In the IPL auction, Rajasthan had added Sakariya with them for 1.2 crores. Chetan had lost his younger brother before IPL while his father also passed away after IPL. 23-year-old Sakariya is very happy to be selected in the Indian team.

‘The last few months have been very emotional for me’
Talking to The Indian Express, Sakariya said, ‘I wish! My father would have been here to see all this. He wanted me to play for India. I am missing him a lot today. God has shown me many ups and downs in the last one year. This journey has been very emotional for me. At present, Chetan is busy honing his bowling at the MRF Pace Foundation.
‘This is for my late father and mother’
Indian team will play ODI series in Sri Lanka from July 13. After this the T20 series will be played. Said Sakariya, ‘I lost my younger brother. After a month, I got a big contract for IPL. Last month my father passed away. And now I have got a call from the Indian team. I stayed with him for a week in the hospital when my father was battling for life and death. This loss cannot be compensated. It is for my late father and my mother, who allowed cricket to continue.
‘I didn’t expect to get selected in the team so soon’
Sakaria was never selected in the India A team. Due to his excellent performance in the first half of IPL 2021, the selectors have given him a chance on the Sri Lanka tour. Sakaria said, ‘The way people were talking about me after IPL, I felt that maybe now I can get a chance as a net bowler in the Indian team. I didn’t expect to be selected in the squad for the Sri Lanka tour. I am ready to give my best.
