Indian basketball: Sharad Dadhich stayed in camp for 10 years, never got team India's jersey, now dream come true

Since 2010, I have been in the India team camp in some group. But I never got the jersey of Team India. There are 12 players in the Indian team but I have been the 13th player many times. Now my dream is fulfilled. On Tuesday, we are leaving for Bahrain for the Fiba Asia Cup 2021 qualifiers. The Indian team will take part in the qualifiers here from November 24 to 30. The special thing is that after 14 years, a player from Rajasthan has joined the senior basketball team of India. Earlier in 2006, Hirender Singh Rathore represented India’s senior basketball team.

Start with athletics

Sharad Dadhiz of 6.2 feet said- I started sports in 2004 from Sadul Sports School, Bikaner. Initially he took part in athletics. I did athletics for about 3 years. During this time my height got better, so my coaches said that I should try in basketball. I liked this game. Under-16s in 2009-10, Junior Nationals in 2011, Under-18s were probables in 2012 but never got Team India’s jersey. In 2017, the Sabah Cup, Williams Zone Cup and the BRICS tournament also remained in reserve. Then calls stopped coming. I worked harder.

He also did coaching work many times to get the expenses

I am 26 and a half years old. Job was not there. Financial problems also occurred. For this reason, I have had to do many times training to supplement my training and supplement expenses. The dream of this player of Apurna village of Khetri tehsil of Jhunjhunu has now been fulfilled. Sharad, who plays on the position of shooting forward and shooting guard, says the effort will be to play an important role in helping the team win by performing well for India.

Basketball Association congratulated

Sharad was congratulated by Rajasthan Basketball Association president Ajit Singh Rathore, Devendra Singh Shekhawat, Vikram Singh Shekhawat, Karan Singh Shekhawat, etc. on being selected in the Indian team.
