Vasu Vats Facts

  1. Although both his parents are teachers, Vasu was never interested in studies. In his childhood, he used to travel great distances daily so that he could practice his skills at the cricket academy.
  2. He first came into limelight in October 2021 Vinoo Mankad Trophy (the major limited-overs domestic competition for men’s under-19 cricket in India) match against Nagaland where he was representing his home state Uttar Pradesh. He made barely reliable figures of 8 wickets for just 4 runs in 7 overs (of which 3 were maidens). He also took a hat-trick (a feat of taking 3 wickets in 3 consecutive balls) in that match.
  3. This performance, exactly 2 months before 2021 ACC Under-19 Asia Cup This meant that he was certain to be selected in India’s squad for the tournament. However, an injury just before the start of the tournament meant he was forced to withdraw his name.
  4. Then to 2022. Selected in India’s team for ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup But in India’s opening match against South Africa, he could not make it to the playing XI. Soon after that match, India captain Yash Dhul and 5 other members of the Indian team were tested positive for COVID-19. This meant that all those players had to miss the next (and last) 2 matches of the group stage against Ireland and Uganda.
  5. Vasu did not make it to the match against Ireland but was selected in the match against Uganda. The match was his Youth ODI debut and he bowled a 1/18 spell in 4 overs as Uganda were bundled out for just 79 runs. India’s 326-run victory margin in this match was the second-largest victory margin in the history of Youth ODIs.
  6. All members of India’s squad that were affected by COVID-19 had recovered in time for the quarter-final match against Bangladesh, and regular members of the team’s playing XI regained their places. Just before that match, it was reported that Vasu had suffered a hamstring injury and would be ruled out of the rest of the tournament. In his place, wicket-keeper batsman Aaradhya Yadav has been included in the team.
