Despite being physically challenged from a very young age, Brajesh started playing at a professional cricket club when he was 6. Set out on a challenging journey, he needed support for walking during his teenage years which made fielding a difficult task. Brajesh still bowls with the help of at least two people.

Regardless of the challenges, he never considered himself to be a weak player and always believed in motivating the specially-abled. When not on the field, Brajesh works at IIT Indore as a Senior Assistant in the MSME department. He holds a great passion for his work and cricket alike.
