Therefore, he started selling Pani-Puri during Ramlila in the Azad Maidan, let us tell you that it is the same place where he used to practice. “I used to earn good money during Ramlila,” said Yashasvi in an interview. I used to pray that my teammates did not come there to pani-puri and sometimes when they come I try to ignore them or to hide because it seemed bad to serve them. ”

This young cricketer also played with big players to earn some money.

Had To Stay Hungry

Yashasvi Jaiswal used to live with the ground’s man in the Tent. They had to do all their household works by themselves and Yashasvi’s duty was to cook food for everyone. There was no electricity, so candlelight dinner was done every day. And whenever he didn’t obey ground’s man, he had to sleep hungry stomach.

According to Yashasvi, “I always used to see that boys of my age bring food or their parents giving them a big lunch. There was no breakfast for me. I had to go to beg others to buy breakfast for me.”

As there was no electricity, there was a terrible heat inside the tent, so they had to sleep outside.
