Corona snatched father
Last month, the father of fast bowler Chetan Sakariya died due to corona virus. Sakariya had informed the fans about his father being infected with Corona. Sakaria had said, ‘I am lucky because a few days ago I was paid my share by Rajasthan Royals. I sent the money home immediately and it helped my father in the biggest of times. However, he could not save his father.
No shoes for training
Chetan Sakariya had come to take full responsibility of his family. Even after this, Chetan did not stop playing cricket. Chetan did not even have shoes for training. A few days before the IPL 2021 auction, Chetan’s younger brother Rahul had committed suicide, but the family did not inform Chetan about it.
Then Sakariya became a millionaire
Chetan used to do small jobs to run his family, but could not do any big job because of cricket. We were very happy when Chetan got selected for IPL. Chetan Sakaria had come to the IPL auction with a base price of 20 lakhs, but there was a competition between both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals to include him in their team. In the end, Rajasthan Royals included him in their team by paying 1.2 crores.
Dhoni’s wicket was memorable
Let us tell you that Chetan Sakaria took 7 wickets in IPL 2021. During this, he did wonders to dismiss the greats like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina, KL Rahul, Nitish Rana. The most memorable moment was the dismissal of Mahendra Singh Dhoni for Chetan Sakariya.
