Family Background Of Jayant Yadav

His mother was killed in an aircraft crash while he was a child. Jyoti Yadav reared her like a mother as a result. He went to great lengths to ensure Jayant’s success as a cricket player.  Jayant is Yogendra Yadav’s nephew. His father works for Air India as a flight manager. He was always a slacker in school because of his early devotion to cricket. Regardless, he received his early education at DPS School. He was so enamored with cricket that he never lost a singular match on television, particularly Sehwag’s batting. He had dedicated his life to cricket in this way from boyhood. As a result, he had developed into a brilliant all-rounder player as a young guy. He became a decent batsman, being a follower of Virender Sehwag.


Domestic Career

In 2011, Jayant Yadav made his first-class cricket debut against Gujarat, taking six wickets to help his team win. In 2012, his record-breaking partnership of 392 runs for the eighth wicket with Amit Mishra attracted attention and sent a message that he could bat as well. His 211-run contribution to the stand was also his first century in first-class cricket.

Jayant grabbed 33 wickets in the 2014-15 Ranji season, leading the table for most wickets taken. He was picked for the India A team for one triangular series between Bangladesh A and South Africa A by the selectors.

In his third Test match, he got a century and put together a 241-run stand with Virat Kohli, and that is the world’s second-highest eighth-wicket partnership. He was also the first Indian batter to get a century at No. 9. At Wankhede in Mumbai, he scored his only international century against a good English bowling attack. He has 11 Test wickets at a 33.36 average.


In the 2012-13 Ranji season, Jayant Yadav demonstrated his ‘all-rounder’ abilities by scoring a huge 211, his maiden century, against Karnataka while also sharing a record-breaking 392 for the eighth wicket with Amit Mishra.
