Celebrations erupted at Mokalwas village in Pataudi as a local lad, Kuldeep Yadav, makes it to the IPL. Bought for Rs 20 lakh, Yadav will debut in series with Rajasthan Royals.

Relatives and villagers thronged his paternal home to congratulate him. Villagers claimed that Yadav started his journey from the narrow streets of the village and reached the IPL.

Kuldeep Yadav said he dreamt of playing for India and now he got a big hope after selection in Rajasthan Royals.

“I worshipped MS Dhoni and Zahir Khan. I will strive for the victory of Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. I could not afford training but my coach Amit Kumar, family and friends helped me in every possible way and got me through. My hard work has started paying,” cricketer Kuldeep Yadav said.

“We are proud of Kuldeep Yadav. He has achieved the milestone by his hard work and dedication. Not only the family, but also the people of the village and the region are happy and feel proud of his achievement,” said Zila Paarshad Vijay Pal Yadav, alias Shanty.

Village sarpanch Manoj Yadav said Kuldeep made them proud.
