New Delhi. How a cricketer’s life changes overnight with the IPL auction. An example of this is Minnu Mani, a tribal cricketer from Kerala. Minnu was recently bought by the Delhi Capitals team for Rs 30 lakh in the auction for the Women’s Premier League. For this 23-year-old cricketer from Wayanad, Kerala, it is like a dream come true.

After being selected in the Women’s Premier League auction, Minnu Mani said in a conversation with the Times of India, “I have never seen Rs 30 lakh in my life. I don’t have words to describe how I feel right now.” Minnu was in Hyderabad for an inter-zone tournament when she got to know about her auction.

Minnu’s father is a daily wage laborer
The journey from Wayanad to IPL has not been easy for Minnu Mani. Minnu belongs to the Wayanad Kurichiya tribe, and his father is a daily wage laborer. When Minnu was 10 years old, she started playing cricket with her brothers in the paddy fields. But started taking the game seriously in 8th class. At that time she was studying in a government school in Idapaddi. The physical education teacher of the school, Alasamma Baby, first recognized Minnu’s talent and took her to the selection trials for the Under-13 team of Wayanad district. But the parents were against Minnu playing cricket.

Father was earlier against me playing cricket: Minnu
Minnu Mani told about his selection trial, “My father did not have a stable job. He initially discouraged me by saying that cricket is a boy’s game. However, after much persuasion, he agreed and was allowed to go for the trials. I got selected in the under-13 team. After this, I got selected for the state camp as well. After this my father had a complete change of heart and then he did not stop me from playing cricket. Minnu soon made her place in the Kerala under-16 team and within a year reached the senior team.

Used to go to practice by changing 4 buses daily
Minnu had to cross many hurdles to fulfill his dream of cricket. There were no facilities for cricket training around Minnu’s house. He had to go to Krishnagiri for training. He told about this struggle, my day starts at 4 in the morning. I used to wake up in the morning and cook home food with my mother. Krishnagiri Stadium was about one and a half hour away from my house. Since there is no direct bus service from my house to Krishnagiri. For this reason, I used to change 4 buses and reach Krishnagiri Stadium at 9 in the morning and return home at 7 in the evening.

BCCI shaken by Chetan Sharma’s sensational revelations, preparations for all-out action, now the countdown for the Chief Selector begins!

Father security guard, pays fees from cricket earnings, who is the cricketer who became a star overnight with one catch?

Most of the players buy expensive vehicles or houses as soon as they get the IPL contract. But Minnu’s wish is small. She wants to buy a scooter. With this, they will get rid of the problem of having to change 4 buses daily for practice. The time it takes to travel will be saved and she will be able to concentrate more on her training.
