He is very young, with a small frame and an innocent smile, however he is a complete cricketing package wherein he opens the batting coupled with lighting-fast fielding skills and commendable leadership skills.
For a boy whose entire family has been related to cricket right from his 67yr old grandfather Jagdish Jaiswal being a ground-manager at the Dadar Parsee Colony to his father Jayprakash Jaiswal currently giving private cricket coaching at Matunga.The humble background of Ved is finally reaping rewards for his father and his grandfather when they see their grandson/son score as many as 4 back to back double hundreds in the Giles Shield Tournament.
Currently studying in 8thstd, Ved’s father started teaching him cricket when Ved was barely 7years of age. Vedprakash studies at IES VN Sule school & has performed exceptionally well for his school team too (Opener & skipper for his school team).
At the age of 15, Vedprakash has already participated in numerous cricketing tournaments including the prestigious Giles Shield Tournament, Under-14 West Zone Cricket Tournament, Under-14 Future star Tournament and a few more. Ved has also so far represented his school IES VN Sule as a skipper & as an opening batman apart from also representing Mahim Juveniles XI.
In last 8-10 months Ved must have played atleast 20 test matches (2-day test matches) out of which he has scored 9 hundreds which include 4 back to back double hundreds in the Giles Shield Tournament. Ved’s average has been always been in the higher 50’s & the icing on the cake is he is successful as a skipper too.
