This young 20 year old Pro Kabaddi debutant hails from Palda in Gurgaon where U Mumba captain is also from and hence has been lucky to see the iconic player’s journey from up front. Nitin is yet to start his BA course, but is already looking at a career in kabaddi, thanks to a recent job confirmation as a Havaldar with CRPF.
Kumar grew up watching and later playing kabaddi under the shadow Anup, whom he credits to have inspired and supported him in his journey so far. After 2010, Nitin decided to take up the sport professionally and has already represented Haryana at the national level, played in the Federation Cup and also won bronze at the 2015 Junior National Championship.
