Ranjeet Kalra, former Jammu and Kashmir cricketer and Member BCCI in a statement has termed Dhruv Mahajan, the former Jammu and Kashmir Ranji Trophy Captain as one of the most talented cricketers of contemporary times. Dhruv Mahajan, who represented Jammu and Kashmir in 48 Ranji trophy matches and 37 list A matches announced his retirement from first class cricket recently.
“ Dhruv has been a trend setter. He, along with pacer Abid Nabi, was the first to break into the National League Circuit when both of them were picked up for the Prestigious ICL Tournament. He remains to be one of the most popular cricketers in the State and is full of humility despite his towering achievements. It was Dhruv who captained his club team KCCC to which lifted the title trophy of the JKCA- JKPL tournamen,” Kalra said.
Dhruv’s contribution as a cricketer of repute, both at the National level and at the State level club cricket, has been phenomenal. He was one of the most stylish Jammu and Kashmir cricketers and a favorite with the media. A Captain who believed in leading from the front, Dhruv many a time rescued his side from being defeated, converting the challenges into victories for the State. I have had the good fortune of observing Dhruv from close quarters both as a co- player and later as a JKCA offical and have always found him to be full of optimism and promise. He is a thinking cricketer who was dignified in his conduct. I hope he continues to contribute for the betterment of Jammu and Kashmir cricket in the times to come,” Kalra added.
