Yash’s cricketing mind is very sharp: Father Vijay Dhull

Talking about his son’s leadership qualities, Vijay Dhull said that Yash doesn’t take any pressure and is blessed with a sharp cricketing mind.

Yash’s cricketing mind is very sharp and he takes things very seriously. He picks up very quickly on what batters will do during such a situation. Which bowler should be put against which batter.

“He also makes quick changes. Once I asked him how he does it, then he told me that he keeps an eye on what the batter is doing and where he is making a mistake and then accordingly which bowler will be able to bowl him better. His main focus is over there,” Vijay Dhull mentioned.

“The rest of the other things are different. The players who play game to game do not take too much pressure. There are many players in the team who do not take the pressure and play game to game,” he added.
