Mumbai vs Jharkhand
On Wednesday, 17-year-old Mumbai opener Yashasvi Jaiswal became the youngest player to score a double hundred in a 50-overs game with an innings of 203 in 154 balls against Jharkhand. In the Vijay Hazare Trophy at Bengaluru. Six years ago, at the age of 11, Jaiswal was staying with groundsmen inside the Muslim United Club’s tent in Mumbai’s iconic Azad Maidan. After he was thrown out of a dairy shop where he slept earlier. He was also selling pani puri and chasing his cricket dream. Today, as the famous maidans buzzed with speculation about the emergence of Mumbai’s next big batsmen. A strong endorsement came from Wasim Jaffer, the former India opener who has put in over 20 years in domestic cricket. “I have seen a stubbornness in him, the sort that is rare to see these days. Such stubbornness is only seen in those who have a single aim in mind” Jaffer said. He went on to add it shows how much potential he has. He has performed everywhere. At 17, he is scoring a double hundred against India pacer Varun Aaron and India A spinner Shahbaz Nadeem. It’s a start, it’s not a small thing that such a small boy is scoring double hundreds in a one-day game,” said Jaffer.
