After his nuptials, throwdown master Dayananda Garani was photographed with India captain Rohit Sharma and flamboyant batter Suryakumar Yadav. The Indian national cricket team’s throwdown expert, Dayananda, has received praise from other cricketers for his role in helping them achieve success.
Prior to his time with the national team, the throw-down expert worked for the Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in the IPL. On Friday, April 21, he exchanged vows to marry, and prominent players Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav were present.
The two cricket players, who had trained with Dayananda, took it upon themselves to meet him and his wife and posed for photos after the wedding.
Dayananda Garani began playing cricket as a part-time club player, but he had to overcome many hardships as a result of his humble upbringing. Later, he competed for the Kolkata Police in first division matches and served as a “Green Police” for them.
The bowler, who regularly bowled with his side arm at speeds of at least 140 kph, did all in his power to establish a career in cricket. During his time with the IPL club, he later had the opportunity to share a dressing room with people like KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, and Anil Kumble.
Daya was crucial to my success: Kohli, Virat
Interestingly, the opportunity to work with the national team during the COVID-19 period was what ultimately altered his professional trajectory. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) called Dayananda to come to Australia Down Under because throwdown expert Raghavendra (also known as Raghu) was ill with COVID-19.
The well-known cricketer Virat Kohli has also praised Dayananda for helping to make him successful. The swashbuckling right-hander added that everyone should remember the names of Daya, Raghu, and Nuwan after the completion of the Lanka ODI series.
“This is Daya, Nuwan, and Raghu – they challenge us every day with 145 kmph and 150 kmph, practice sessions are so intense, make us ready for the match, they had played a big role in my success, so everyone should remember their faces & names so thank you guys,” said Kohli in a video for bcci.tv.
