Raj Bawa: Age, Height, Family, Unknown Facts, Biography and More

Raj Angad Bawa was born on 12th November, 2002 (age 19 years; as of 2022) in Nahan, Himachal Pradesh. He did his schooling from DAV Public School, Chandigarh. As a kid, Raj was always attracted towards dance, drama and songs. Even during his school, he would take part in competitions that included all of these interests. Not to mention, his father, Sukhwinder Singh Bawa, in an interview said that he was worried about Raj becoming an actor and not a cricketer or a sportsperson. Because back then he had zero interest in cricket.

Though subsequently when his father took him to Dharamshala Cricket Stadium in Chandigarh, Raj felt a bizarre interest for cricket. His father had seen him bowl at 11 years of age for the very first time in Gurugram. There Raj took 5 wickets in the match. Since then his father helped him practice and train, as he is himself a cricket coach. He especially trained him in batting as he knew that fast bowling came to his son naturally.

Likewise, he is the favorite cricketer of Raj Bawa as well. One of the reasons of him being Raj’s favorite is also that he has seen Yuvraj Singh practice very closely and liked his gameplay a lot. In an interview, Raj said when he first picked the bat he imitated Yuvraj’s batting style and this was the moment where he realized he idolized him. This is because Raj’s father, Sukhwinder Bawa, was the the coach of Yuvraj Singh. Raj is fond of Yuvraj and even has the same Jersey no. 12 as him.
