Shubham Garhwal, a left-handed batter for Jodhpur, has revealed that seeing great Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh play well in the 2011 Cricket World Cup motivated him to pursue a career in cricket.
At the Indian Premier League 2022 mega auction in Bengaluru, Shubham Garhwal was purchased for INR 20 lakh by the victors of the first season of the IPL, Rajasthan Royals (RR).
Meanwhile, Garhwal claims that watching Yuvraj’s power-hitting talents in the 2011 World Cup quarter-final against Australia inspired him and altered his life for the better.
“I was pretty young back then, playing gully cricket in Jodhpur, and I couldn’t even handle the bat with the proper grip.” But witnessing Yuvraj Singh have such a great tournament in 2011 really encouraged me,” Garhwal was cited in a statement as saying. Garhwal checked in at the team’s pre-tournament training in Nagpur.
“As a left-handed batter, I used to admire his ability to smash the ball with such ease.” According to TOI, 26-year-old Garhwal added, “I believe there was a moment that truly transformed my life for the better.”
I am really excited to collaborate with Sanga Sir – Shubham Garhwal is an Indian actor.
Being a member of the cash-rich league’s Rajasthan Royals team is the greatest moment of Shubham’s life, he added. He also expressed his delight at the prospect of working alongside Kumar Sangakkara, the renowned Sri Lankan batsman and Rajasthan Royals Director of Cricket.
“It gives me great pleasure to represent the Royals.” I’m from Rajasthan, and this is the most important event of my life. The joy I’ve witnessed on my parents’ faces motivates me to give all I’ve got for the squad.”
“I, too, am looking forward to working with Sanga Sir. He’s one of the best left-handed pitchers in the world, and I’m certain that his instruction will help me improve my game,” said an ecstatic Garhwal.
The 26-year-old claimed he did well at the Royals High-Performance Centre in Nagpur during the tryouts, but he didn’t expect to be selected in the auction.
“I felt in terrific shape throughout the trials, but with so many players available for sale at the auction, I wasn’t optimistic that I’d be selected.” “I was overjoyed when I got acquired; I couldn’t believe it,” Garhwal remarked.
