Deepak has always been a keen sports enthusiast and fitness freak, and has also always been surrounded by sportsman – be it his father, older brother or cousins, who all play kabaddi. His interest though, always lay in cricket. He started playing cricket at the age of 11 and wanted to be just like Sachin Tendulkar but when he didn’t make the State U-16 team, he very quickly decided to give up the sport.

His introduction to playing kabaddi was unique. A challenge of 6 raids laid by his friends and cousins, who caught him laughing at them while they were practicing one evening in their village in Gurgaon. If he managed to get all 6 points, he would win. And he did! He friends and cousins were impressed with his play and decided to go to talk to his brother who then suggested to their father, that he start play kabaddi instead of just sitting at home. Once he began training, he easily impressed his seniors and soon started to play in local tournaments. He then tried out for the NYP camp and was selected.

“U Mumba has always been my favourite team since Anup Kumar is from my village. I am happy to be a part of this team and will work hard to be the best player I can.”
