Yashasvi said about this training session that “He (Sachin Tendulkar) was really humble and he helped me improve my skills, where he felt there was room for improvement. It was good to see that a legend like him was aware of my game. We had a lot of conversations on what I can do while batting – how should I think, what should be my approach against which bowler, how can I change the pace of the game. There was a lot of conversation with him on all these aspects. I consider myself lucky that I have got a mentor like him.
