“Until recently, I always wondered where I played. There is no soil in my village. I was playing two seasons, one after the wheat harvest and one after the rice. I was leveling the field to play with my hands. And I thought I was from there sitting in the corner laughing about it. “
Once Tiwari asked him:
look at me why are you laughing “So I said the same thing to him and told myself I still couldn’t believe I was sharing a dressing room with you. He told me:
You worked hard for it and you deserve it. “
On Friday, the Indian Cricket Brotherhood and everyone in Mukesh’s social circles will repeat what Tiwari Mukesh said six years ago.
