Tarun wakes up early in the morning at 4am and catches bus to Hyderabad from Aler (70kmd away). He gets down at Uppal by 6am and then again will take a bus towards Ground (Aziz Nagar or Hakimpet) depending on the Venue and will reach there by 7:45am. A struggle which only his team mates know!
That’s his daily routine when going for matches. It’s certainly a learning phase for Tarun tackling so many difficulties including lacking adequate support from family. Tarun is working simultaneously and saving money to invest in cricket so he can make a career out of it.
