Rookie sensation Jayant Yadav has been the find of the series for India in the ongoing 5-match Tests series against England.

Jayant was included into the squad because of his exploits with the ball in the domestic circuit, but with one half century and one century so far, he is slowly becoming India's third recognised all-rounder after R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

During his record-breaking partnership with Virat Kohli at the Wankhede on the fourth day of the fourth Test, Jayant also became India's first number nine batsman to slam a century in the longest format of the game.

Jayant's uncle and Swaraj Abhiyaan Political Party Co-founder Yogendra Yadav also expresses his happiness over his nephew's performance.

In an exclusive interview to Pradesh 18, Yogendra also said, "Jayant is an extraordinary talent and he was always destined for something big."

Yogendra also revealed that Jayant's goes by the name of Bolu at home.
