Delhi is one part of India where cricket is pursued with fill passion. No wonder the likes of Virat Kohli, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and so many other international cricketers have come from Delhi. With glitz and glamour also comes intense competition and it’s a no joke to even make it to a state level team considering the intense competition & number of people pursuing professional cricket.

Even though I do not have an exact count but I have smashed approx 30-40 centuries in last one decade across all levels and age groups. I am working hard on my game as well as on my fitness and looking forward to contribute for Delhi in the upcoming state level matches”
