Early signs

Tajinder's uncle used to play cricket seriously, playing Ranji Trophy for Railways. Tajinder started playing cricket from a very early age. His sister gifted him a bat and he used to accompany his uncle before regularly playing street cricket. Then he was admitted to Dholpur Cricket Academy by his uncle. But Tajinder had to struggle for years during that phase as despite training continuously he was not being to get into the academy team for the tournaments. Even after scoring 264 runs and 11 wickets in the under-16 district competitions, Tajinder failed to draw the attention of the state team selectors. Even in the under-19 level, Tajinder was not getting a chance and he became frustrated due to constant rejection. At the same time, Tajinder's family had been struggling with severe financial distress as their family had been facing an acute financial crisis. At the age of 18, Tajinder had to quit professional cricket. But Tajinder had great sisters who had played an immense role to motivate and help their brother so that Tajinder could continue with the game. The sisters took a teaching job and started doing private tuitions to offer monitory help to Tajinder and the all-rounder himself earned from participating in 'masala' matches and cash-tournaments. Tajinder finally made his first-class debut for Rajasthan against Jammu & Kashmir in a Ranji Trophy match in 2017. He scored 18 off 40 deliveries in remained wicket-less. However, later on, he placed himself in the state team as one of the regular members and scored 515 runs from 11 matches so far. Tajinder’s highest score in first-class cricket is 134. He also has participated in 16 List ‘A’ matches and scored 296 runs including his best score of unbeaten 60. He has captured 11 wickets in both first-class and List ‘A’ matches.
