Aniruddha Joshi ha started playing cricket at the age of 14. His first coach was his father. But he did not have a least percentage of infrastructural support at his village Gadag. So Joshi had moved to Hubli and admitted to a proper cricket coaching centre there. Then his career saw some ray of hope as Joshi had represented under-17 Karnataka and then under-19 state team. But during that phase Joshi had to do tremendous hard work, travelling from Gadag to KSCA academy everyday early in the morning and after a rigorous three-hour training there Joshi used to each school. Aniruddha made his debut in List ‘A’ cricket against Railways in a Vijay Hazare Trophy match in 2015.
