Relationship to cricket before politics
However, not everyone knows that this young leader has had a relationship with cricket before politics. He could not play a big innings in this field and he followed his father’s footsteps and took entry in politics.

Ipl connection
Significantly, from 2008 to 2012, Tejashwi was part of the IPL’s Delhi Daredevils (Delhi Capitals) team, although he always sat on the bench during this time and he was never included in the playing XI.

Domestic cricket journey
Tejashwi has played 7 home matches in his short cricket career, in which he has scored 37 runs in his name. Talking of bowling, he has managed to get just one wicket.

He played his first first class match for the Jharkhand team. Batting at number 7, scored 1 in the first innings and 19 in the second innings. In this match, he also threw 5 overs but he did not get a single wicket.

In the 2010 Vijay Hazare Trophy, he played two List-A ODIs for Jharkhand as an all-rounder. The first match was against Odisha, in which Tejashwi scored 9 runs and his team lost. In the second match against Tripura, he scored 5 runs and took 1 wicket. The Jharkhand team won this match.

Talking about the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, Tejashwi has played 4 matches in T20 format but he got a chance to bat in only one match in which he could score only 3 runs. He bowled in all these matches but did not get any success.

Perhaps it is the failures of his cricketing career that led to Tejashwi’s decision to enter politics and made his move towards a successful political career.
