Yashasvi Jaiswal, the opener for the Rajasthan Royals, scored a brilliant century against the Mumbai Indians during the current IPL 2023. In the meantime, despite the fact that the Sanju Samson-led team lost the game by six wickets, Jaiswal was praised for his performance on April 30 by India captain Rohit Sharma, Tim David, and Kumar Sangakkara, among others.
Notably, the tale of Jaiswal’s humble upbringing and selling panipuri on the streets of Mumbai went viral on social media shortly after his masterclass. Speaking on the matter, his erstwhile coach Jwala Singh stated that he is not a fan of the story and that the 22-year-old is playing such a high-quality brand of cricket due to his hard work.
“I truly dislike the tale (of peddling panipuri). According to Jwala, who was quoted by NDTV, he plays cricket due to his diligence.
“Many vendors have set up shop near the Azad Maidan. On occasion, when he was free in the evenings, he would lend a hand. He did not set up his own booth. “It’s not that he sold panipuris and then went on to play for India,” he continued.
Since I had a secure existence in Mumbai, I treated Jwala as if he were my own son.
In discussing Jaiswal’s journey as a cricketer, Jwala disclosed that he first met Jaiswal’s father in 2013, when the latter asked the coach to make Jaiswal a good cricketer. Jwala stated that he treated the cricketer from Uttar Pradesh as if he were his own son because he had a stable existence in the city.
“On December 25, 2013, I met his father,” He stated that I had performed a divine intervention in their lives.Make him sweep and clean the floor, but train him as a cricket player. It was as if his parents had given me his power of attorney stating that he is under your complete control.”
Jwala also stated that the cricketer did not struggle with destitution after 2013 and that he signed his first INR 40,000 contract.
“Since my life in Mumbai was secure, I treated him like my own son. After 2013, there have been no similar occurrences in which he would have been forced to contend. I secured him a contract worth Rs 40,000 for his first bat. I gave him weapons that international players would employ. After 2013, there is no aspect of destitution here. Whatever existed before 2013 no longer exists. Both he and I become frustrated at times due to these incidents, Jwala concluded.
