In the year 2007, cricketer Tushar Deshpande along with three to four of his teammates went from Kalyan to Shivaji Park Gymkhana for selection.
He wanted to give a trial to get batting training. But after reaching there, Deshpande saw that there was a long queue of batsmen. About 40 to 45 players are engaged in the line.
While only fifteen to twenty players were engaged in the line of bowlers. Tushar reached at around 3.30 pm on Shivaji Park Gymkhana. At the same time, there was only time till half past six for the selection.

He stood in the line of bowlers. The line of bowlers was moving fast. Luckily I got the new ball when it was my turn. I set my run up and bowled. It was a very good outswing and Tappa hit it and went away quickly.
Padmakar Shivalkar sir said that you bowled a very good ball, again bowl like this. But, at his behest, Tushar threw the ball again. He was selected after throwing six-seven balls.
He told that the same process continued on the second and third days during the selection. Then Sandesh Kavale Sir and Paddy Sir boosted their morale. After this, he started playing at Shivaji Park Gymkhana and became a fast bowler.
