I have known Charu Sharma as a diver, looking to promote swimming and, in recent years, kabaddi. Countless interactions at cricket matches. He was a revelation today at the IPL auction. Superb job my friend. You have won thousands of admirers @Charuonsports— Vijay Lokapally 🇮🇳 (@vijaylokapally) February 12, 2022
