The last two or three years have been nothing short of a milestone in the life of Indian cricketers. Not only in terms of achieving great results on the field, but also off it. After Harbhajan Singh, Rohit Sharma, Ishant Sharma and Yuvraj Singh, here comes the big news of yet another India team cricketer tying the knot. Let's welcome Sachin Baby to the Big 'M' club!
Many of us may not be aware who the cricketer is as he is not really a frequent member of Team India. Actually, Sachin Baby has not made his India cricket team debut still.
So, why is he so popular? Thanks to his impressive display for his state Ranji team Kerala as well as for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He has the highest score of 25 not out in first-class cricket. The 28-year-old ambidextrous Kerala all-rounder got all over the news earlier this year as visuals of him crying surfaced all over the social media during the IPL final.
Chasing a steep target, RCB couldn't defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Baby, who was still on the crease, broke down after he couldn't lead his team to victory in IPL 2016.
