taken 462 runs and taken 20 wickets in Ranji Trophy (Source: Express photo by Pradip Das) Top News Once ridiculed and humiliated by senior teammates for lacking class Abhishek Nayar has kept his promise of becoming the team’s most important player and has grown to become a mentor Sriram Veera profiles the all-weather Mumbai all-rounder who has battled the odds and won respect and acceptability “Arre How can you let him bat Is he a batsman He doesn’t deserve to bat in Bombay team nets To bat here you need a bit of class; he doesn’t have it Just ask him to bowl and go away What are you doing Pravin” It’s been 11 years but Abhishek Nayar can still the remember the stinging remarks against him Nayar was asked by coach Pravin Amre to bat at the Mumbai team nets when a few seniors led by Amol Muzumdar waded into him in Marathi Though Amre rebuked the seniors and supported him Nayar was shaken up by the episode Unsurprisingly he failed as a batsman and was dumped from the team in that first season He knew he couldn’t have survived the three ducks —especially after the last scoreless horror of a knock had escalated into another painful memory When he got back to the dressing room he says Nilesh Kulkarni the then captain Ramesh Powar and a few seniors ripped him apart “All the abuses you can imagine were thrown in And I was basically told I wasn’t good enough and should stop dreaming about cricket” That night Nayar went to his room and sobbed Soon he was joined by a young colleague Vineet Indulkar who much to Nayar’s surprise broke down in the room “I know how hard you worked to get here how badly you were treated” Nayar told him to stop crying and with a cocktail of emotions churning inside him — from rage self-pity determination — he texted Kulkarni It was a long message — “I said so many things there anger and hurt of course but also made this point clear: I would never forget what you guys told me but I will tell you this One day I would bat at No 4 for Mumbai and be the main player of the team” That development took years to eventuate but the first step was taken in the next season when he made his comeback to the Mumbai team It came with more pain and tears though He was sitting a touch tensed in the dressing room when suddenly the coach told him to pad up and go to bat as nightwatchman Two of the ducks in the earlier year had come on nightwatchman duty “What the hell is happening I remember telling myself Here I am back in the team after all that has happened and again the same pattern happening” That knock was one strange experience Fighting internally with himself fighting with the world and a desire to prove a point to carping teammates it proved an intense and emotionally draining experience that manifested physically as well He made 97 and cramped up by the end Any exhilaration at a break-out performance though was quickly stubbed out of him Given the ball he began cramping up even more and couldn’t turn out a decent spell As the team trooped back to the dressing room he was hit by another humiliation Muzumdar he says told the coach in his presence “If he can’t bowl then tell him to stay at home” Another Mumbai Ranji night spent in tears in the room “I have made 97 and I am crying in the room” Next day he didn’t get a bowl in the morning session and went to Amre the coach and said “Please tell him to give me bowling sir” After Amre’s intervention Muzumdar gave him the first over after lunch and lady luck winked Azhar Bhilakia the well-set batsman went for a cut first ball and was snapped up at gully Elation inside Nayar lasted just five more balls as it was the only over he got in the innings “At least I wasn’t crying that evening” he says with a smile now More good tidings were to come his way soon As it happened Ajit Agarkar returned to the Mumbai team after playing for India in the next game but somehow Nayar had shifted gears in time A stroke-filled knock ensued in that game – “I played the shots I have never played until then”- and the bowling was incisive The inspiring performance was seen in the nets as well and an impressed Agarkar walked up to the selectors and said “Who is this guy What a good find for Mumbai” And just like that the tide turned for Nayar The frowns evaporated from the dressing room replaced by pats on the back At the end of the season the video analyst did an interview with the team members which was played out to the team Powar’s bytes stood out as redemption for Nayar “I am very sorry and regret insulting Nayar last time he was in the team If anyone has contributed to Mumbai this season it is this guy His fighting spirit and fire in the belly has been the standout feature for me this year” Nayar was moved More changes came through Muzumdar too had started to warm up to him and Nayar finally got what he craved for: acceptance and respect Muzumdar doesn’t shirk away from the memories but presents his side of the story after all these years “I honestly don’t remember saying that kind of stuff to him But I guess I was just being the hard-nosed Mumbai captain It was the culture of the Mumbai team then But I would tell you this: In the years that have gone by if there is one thing that has impressed me about Nayar it is his fighting never-say-die spirit and his commitment Not surprising that he has had such a long career for Mumbai I am happy that he is doing well for Mumbai” The Mumbai Ranji team has been this tough hard uncompromising and has been fiercely proud and boastful of the tough attitude – ‘throw the kids in the deep end and see them swim or sink’ The collateral damage though has been young vulnerable cricketers For the 10 who make it several fall by the side And it’s a culture that Nayar has striven in the recent years to change “The famous Mumbai Khadoos is all fine — and I am insanely committed and aggressive on the field myself —but it doesn’t mean you have to stop being nice to people You don’t need to be rude But honestly I have no ill-feeling against Amol or Nilesh or anyone else It made me toughen up and left me with a great desire to prove a point I managed to pull through bounce back but I know many who haven’t” *** We are sitting in the corridor overlooking the ground at BKC Bandra where he was snubbed all those years ago during that training session Amazingly even as he recalls those painful experiences one couldn’t detect bitterness Life wasn’t just tough on the cricket field but also off it When he was in his early 20s family problems left him in a dire financial situation He doesn’t delve too much on the nature of the issue but talks about how it played out on him “I had `2000 in my bank and for months went door to door looking for a place to stay I stayed with well-wishers — a month here a month there — and I am so eternally grateful to all of them who supported me then It was a time of great distress nothing was going right for me in cricket and in life but I am so lucky that I had this support from people” It’s a theme that he constantly arches back in the chat – the vulnerable youngsters of today and how sensitive today’s kids actually are And the insane pressures that these supposedly ‘cool kids’ face today “I don’t think in my time as youth there was this pressure Now every knock of yours is criticised in social media The pressures of getting into an IPL team — I can’t even begin to tell you the pressure it puts on the kids After two bad games the criticism increases so much that they find it difficult to handle” The least he could then do he felt was to create an atmosphere in the team that is supportive and emotionally-enabling Mumbai have a young captain in Aditya Tare and in his captaincy debut season last year he had problems in getting the team behind him There were so many captaincy chops just before Tare took over that he ended up facing the backlash and the side effects It was then that Nayar decided to step in and had chats with the other team members convinced them of Tare’s sincerity of the coach Chandrakant Pandit’s honest intentions and became the mentor of the team So much so that Milind Rege the selector who knows Nayar from teenage days is absolutely certain that Nayar could be the next coach after Pandit in the next few years when he retires “I can’t stress you the role he has played with the youngsters The team atmosphere has changed for good now and he has such great mentoring abilities that I think he should become the coach But please let him play for more years first If anyone in this young team still has the famous Khadoos mentality and knows what Mumbai Ranji stands for it’s him” *** When even your former captain Muzumdar who was supposedly really hard on you praises you on your attitude and temperament you must be doing something right Nayar has done much right over the years for Mumbai in his own unique way That awkward crouching wide-open stance of his is apparently a sanitised version of what it used to be in his teenage years (thank god for small mercies eh! “I am not a talented cricketer like some.shot the two persons and escaped, Kishan said Police vacated the station
