Early life

If you look back at the life of Lukman Meriwala, he belongs to a very poor family of farmers and had to be dependent on his relatives for financial help. He is a very simple person and back in the year 2006, he used to cut and weld metal in very harsh conditions where he had to shield his eyes from all the sparks that occurred due to the cutting torch. Whenever he would be around his friends, he always used to tell them that cricket is not something that is meant for them to play.

She has been struggling throughout his life but still, he played 11 of the club sites in Baroda. He always aspired that someday he would also become one of those people who could enjoy playing higher grade cricket but on the other side of the coin he always saw himself and his dream fading away in the darkness. In Gujrat, he had made a schoolboy Chetan sarkariya who had been growing amazingly because he was a salesman at the bookstall of his uncle. This was the reason how this schoolboy could keep finding his cricket. His father was compelled due to poverty to drive a tempo of goods so that daily needs can be accomplished. The school boy’s father kept on doing this even when one side of his body was numb after he had met a road accident.


During an IPL auction on Thursday, both of these two boys Chetan Sakariya and our favorite Luckman Meriwala together had entered into one of the richest leagues of cricket which is considered to be their life-changing moment. Mariwala is also a left-arm fast bowler who was taken up at the age of 29 by the Delhi capitals. The best part is that now he had an income because his base price was rupees 20 lakhs. We can surely say that belonging to a village area like sarnar in Gujarat, IPL has been outreaching to various families and has been helping them to uplift themselves. It is so amazing to know that India has such great talents out there who belong from a rural background and have been able to Mark their name in history. The major team that he has played with is the Delhi Capitals. During one of his interviews, he also said that there is so much to learn from the fast bowlers of Delhi capitals. Other major themes that he has played are with the Baroda and Ruby Trichy Warriors.
