the streets. His luck changed in 2013 when he met Mr. Jwala Singh, who was the coach of a cricket academy in Santacruz. Mr. Singh offered Yashasvi training, house and soon after became his legal guardian. Yashasvi's training is supervised by Mr. Singh cautiously: "It's about doing the right things. Every player should know how much exercise to do, his diet, how much to focus on skill. The balanced practice is more important," he said.
The brightness of a star
