In the current era, every young cricketer sees Indian captain Virat Kohli as a role model and wants to play cricket with him, but few players get such an opportunity. But for those who get this chance, it is like a dream come true.
At least this has happened to Kerala wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Azharuddin. He was bought by Virat-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at an IPL auction held five days ago for Rs 20 lakhs. Mohammad Azharuddin was sitting in a hotel in Bangalore watching the IPL auction. Then he got the information that his dream of playing with Kohli was going to come true. Also he found another reason to be happy.
Exactly two minutes after being selected for RCB, Azharuddin received a message from an unknown number on his phone, congratulating him on being selected for RCB. Azharuddin, referring to the incident in an interview with SportsKeeda, said that two minutes after the auction, I received a message from Virat Bhai, which read, “Welcome to RCB, good luck to all, Virat Hair.”
Made me very emotional. I never thought he would message me. It was a great pleasure for me. There are older brothers whom I see as cricket icons. I have always dreamed of playing cricket with him. I am very excited and happy to be a part of their team.
