Bhuvaneshwar Kumar shared memories about a cricket bat from his childhood, for which all his friends have contributed money. He said:
“We (friends) all contributed to purchase this bat. Each one of us used to carry the bat home for 1-2 days. This picture was taken in my school uniform. I was so excited that I came home from school and picked up the bat straightaway.”
