This 7 year old kid, Devyansh Kohli was the youngest star of the tournament. This kid showed that age is no bar when you have the will and determination to do anything. Passion for a thing makes certain people separate from the crowd. At this tender age when some doesn’t even know to hold a bat properly or bowl a ball without chucking or even the very basic skills for playing cricket, this kid played in a tournament along with seniors. This kid has showed some serious Guts and passion for Cricket. All the best wishes to this kid for his future.
Sebastian Young once said – “Talent without enthusiasm is like Ferrari without Fuel.”
This phrase is quite easy to understand and is true in many ways. These kinds of tournaments for the kids are the best place for them to showcase their talent and make a name for him. Kids are like little plants who when gets water (motivation) gets enthusiastic and when ignored, it can be very harmful for them. These kids always need backing from their parents and coaches. Parents at home and mentors at the pitch should always motivate the kids and make them follow their passion. Though these mementos won’t last long but these little acknowledgements make huge impression in the betterment of the kid’s future.
These kids showed great professionalism and played with their hearts out. If anyone who is not passionate or enthusiastic enough, can never be a big shining star in the universe of cricket and will never make place in the heart of other people. Virender Sehwag was present during the finale and gave away the awards during the award ceremony. This was a great boost to the confidence of the kids who has seen Sehwag Hit those world’s best international bowlers feared by most of the batsmen over the boundary ropes.
Virender Sehwag’s Cricket Academy has showed the way for the other stars. His noble effort will help the kids to pave their way in the field of cricket. We as sports lovers should appreciate his efforts and try to contribute to the Indian sports in our own way.
