Kumar Kartikeya struggle story

Karthikeya MI will replace the injured Mohammad Arshad Khan. Kartikeya is a resident of Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh and his father Shyam Nath Singh is a police constable, mother Sunita Singh is a homemaker. In the desire to play cricket, studies were left behind, but have studied up to 12th through distance education from Uttarakhand.

Karthikeya’s cricket started in Uttar Pradesh, there was no talk. Kumar Karthikeya then moved to neighboring state Delhi, after which he met Delhi coach Sanjay Bharadwaj, Bharadwaj met Gautam Gambhir Unmuk Chand, Amit Mishra, Joginder Sharma. Many players have drawn. Karthikeya continued to work hard in Delhi, but the matter did not work out here too, when he did not get a chance to play in Delhi, the coach took the train to Madhya Pradesh on his advice.

However, even after getting repeated failures, Kartikeya’s courage did not break, and what he had dreamed of. To make it come true, on the other way, he set out in the search of the destination.

Kartikeya tells that I have not gone home for 9 years, I thought that I will go home only when I become something. My parents used to call, again and again, especially my mother was very strong. But I was sure of perseverance. Now after playing IPL, I will return home.

My coach Sanjay sir had discussed this with me in Madhya Pradesh. On his advice went to play in the Shahdol division. Here is my first year in Madhya Pradesh, I was selected in the under-23 team of Stadabai, so I felt that I was selected somewhere. Although the performance in domestic cricket was not so special, when Karthikeya got a chance, he kept on performing there.

On the basis of this Kartikeya has entered the IPL today. Kumar played Karthikeya in the Ranji team in the selection trials and took five wickets, then the team of the Madhya Pradesh team went to play a practice tournament in Mysore. Got to play only one match here, the performance was good, and got selected for the one-day team. Took 8 wickets in four ODIs on a difficult wicket, after which he was selected for the Ranji team. He made his Ranji debut in the year 2018-19, taking a total of 9 wickets including 5 wickets in the innings against Himachal Pradesh in the third match.

Earlier Kumar Karthikeya used to come from Delhi to play Madhya Pradesh but has started living in Bhopal. Coach Sanjay Bhardwaj bears the entire expenses of Kumar Karthikeya’s cricket. Kumar Karthikeya was called for trial by MI before IPL and was selected by the support team. Now Arshad’s injury has given him an opportunity in the main team. Now it has to be seen whether MIK gives this fast bowler a chance or whether this player is sitting.
