Born in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, Yash caught attention when he was included in the Indian team’s bio-bubble for their home ODI series against West Indies earlier this year. The pacer, who plays his domestic cricket for Uttar Pradesh, was picked by Gujarat for a whopping Rs 3.2 crore in the IPL 2022 mega auction.
The left-arm pacer made his List A debut for Uttar Pradesh in the 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy on 21 September 2018. In the next year, he made his T20 debut for UP in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Yash can also contribute with the bat lower down the order, which could be handy for Gujarat in the upcoming matches.
