Vaibhav Arora

“Players from weak economic background who made it to IPL”

The Indian Premier League (IPL) has changed the fortunes of many players since its inception in 2008. It has not only given a strong platform to the budding players to hone their skills, the IPL auction has suddenly rained money on them. Be it Nathu Singh, son of a labourer, Mohammad Siraj, son of an auto rickshaw driver or Rinku Singh who was just about to start a sweeper’s job. The fate of all these talents has changed after the selection in the IPL franchise teams. Who does not know about the Pandya brothers today? IPL 2022 was also no different in this respect. This year also many players coming from poor families have taken huge amount. Here we are telling about five such players.

Vaibhav Arora

(Punjab Kings, Rs 2 crore)

From looking for a small job to starting in IPL, 24-year-old Vaibhav Arora’s road was difficult. His father had a milk business in Ambala, Haryana. There was a loss in business and there was a time when the right arm fast bowler decided to quit cricket. But his coach Ravi Verma helped him financially so that he could continue playing. When Vaibhav did not find a place in the Punjab Under-19 team, coach Ravi helped him play for Himachal Pradesh. In domestic cricket, Vaibhav plays for Himachal.

Playing his first match in the Ranji Trophy in 2019, when he blew the middle stump of Cheteshwar Pujara, a player of the Saurashtra team and specialist batsman of the Indian Test team, he was noticed. At that time Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) kept him as a net bowler for IPL 2020. Before the next season, Kolkata Knight Riders bought him for Rs 20 lakh but he could not find a place in the last 11 players.

In IPL 2022, Punjab Kings bought him for Rs 2 crore. In the first match against Chennai Super Kings, he impressed everyone with his performance. In that match played on 3 April, he took the wickets of Robin Uthappa and Moeen Ali for 21 runs in four overs. The special thing was that he bowled 14 dot balls. In this season of IPL, Vaibhav took three wickets in five matches. His specialty is to swing the ball both ways.

Kumar Karthikeya Singh

(Mumbai Indians, Rs 20 lakh)


Mumbai Indians bought Kumar Karthikeya Singh for Rs 20 lakh as a replacement bowler for Mohammad Arshad Khan.

Kartikeya’s father is a constable in Uttar Pradesh Police. He moved to Delhi from Kanpur at the age of 15. He promised the family that he would not burden the family to achieve his goal and fulfill the needs. They used to work at night. He had not eaten for a year. Amidst all this, he did not stop going for practice every morning.

Karthikeya, 24, can bowl left arm wrist spin, finger spin and carrom ball. Coach Sanjay Bhardwaj also helped him a lot and trained him free of cost. Hearing the story of Kartikeya, Bharadwaj allowed him to stay with the cooks working in the Delhi Academy. The left arm chinaman specialist hasn’t been to his hometown for more than nine years. Want to go there only after achieving something in life. Playing his first IPL for Mumbai Indians, Karthikeya took five wickets in four matches.

Kuldeep Sen

(Rajasthan Royals, Rs. 20 lakhs)


Right-arm fast bowler and father of Kuldeep, who hails from Madhya Pradesh, is a hairdresser. He too had to face money problems during his training. He was helped by former Under-19 fast bowler Ariel Anthony from Madhya Pradesh in difficult days. He also made arrangements for food and drink along with the resources required for training Kuldeep. Rajasthan Royals bought him for Rs 20 lakh which was his base price.

25-year-old fast bowler Kuldeep came into the limelight when he won the Rajasthan Royals in the last over of a thrilling match against Lucknow Super Giants in the opening matches of the league. Lucknow Super Giants needed 15 runs in that over to win but Kuldeep did not give them a chance to score so many runs. He took eight wickets in seven matches for Rajasthan Royals. His economy rate stood at 9.42. His father still works as a barber where he gets a salary of Rs 8000 per month.

Tilak Verma

(Mumbai Indians, Rs 1.7 crore)


The left-handed batsman was born in a middle-class family in Hyderabad. Father is electrician. It was very difficult for Tilak to bear the expenses of becoming a professional cricketer. At such a time, coach Salaam Bais helped him and took care that his practice continued. From feeding him good food to keeping him at home, Bias helped him in every possible way so that Verma’s training continued. His efforts bore fruit when 19-year-old Tilak Verma was bought by Mumbai Indians for IPL 2022 for Rs 1.7 crore.

This was the first season of IPL for Tilak Verma. In this he scored 397 runs in 14 matches. He is the second highest run-scorer for Mumbai Indians after Ishan Kishan (418 runs). He also bowls the off spin ball with the right hand. Tilak’s family currently lives in a rented house. He aspires to buy a house for his parents with the money he got from IPL.


Abhinav Manohar

(Gujarat Titans, Rs 2.6 crore)


Karnataka batsman Abhinav was not serious about cricket in the beginning. Things changed when the father suffered a loss in business. As a teenager, cricket was a hobby for Abhinav which later became his passion. He is considered a very dangerous batsman in slog i.e. last overs. The strike rate of his T20 career is more than 150. He scored 162 runs in four innings at an average of 150 in the 2021-22 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Gujarat Titans spent Rs 2.6 crore in IPL auction to include Abhinav in the team. The start of the season was very strong for them. In the first match of Gujarat Titans against Lucknow Super Giants, he scored 15 not out in 7 balls and led his team to victory.

After the match, Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya said, “Manohar’s talent needs to be improved. You will hear about them in the future. Abhinav is the second member of his family to play professional cricket. Her cousin Sharanya Sadarangani plays for the Germany national women’s team.
