Celebrations gripped Mokalwas village in Pataudi after local lad Kuldeep Yadav made it to Indian Premier League (IPL). He was bought for Rs 20 lakh, and now will make his debut with Rajasthan Royals.

The relatives and villagers thronged to his paternal home to congratulate them. The villagers claimed that Yadav started his journey from the narrow streets of their village, and now has reached IPL.

Yadav said that he hopes and dreams to play with the Indian cricket team.

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

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

Village sarpanch Manoj Yadav said that Yadav has made them proud.
