Vijay Kumar Yo Mahesh[1] (Tamil யோமகேஷ் [2] born 21 December 1987), is an Indian Cricket player. He is a right-hand batsman and bowls with his right hand. He studied in St.bede's Anglo Indian higher Secondary School in Chennai.

He broke into the Indian U19 one-day squad for the series against Australia in September 2005 and played sufficiently well to retain his squad place for both the Afro-Asian Cup and the 2006 Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka.

In his ten U19 ODIs to date, he has taken 15 wickets with a strike rate of one wicket every 32 balls. He is not strong with the bat and when selected usually bats at no. 11. Previously, from 2008 to 2010, he played for Delhi Daredevils in the IPL. He was then signed up by the Chennai Super Kings in 2011 and released after the end of IPL 2012. He is a talented bowler who can swing the ball both ways. In 2012, Yo Mahesh married his long term girlfriend Anusha, who is the daughter of industrialist G. Sree Vidhya. As on 2014, Yo Mahesh and Anusha have been blessed with a baby boy named Viraan.
