Yashasvi then played regular cricket, yet he used to sleep in the gardeners’ tent in the ground and sell fruits and pani-puri in the evening. Local coach, Jwala Singh recognized his talent and offered to take care and provide training. After that, Yashasvi took part in the Harris Shield Tournament which was a local school tournament. He got his name registered in the Limca Book of World Records, for the “Most Runs and Wickets in a school cricket match.” Jwala Singh is the legal guardian of Yashasvi and responsible for all his decision.
