Ramesh Kumar IPL Team KKR: Father is cobbler and mother sells bangles, KKR changed the fate of this cricketer in IPL mega auction


New Delhi: In the auction of the Indian Premier League (IPL Mega Auction), considering the bid of crores on players, a contract of 20 lakhs may not seem like a big deal, but Ramesh Kumar, who has earned a name in tennis ball cricket, has won this amount. Together they ensured that his father no longer had to work as a cobbler to earn a living, nor would his mother have to move from village to village selling bangles in Punjab’s Fazilka district.

Ramesh, popularly known as ‘Narayan Jalalabad’ in tennis ball cricket, is a star on YouTube even before his game with the ball and the bat. His story has reached out to more people after his contract with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was auctioned last week. Ramesh had asked his aging parents to stop work several times before but they never listened to him. After getting the IPL deal, however, he finally agreed that his son had a future in the game and that he did not need to wander from street to street.

Ramesh, who once scored a 10-ball fifty in a local tournament, said, “They have finally agreed not to work anymore.” I never wanted them to do this work but had to do this work under compulsion. Ramesh wants to use the money from IPL for the education of his younger brothers. Ramesh’s phone has been ringing continuously but his feet are on the ground since the successful bidding by Knight Riders in the auction.

He said, ‘Till now life has not changed, life will change when I perform in IPL. I look at it in a way that I have finally found the platform I needed. Ramesh, 23, from Jalalabad, has shown his prowess in the pan-India tennis ball tournaments for seven years but it was only last year that he started playing with the ‘leather ball’. Ramesh impressed in the Punjab Cricket Association’s district level tournament after which he was called up for the Ranji Trophy camp.

Ramesh, however, credits his career to Punjab batsman and IPL regular Gurkeerat Mann who helped him reach the Knight Riders trials in Mumbai. Knight Riders coach and former India all-rounder Abhishek Nair was also impressed with Ramesh after which the team bought him for his base price. Ramesh told how he used to travel to different parts of the country to earn Rs 500 to 1000 a day for tennis ball tournaments and that is why he got the opportunity to board a plane for the first time.
