Yogesh Vijay Takawale
November 05, 1984, Pune, Maharashtra
Right hand Bat
Yogesh Takawale made his first-class debut as a specialist batsman for Maharashtra in 2005-06. In October 2006, he scored a fluent 50 against the Australians in a warm-up match ahead of the Champions Trophy and followed that form into the Ranji Trophy, with 351 runs at 50.14. Maharashtra plumped for youth the next season, and Takawale took over the wicketkeeping duties. His hard-hitting batting earned him a place in the Mumbai Indians' squad for the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League and later with a fringe Indian squad for a short tour of Israel.
