Indian captain Amarjit Singh is from Manipur.He also comes from a poor family as his father is a farmer and carpenter while his mother sells fish everyday in Imphal which is about 25 km from her home.
Another player,Sanjeev Stalin is also struggling.His mother sells clothes on the
footpaths of Bengaluru to run the family.
His father goes out for some work to earn money as said by Stalin himself.
