Yashasvi Jaiswal dominated Wankhede, the field in front of which he lived in a tent, struck a stormy century

The 1,000th match in IPL history saw the bat storm of 21-year-old left-handed batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal. Yashasvi played an excellent innings of 124 runs off 62 balls aided by 16 fours and 8 sixes at Wankhede Stadium against Mumbai Indians (MI). This season has proven to be very good for Yashasvi so far. The tickets of this century will also be memorable for him, because at one time he used to live in a tent in front of this stadium.

The journey here was not easy for Yashasvi Jaiswal. Yashasvi, a native of Uttar Pradesh, decided to move to Mumbai at the age of 11 to pursue a career in cricket. After reaching there, Yashasvi had to live in a tent in front of the Wankhede Stadium for almost 3 years so that he could do his cricket practice on time.

After this, when Yashasvi was selected for the Indian Under-19 team, his cricketing career took a different flight. In the auction for the 2020 IPL season, Rajasthan Royals inducted Yashasvi Jaiswal into their team by spending Rs 2.40 crore.

With his first century in IPL, Yashasvi Jaiswal has also made many records in his name. For Rajasthan Royals, Yashasvi now ranks first in terms of earning the highest individual score in IPL. Apart from this, Yashasvi has also broken the record for highest individual score in IPL as an uncapped player.

The record for achieving the highest individual score in the IPL as an uncapped player was held by Paul Valthaty, who scored an unbeaten 120 against Chennai Super Kings at Mohali Ground in 2011. Yashasvi now sits first on this list with 124 careers.
