Jayant Yadav, an Indian allrounder who hasn’t played for India after 2017 has tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend Disha Chawla. He has played four Test matches and one ODI for India.
Jayant Yadav has completely fallen out of favour with the national selectors and last played for India way back in February 2017. Four months before that, he had made his debut in international cricket during the Vizag ODI against New Zealand.
Jayant Yadav Impressed After Debuting In 2017
Jayant Yadav has not played any ODI since 2017. Few days after debuting in ODI, he made his debut in Tests too in India’s home Tests against England– a five-Test series. The Haryana all-rounder impressed straight away by making notable contributions with both bat and ball in hand in the Tests. In his debut Test, he scored 62 runs in addition to picking up 4 wickets.
It was followed by his maiden fifty and four wickets in the following game. In his third Test, Jayant Yadav became the first Indian batsman to score a Test century at No.9. In February, he played one more Test which was against Australia before being dropped. The 31-year old has not played for India since then and is unlikely to get a chance in the upcoming days.
