Popularly called as “Hanuman” of Madhya Pradesh, Rajat Patidar brought with his blessings and luck and will forever be fortunate enough for this year 2022.
There are many iconic stories of successful players but Rajat Patidar is something different. Like every other committed player, Rajat too carried the heavy kit on his shoulders day and night to practice with a particular aim to be in the Blue jersey one day.
Rajat Patidar was ignored by all the franchises during the TATA IPL Mega Auction, but did not lose any hope and continued to practice with ambition and sheer commitment.
It was certainly “Apna time aaega” for this unsold young player from Madhya Pradesh.
When Rajat Patidar came into Royal Challengers Bangalore as a replacement he did not waste any time grabbing his opportunity and showing everyone what master class innings he can perform.
Having performed incredibly well in some 2-3 games for RCB, it was “The Day” for Rajat Patidar.
When the Eden roared with an expectation of Faf’s skills, Virat’s comeback or maybe their dear Dinesh Karthik’s finishing performance, it was Rajat Patidar who took the command.
No one could have ever imagined Rajat Patidar to come to the crease and hit huge shots to some of the best international bowlers and shattering and slaying all over at “Dada’s Den”.
An uncapped player making his own identity by coming in as a replacement and then getting applauded from Virat Kohli himself, a personal compliment from the God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar and getting into the elite list of century hitters, it was all a great deal for the “Hanuman” of Madhya Pradesh – Rajat Patidar.
Wishing Rajat Patidar a very happy birthday with many more opportunities to come.
