To be selected in the Indian under 19 team by the junior selection committee in Delhi is one of the most prestigious things to ever happen to any individual. Imagine getting a call from the headquarters and being told that you have been selected among one of those few people who will be coming to Nepal for the one day series!
“When I first got the call, I did not believe it. I thought my friends were playing a prank on me, or they were prank calling me, making fun of the fact that I don’t play that will even though they know that I am actually a good cricketer.
Since my friends are known for playing pranks, I did not believe the call but I had to cross cheque it from the Internet to actually finally swallow the news. I was more than ecstatic, I could not believe my eyes as well as my ears, I was the happiest man on earth. Of course, I had worked very hard for this and I knew that something big was coming, but something this big was completely unexpected and I was entirely blown off by the selection news.
I know I have to work very hard from now, not that I have not been working hard but training sessions are very difficult so just increasing them by a few hours and putting in more efforts is going to do the trick for me. Plus, the best ever coach is always by my side to support me and to make sure that I’m going in the right direction” says Gopal Khilwani.
Gopal Khilwani currently lives in Indore along with his parents come on his father is a businessman and his mother manages a medical company, being in the job for quite some time now.
Nobody quite expected that this young boy from such a common background is going to have ground breaking achievements in the future. This does not just happen by luck, or by the sheer fate, he had to work for it and this is simply the outcome of his hard work. Now he’s just waiting for 12th September so that he could show his true skills.
Gopal Khilwani is such a remarkable boy, he has balanced his educational background and his sports background flawlessly. One can learn a lot from him” pitches in coach Himanshu.
