Can't play basketball with small heights, worked hard to prove it wrong and in the end I got selected: Nima

After failing 5 times, Neema joined the Indian basketball team on the sixth attempt

After dreaming of reaching a higher level in the sports world, that level of hard work is required. Sikkim basketball player Neema Doma Bhutia has achieved this by working hard. He did not have the means to play on an international court. In addition, due to low height, she was not selected in the Indian team 5 times. However, he did not give up and became the first North East player to play basketball for India. His story is included in the NBA documentary series.

‘Basketball is not a craze in Sikkim, there was no international level court here. There are more people playing football. I had to do something different. This was my dream. So I chose basketball. People think that basketball cannot be played with low height. This was to prove him wrong. I came to Madhya Pradesh for college studies and continued to play basketball here. Reached Indian camp 5 times after good performance in the state. But the choice was not made. Don't give up though. I was confident that sometimes there would be a choice and in the sixth time my dream came true. '

‘I played for the Indian team. I always gave more time for the game so that the selection would be done through better performance in the camp. Currently I have been selected in Railways. The Senior Railway National Tournament will be played soon so I am preparing for it. Many players in the North East started playing basketball after my team arrived. My plan is to motivate and train as many young people as possible for basketball. '

Rajvardhan went into depression after the death of his father; Practiced on the farm when out, great performance in U-19

In the Asia Cup Under-19, Rajvardhan Hungarekar has caught everyone's attention with his all-round performance. He has been instrumental in leading the Indian team to the final. He has already gone through depression before joining the team with the same enthusiasm. Hungary have taken 8 wickets in the Asia Cup. He started running in the lower order whenever the team needed him. So far he has scored 84 runs.

Hungerkar's journey to this achievement was also very ups and downs. He broke up after his father's death and Hungerkar felt that cricket was over in his life. But once again he worked hard and showed great performance, so let's take a look at this inspirational story of an all-rounder .....

Lost father in Corona epidemic

Hunger lost his father during the second wave of the Corona epidemic. He was devastated and felt that cricket was over in my life. The Hungarians had reduced their focus on playing the game. Besides, Rajvardhan's father wanted my son to play for the country, not to mention his father who brought Hungerkar to cricket.

Manually rolled the roller and prepared the pitch

Despite persuasion from Matapurkar and friends, Rajvardhan resumed training. Now he also had a new challenge of lockdown. He did not give up, however, and in Osmanabad, Maharashtra, he built his own field with a roller pitch and started practicing. It was only after his trainers and friends persuaded him that Rajvardhan was encouraged to play cricket.

Although bowling training was difficult on a field-ready pitch, Rajvardhan continued to practice with the help of coaches and trainers. In between, Matapurkar and Rajvardhan's coach Mohan Jadhav also gave him tips.

140+ Speed ​​and Long Hitting is the strongest party

Coach Mohan Jadhav said that Rajvardhan will be very useful for Team India in the near future. He has been an all-rounder in Team India with the help of Hangergaker Speed ​​and Long Hitting. When he first started playing cricket it was 127 km / h. But by working hard to increase the line length and speed is 140 km / h. Also can do yorker, bouncer and slow bowling.

Focused on batting for the last 6 months

Jadhav said Rajvardhan has been focusing on batting as well as bowling for the last six months. He is mainly a bowler but has also become a middle order batsman with a focus on batting for 6 months.
