Tejaswi Yadav - "IPL matches are fun and exciting"

Tejaswi Yadav, son of politician Lalu Prasad, who is playing for the Delhi Daredevils team in the IPL season 4, sounded excited about being a part of the tournament. 

He said, "IPL matches are fun and exciting. At the same time, they give you an opportunity to play against so many international, world class players. Day 3 for the Daredevils was unfortunate, as we lost to the Mumbai Indians. However we hope that the team will perform well in the remaining matches." 

The team soon leaves for Jaipur to play against the Rajasthan Royals. Would we get to see him in some action there? "No, I may not go to Jaipur for the next match. I will be playing only in the match after that, which will be held in Delhi on April 19." 


What about his dad? Will he be coming to cheer him at the stands? "Yes, Of course. He was there during the last IPL season and he watched me play at Kotla. He is busy with the elections right now, but he has promised that he will take out some time and come to watch my game."
