Instead of going home to Bhavnagar, that player went straight to the hospital to see his father. He said that for the better treatment of his father, he will invest all the proceeds of the IPL.
Chetan Sakaria’s father is Corona positive and is hospitalized.
At the turn of IPL 2021, all the players traveled to their respective homes. Chetan Sakariya of Rajasthan Royals also left for Bhavnagar at his home. But, he did not go towards the first house as soon as he stepped into Bhavnagar. Rather, his steps proceeded to the hospital where his father was admitted. The father of 22-year-old bowler Chetan Sakaria is fighting a battle against Corona in the hospital. His father became Corona positive a week ago. Along with that, he is also a diabetic patient.
After reaching Bhavnagar, Sakariya, who went directly to the hospital to see his father, said that he will put all the money earned from IPL 2021 for better treatment of his father. Chetan Sakaria, who became a part of Rajasthan Royals for 1.2 crore rupees in this year’s auction, said in a conversation with Indian Express, “I am lucky that I got my share money from Rajasthan Royals just a few days ago. I transferred that money at home, which gave my family work during this difficult time. “
Sakaria’s answer to those who raised questions on IPL
Chetan Sakariya also replied in his own style to the people who questioned IPL 2021 in Corona during the difficult times. He said, “People say stop the IPL. I want to say something to them. I am the only one in my family. My source of earning is only cricket. I am able to give better treatment to my father only with the money earned from cricket and IPL. Had this tournament not been for 1 month, it would have been very difficult for me. I come from a poor family. My father ran a tempo all his life. This is the IPL, because of which our life changed. “
Lost his brother, now he will get his father’s treatment
The player from Saurashtra lost his younger brother a few months before the start of IPL 2021. Chetan’s brother committed suicide earlier this year. After recovering from that shock, Chetan Sakaria no longer wants to let his father lose the battle against Corona. So they want to spend all their money in the treatment of father. He also hoped that this tournament, which is currently postponed, should start soon. Sakaria said, “My mother does not know how many zeros are in crores. My first priority is to see my father and then build a house. For this it is necessary that the IPL should start again soon. ”
