Many budding players come to Mumbai with the dream of becoming a big player. Some of them become stars, but the dreams of many budding players remain unfulfilled and those whose dreams are not fulfilled, only a few faces are seen in the coming years in some corner of the same stadium. To be connected to the game in one way or the other. One such name is Mudassir Khan, who came to Mumbai from Azamgarh in UP to become a cricketer, but today he is correcting players’ bats in a corner of Azad Maidan. He is also a friend of Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Mudassir has lived in a tent with India’s star young batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal. Not only this, he has also made Steve Waugh crazy with his work. In an interview given to Sports With Taus, Mudassir talked about his struggle.
the only bread earner in the house
Mudassir said that he had come to Mumbai to become a cricketer. He also played here for a few years, but after that the circumstances became such that he started repairing the bat. He had learned this work from his maternal grandfather. Nana’s age had also increased and he was the only earner in the house. In such a situation, he had to leave everything and earn and now he has started enjoying this work.
