ADESH Bageloo was over the moon after he was selected to represent the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union under 17 high schools squad at the national tournament to be held in Worcester in Cape Town from 13 to 19 December.
Adesh played mini cricket from 2005-2008 before joining the late Jugoo Govender Cricket Academy. In 2009 he represented Ilembe Primary Schools in the KZN Primary Schools Cricket Festival held at the Cato Manor Grounds in Durban.
He guided Manor Primary to honours in the Ilembe under 11 Schools League and the Shivendra Velan memorial six-a-side cricket tournament in 2010.
He joined the Manor Primary School under 13 squad in their cricket tour to Cape Town in 2011 and impressed with both bat and ball in the mother city.
He made his debut for the Dawnheights B team in the Ilembe Cricket Union at the start of the 2011/2012 season.
In 2014 he represented Manor Secondary in the under 15 and Under-19 Ilembe High Schools League and guided both teams to victory.
In the 2013/2014 season he made his debut for the Dawnheights first team at the tender age of 14 and represented them in the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union Challenge League.
After emerging runners-up in the under 15 double wicket tournament in 2013 he came back strongly in 2014 to claim the double wicket title.
He notched up his maiden century for the Dawnheights under 16 outfit in 2014.
Last year Adesh guided Dawnheights to honours in the Ilembe Cricket Union under 16 League and was voted batsman and player of the year for the 2014/2015 season. He represented the KwaDukuza under 19 squad in the Kwanaloga Games and was selected to represent Ilembe at the 2014 Salga Games.
Earlier in the year he clinched the Ilembe Cricket Union under 16 double wicket tournament and represented Ilembe at the High Performance Cricket Camp held in Chatsworth.
Adesh is looking forward to impress with the bat at the national cricket tournament in Cape Town and is indebted to his dad, Dhanraj Bageloo for all his support and guidance.
The officials and players of Dawnheights wish Adesh every success in Cape Town.
