A 24-year old young boy K.K. Jiyas will be part of Indian Premier league with the Delhi Daredevils this year. He is from the village of Narikkuni in Kozhikode, Kerala.

On his way to Kanpur as part of the Kerala Under-23 team for the semi final against Uttar Pradesh on Thursday for the C.K. Naidu Trophy, Jiyas had only his fellow teammates to share the joy with.

 It was just ten days ago that a scout from the Delhi team had come down to watch his left arm chinaman bowling and went back duly impressed and made him part of the franchise for Rs 10 lakh.“I am lost for words. My life has changed in a span of just ten days,” Jiyas said.

 “He is a very hardworking and committed player who has developed really well since joining us,” said P. Sivakumar, chairman of the Academy. Abdul Latheef, Jiyas’ father who drives a cab for a living, was equally ecstatic. “He has been hooked to the game since ages. The only time I was a bit apprehensive about his passion for the game was during his Class 10 days when I feared it would affect his studies. But then I realised that cricket was his world,” he added.
