Early Career

Yadav made his reputation in lower-level cricket when he blasted six sixes in six balls in an over at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium during the DDCA T20 tournament.

In a sporting club play versus Najafgarh Sports Complex, he did it again. In that match, Lalit Yadav went on to score a century. He hit a game-high 130 points on only 46 balls. His ferocious innings featured 13 sixes and nine fours. His innings transformed the contest one-sided, as his team amassed a massive total and bowled out the opponents for just 75 runs.

Lalit was a huge fan of Virender Sehwag, the famed Indian explosive opener, and watching him practise inspired him to pursue his dream of being a professional cricketer.

Before the 2020 IPL, Lalit was part of a group that included Rishabh Pant, Mohit Sharma, and Ishant Sharma who practised at a farmhouse. All of them were Delhi Capitals players.
