It took 9 years for Paul Valthaty to become an overnight star

If you have been following cricket, there’s a new star in town: Paul Valthaty. After 2 tremendous innings with the Punjab Kings XI, his stock has risen several fold.

An immensely talented batsman from his teenage days, Valthaty saw some of his best years go by after suffering a career-threatening eye-injury in the U-19 World Cup in 2002.”

Rising like a phoenix, Valthaty with his firing batting display has topped the list leaving behind legendary Sachin Tendulkar.

For close to 9 years he stayed in the sidelines, perfecting his art and working hard on his game.

For many more in the sidelines, he is hope that perseverance pays off.

The best way to be successful is to get lucky. To get lucky, never give up.
