Mumbai: The family members of Team India's new player Rishi Dhawan were glued to the TV set in their Mandi home since Sunday morning.

They were excited to find Rishi's name in the final eleven and were not ready to miss a single ball.

 

"Rishi's mother (Shelly) had received the telephone call from Australia yesterday and we were anticipating his inclusion in the final eleven," the father, Ram Pratap Yadav, said. 

"Luckily Sunday being a holiday, my shop (air-conditioners and refrigerators) was closed and we had all the time to witness the match," he said. 

"No, me or my wife didn't go to temple but prayed at home and hoped for his success in the match." 

 

"My wife was more excited and thrilled and had told Rishi to not let go the opportunity and concentrate on the game." 

Interestingly, Rishi's elder bother, Raghav is also a Ranji Trophy player. 

"We both have played together in the domestic matches," Raghav said. 

"I have no regrets. In fact, I am happy for my younger brother who is making his debut today," he said. 

"Rishi has represented the Under-15, Under-17, Under-19, Under-21 and Under-23 teams. Slowly, he has made it to the international team and we all are happy with his progress," Raghav Dhawan added.
