Yash Dhull Facts

  1. Before Yash had turned 16 years old, he had already played tournaments in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and Nepal. In an under-19 tournament in Nepal, he had won the ‘Player of the Series’ award. He was only 15 at that time.
  2. He had first come into the spotlight on the Indian domestic scene when he had topped the run-scoring charts in the 2021 edition of the Vinoo Mankad Trophy (the premier limited-overs domestic competition for men’s under-19 cricket in India). He had scored 302 runs in just 5 matches at an astounding average of 75.50, representing the DDCA (Delhi & District Cricket Association). The performance went a long way in him being named India’s captain for the upcoming ACC Under-19 Asia Cup.
  3. In India’s first match at the 2024 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, against South Africa, he had top-scored for his team with 82 runs in a team total of 232 runs. India went on to win the match by 45 runs but the joy was short-lived for Yash as he and 5 other members of the Indian squad had been tested positive for COVID-19.
  4. This meant that all of those players had to miss out on the next (and last) 2 matches of the group stage, against Ireland and Uganda. Despite missing so many first-choice players, India managed to win those games easily, top their group, and qualify for the quarter-final. Yash had recovered in time for that match, against Bangladesh, and had scored 20 runs not out in a tricky chase of 112 runs where India had lost 5 wickets by the time they had reached 97 runs.
  5. In the semi-final, against arch-rivals Australia, he had scored an imperious hundred (110 runs off 110 balls) to steer India to a massive total of 290 runs. India went on to win the match by 96 runs and he was named the ‘Player of the Match’ for his performance.
