Team India, Mukesh Kumar: Team India will play a three-match ODI series after playing the T20 series against South Africa. The squad of the Indian team for this series has been announced by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). While the captain of this team Shikhar Dhawan, the vice-captain Shreyas Iyer was made. Many new players have also been given a chance in Team India for the ODI series. These players include fast bowler Mukesh Kumar, who plays from Bengal.
Mukesh Kumar remembered his father after his selection in Team India. Recalling his father, he told PTI, “I got emotional. Everything seemed blurry to me. I am only remembering the face of my late father Kashi Nath Singh. Until I played Ranji Trophy for Bengal, my father could not believe that I am a cricketer professionally. My father suspected that I was not a capable player.
Let us inform that before the final match of Ranji Trophy, Mukesh Kumar’s father died of ‘brain stroke’. At the time when Mukesh’s father was ill, Mukesh used to go to practice in the morning and spend the rest of the time in the hospital with his father near the bed. Talking further about his mother, he said, “Today my mother also became very emotional. Everyone at home started crying.”
father wanted government job
Mukesh Kumar’s father wanted his son to do a government job. But fate had something else in mind. Due to the government job, Mukesh Kumar appeared for the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) thrice. However, he could not get selected in the CRPF. But as a first-class cricketer, Mukesh works with the CAG (Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General).
Able to swing the ball
Mukesh Kumar has a wonderful art of swinging the ball on both sides. Talking about this, he said, “All the artwork you have in your hands is a gift from God. But if you do not work or work on the blessings given by God, then nothing will happen. Everything will be in vain.
Talking about further learning, he said, “The meaning of life is that you keep on learning. Learning never ends. As long as I play cricket, I should keep in mind that I keep learning.
He told about his selection that he did not know about his selection until he was included in the official WhatsApp group of the Indian team.
