Ravi Bishnoi overview
Ravi Bishnoi is an Indian cricketer who was born on 5th September 2000 in Jodhpur Rajasthan He is primarily a right-hand leg-break bowler and also a right-hand batsman.
Bishnoi is an example of a limitless passion towards cricket which he nurtured since his young age and finally established himself as a cricketer. Jodhpur did not have any cricket culture and there was no infrastructural environment also in his city. Even there was no practice field. Besides, Bishnoi’s father was a government school teacher. He did not also provide mental support for his son who wanted to continue with the game. But Bishnoi used to get relentless support from his mother.
So, Bishnoi and his two friends decided to build up a proper cricket pitch. Bishnoi invested all the initial required money to build up the infrastructure. The ground was a barren land just filled with rocks. They cleared the rocks from the land as they did not have the money to order a JCB truck to clear the land. Then the grass as well as the special red mud, needed to prepare pitch was ordered and gradually the playing surface was also leveled by all these three friends. Then Bishnoi and his two friends gave their training center a name, Spartans Cricket Academy.
