Before their first win, first defeat, first game, first ball, first challenge, first stand, before it all begins, every child who dreams to become a cricketer has one coach, physio, mentor, friend. One supports system that preserves the dream and ensures that it becomes a reality, their mother.
And 12 May marks a special day in every cricketer’s journey. Be it the universal boss from Kingston, Jamaica or be it a boy from Shivaji Park in Mumbai, whose name is synonymous to the game .
