New Delhi: The Nizam has changed again in Bihar. Nitish Kumar is definitely the Chief Minister, but Tejashwi Yadav, who was the Leader of the Opposition till a few hours ago, has taken oath as the Deputy Chief Minister. JDU left BJP and formed government with RJD. 32-year-old Tejashwi Yadav has become the Deputy CM of Bihar for the second time. But born on 9 November 1989 in Gopalganj, Bihar, Tejashwi’s first love was cricket. He wanted to become a cricketer, but fate probably had something else in mind. Let us introduce you to his first love today.
Cricket Coaching from the age of 11
Tejashwi, the younger son of the house, was brought up with full pampering. At the age of 11, he used to go for coaching in MP Singh’s club. It is said about Tejashwi that he used to keep his security guards away from the field during practice so that the attention of other boys would not be distracted. Tejashwi, a middle order batsman, also used to bowl medium pace. He also had the ability to swing lightly.
Played only 7 matches in entire career
Tejashwi started his cricket career in the year 2009. The debut match was against Tripura in T20 match. Then neither he got the bowling nor the batting opportunity from the Jharkhand team. In the same year, he also got a chance to play a Ranji match against Vidarbha, in which he scored 1 in the first innings and 19 in the second innings. He has played only seven matches in his entire career, including one Ranji, two List-A and three T20 matches. During this, only 37 runs came out of his bat and took one wicket.
Played for Delhi Daredevils in IPL
