Bowling of the Mumbai Indians Yudhvir Singh Charak says his tears ran down his cheeks as bowling head coach Zahir Khan “raised the paddle” after his name was called up during the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction on February 18 this year
“I knew that if my name came out, it would be among the last names. If not, I was fine with him. We all sat; I, my family, our eyes were on television. Then when my name came and when Zack Sir (Zaheer Khan) raised his oar, tears began to flow down my cheeks, “Charak recalled in a video posted by the Mumbai Indians on Twitter.
“I can’t express how amazing this feeling was. This (MI choice) was a really big deal for me and my country (Jammu and Kashmir). They (J&K teammates) had very high hopes that I would play match and match. they are doing well with our country to new heights, “said the right-handed bowler, who was with the team as a bowling alley in the UAE.
Charak, who represented Hyderabad at the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and competed in several age group tournaments, was selected at a base price of Rs 20.
MI team manager Rahul Sangvi said: “We are always good at selecting uncovered players with talent, which we did this year as well, choosing Yudhvir and Arjun (Tendulkar). They were both part of the group of our players in the IPL in the UAE. The coaches were happy that these guys would play the role we were looking at, and we chose them. “
Zaheer said, “So we have Yudhvir that we look forward to. This environment benefits everyone who has been a part of it. We encourage them to enjoy the atmosphere, enjoy the moment and learn while moving forward. “
For Charak, it’s more about learning from a team that has won five IPL titles than anything else. “This is the beginning of my career at a high level. I will learn a lot from the older players. They would choose me with a certain role. So, I want to do the best for my team. And learn as best I can. They are five-time IPL champions. “
