Shrikant  Jhadav
Playing Roll: Left Raider
Nationality: Indian
Born: 17 Sep 1995

Despite starting to play the sport at the young age of 8 years, Shrikant only fell in love with kabaddi 3 years later. After failing to make his school U-14 and U-16 team, he decided he needed to try harder and joined the Kandivali SAI club. After months of rigorous training and learning from his SAI coaches, he tried out for his U-16 school team again and finally got selected. From there he was selected for the state school tournament, where he performed so well, that the coaches had no choice but to pick him for the school Nationals. Later, at age 19, he was the youngest player at the 2014 India Camp.

Shrikant’s entry into the Pro Kabaddi League wasn’t a smooth one either. Despite being selected by Jaipur Pink Pathers in season 1 and 2, he was unable to be a part of the team due to serious injuries faced before the commencement of each season. In Season 3, he was selected by then Bengal Warrior coach who was an ex-BPCL coach, who at spotted him at one of the local tournaments where he played for the Mahindra team. Shrikant continued to play with the Warriors in season 4 as well.

This season being a part of the U Mumba squad has him elated. Hailing from Ahmednagar in Maharashtra, this is his first time playing for a city close to home. “It’s a completely different feeling this season, I am excited to be playing for my state,” he adds.
