Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Chetan Sakariya has been selected for Team India.

After being selected for the team, Sakariya said that I wish! My father will be here today to see this. They wanted me to play for India. I miss her a lot today. God has shown me many ups and downs in one year. It has been a very emotional journey so far. This is for my late father and my mother. Which allowed me to play cricket.

Corona snatched the father

Last month, fast bowler Chetan Sakariya’s father died of coronavirus. Sakariya had informed the fans that he is infected with his father Corona. “I am lucky because Rajasthan Royals gave me my share of money a few days back,” Sakaria said. I sent the money home immediately and it helped my father in real-time. However, he could not save his father.


No shoes for training

Chetan Sakaria was responsible for his family. Even after this, Chetan did not stop playing cricket. Chetan did not even have shoes for training. A few days before the IPL 2021 auction, Chetan’s younger brother Rahul committed suicide. But the family members did not give this information to Chetan.


Then Sakariya became a millionaire

Chetan used to do small and big works for the family, but could not do any big work because of cricket. He was very happy when Chen was selected for the IPL. Chetan Sakaria came into the IPL auction with a base price of Rs 20 lakh but a standoff broke out between both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals to include him in their squad. Eventually, Rajasthan Royals gave him Rs 1.2 crore and included him in their team.
