    Mumbai: Ahead of the much awaited clash between India and Pakistan in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024, Yashasvi Jaiswal's childhood coach Jwala Singh said that he would like to see the left-hand batter in the playing XI for this big game.
    India will take on Pakistan in their upcoming match in the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

    The Men in Blue are coming into this match after beating Ireland by eight wickets. Babar Azam-led Pakistan conceded a disappointing loss against the US in the super-over in their previous game of the marquee event.
    The coach said Jaiswal started playing under his guidance when he was 12 years old.
    "When Yashasvi Jaiswal started playing with us at the age of 12, he left Azad Maidan and started playing with us. He had a different temperament than other children and he has never disappointed me anywhere to date. He has always made me proud everywhere," Jwala Singh told ANI.

    "Yashasvi Jaiswal was with me at the age of 12, we never thought that he would ever play for India. But Yashasvi had a different temperament than every other child. Due to this, when Yashasvi started playing with us, I also took care of him like my own children and explained to him how cricket should be played," the coach asserted.
    Jwala said that he would like to see the left-hand opener to play in the match against Pakistan on Sunday.
