The news comes with the Struggle story of becoming the captain of the Prime. The Prime Minister spoke openly about the sad days of his life in an interview with the news agency.

Was playing cricket since the age of 6

Priam was born on November 30, 2000 in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. Priam is a resident of Qila Parikshitgarh, 25 km from the city of Meerut in Uttar Pradesh. The only source of income for Priam's home was his father. At 6, he caught the ball-bats in his hand and at 8, visited Victoria Park in Meerut. Priam believes her father is responsible for her success.

Priyam's father, Naresh Garg, made an impression in the morning

Priam recalls the days before, saying that my father was selling milk. He has also sold school vans and prints to cover my cricket training expenses. Even if they did not have money with me, they would never hesitate to give me rupees. He's my superhero. Because of their hard work and blessings, I was able to reach this place today.

In the year 2011, the tragedy of the mother died

Priam is the largest of its 6 siblings. His mother had said goodbye to the world only in 2011, Priam was broken for a time after his mother left but his family supported him enough to play cricket. "After the death of her mother, the situation was much worse, there was a shortage of rupees in the house. But now the business of Dadu's transport is going well and our struggle days are over," Priam said.

'I've never been alone'

Priam used to travel 25 km from his village for cricket training on a daily basis. His father, older brother, or any of the three sisters has to be with someone to put Priyam in the training center. I practiced cricket for only 7-8 hours and also spent time studying.

'Wants to meet Sachin Tendulkar once'

Regarding the future plan, Priam said, "I am focusing on providing my best performance to prepare my team for the World Cup. He is currently following Rohit Sharma for cricket, but he has taken inspiration from Sachin Tendulkar to become a cricketer. One day Priyam, who dreams of meeting Sachin Tendulkar, wants to wear blue for Team India.
