Shocking! World Cup winning cricketer forced to sell 'kachoris' to make a living

New Delhi: In a cricket-frenzy country, Imran Sheikh, who played a a crucial role in helping the Indian team win the 2005 World Cup for the deaf and mute, is now forced to sell 'kachoris' to make a living.

According to a Times of India report, the passionate cricketer is now selling "Moong Kachori" in streets of old Pandra.

The 30-year-old, who slammed half-centuries for the Indian team in 2005, started selling kachoris a week ago.

"Cricket is my passion and I want to keep playing. But my financial condition is not good enough to support my family . Playing deaf and mute cricket matches doesn't earn me much money. So I started a nutritious kachori stall with the help of my wife Roza for earning extra income. I also got a temporary job in Gujarat Refinery, thanks to my coach Nitendra Singh," Imran told TOI in sign language.
