“Aaj tak to ye sab sirf TV par dekha tha…” Jitesh Sharma Excited To Represent India In Cricket At The Asian Games

As the 19th Asian Games approach, cricketer Jitesh Sharma from Vidarbha eagerly awaits the quadrennial event in Hangzhou, China. With cricket returning to the Asian Games after a gap of nine years, India is set to participate in both the men’s and women’s categories.

For Jitesh Sharma, the Asian Games will provide a unique experience unlike anything he has encountered in his cricketing career. Having played domestic cricket for Vidarbha and shared dressing rooms with stalwarts in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and international cricket, representing his country in China alongside a group of young talents will be a rare opportunity.

“Until now, I had only seen all this on TV and in movies like ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.’ Now, I will experience it myself” (Aaj tak to ye sab sirf TV par dekha tha, ‘Milkha Singh’ ki movie mein… ab khud experience karunga) expressed Jitesh, who considers himself fortunate to be part of the Indian squad for the Asian Games. Wearing the blue jersey for the first time in China will be an achievement in itself, and the 29-year-old cricketer is determined to sing the national anthem while standing on the podium with a gold medal around his neck.

Including cricket in the Asian Games provides an exciting platform for players like Jitesh Sharma to showcase their skills at an international multi-sport event. It is an opportunity for them to represent their country and compete for the ultimate glory in a sport not commonly associated with the Asian Games.
