Jitu Shelar Tennis Cricket player from Khambalpada, Dombivali


Jitesh Shelar started playing cricket on leather ball since 1999. Under the training of Late Sule sir (dombivli) he started his tennis cricket from the year 2002 along with his 10th standard studies.

He started his career as a rookie fielder behind the keeper and after that he never looked back. Always had a shine of confidence on himself that 1 day people would like his game.

He always used to get out on long early in his innings, came through many scolds and screams to defend the ball. He don’t have much power to take the ball out of the rope, but he didn’t lost his hope.

He tried tried… and now he can say with his head up. He succeeded….

Tennis cricket gave him a New life. It brought his identity in front of many people and even gave him very nice friends as well.
