With a fair captaincy in the past, Dhul has the experience of leading Delhi’s Under-16, Under-19 and India ‘A’ Under-19 sides, and the right-handed batsman is often referred to as a classy batsman.
Like most of the top level players, Yash’s family had to make some sacrifices to ensure their child’s development in the sport. In a recent interview, Yash’s father revealed without revealing the brand that he worked as an executive with a cosmetic brand and eventually left it all to support his ward’s cricket. The young right-handed batsman has been in sensational form lately, scoring 302 runs at an impressive average of 75.50 in just 5 matches for DDCA in the 2021-22 Vinoo Mankad Trophy.
In a recent interview, when he was asked about his role model in the field of cricket, Dhul refrained from naming any particular person. According to Times Now Yash said, “Anyone who plays internationally is good enough to learn from it. I follow everyone’s game closely. I don’t copy anyone, but everyone is my hero.”
Earlier this month, Yash, who was undergoing a training camp at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, met Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja, who started their path to regaining fitness. The young lad had shared pictures with the two Indian stars on his Instagram.
