"Cricket is part of my life line and oxygen system of my routine,” he explained. “I started playing for my school and then continued my passion during college time and represented my college team as well. “The turning point of my cricketing time came when I landed in the United States where cricket was a rare game to play in 2007,” added Gupta. “But I managed to set up my own team and stated playing for New York and New Jersey teams on both days of weekends.
