New Delhi, Dec 13 Ever since 17-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal became the youngest batsman to score a doublehundred in List A cricket, the teenager has been making waves in the Indian cricket circuit. The latest feather in his cap is the selection in the Indian team for the 50-over Under-19 World Cup which will be played in South Africa in January-February next year. At 17 years and 292 days, Jaiswal hit 203 off 154 balls with 12 sixes and 17 boundaries for Mumbai in the recent Vijay Hazare Trophy grabbing eyeballs of the selectors. And as if it wasn't enough, the batsman ended the tournament by scoring 564 runs at a staggering average of 112.80! It was enough for a ticket to South Africa for the allimportant World Cup. However, Yashasvi never had it easy and his new-found success owes a lot to his determination and hard work and most importantly - his love for the game of cricket. Son of a shopkeeper in Bhadohi (Uttar Pradesh), Yashasvi came to Mumbai when he was just 11, carrying a dream of making a living through cricket which had once turned into a burden with frequent stumbles.
