Pushkar left Greater Noida at an early age. Pushkar’s father left Mumbai without delay so that Pushkar could do cricket and studies from there, as Pushkar’s father knew that school cricket is promoted in Mumbai. Pushkar lived with his uncle in Mumbai, who brought him along to Azad Maidan and took him along, then Pushkar started from the Albarkat school, where he gave tremendous performance on the strength of the Mumbai U-16. He was made captain, which included the Indian team opener Prithvi Shaw and Pushkar played a brilliant 61-run knock against Gujarat in 175 balls with the help of 9 fours in the debut match innings , when he played in Mumbai. The home ground had lost 5 wickets for 50 runs and Pushkar scored the highest score of 61 from the Mumbai team, leading the team to a respectable score of 210.
Pushkar captained with the U-16 as well as selected for Mumbai Camp U-19. But during that time there was an incident in his life that caused him to quit cricket. His father was diagnosed with cancer, his father left them forever due to this dangerous disease like cancer, but when Pushkar stopped cricket, his mother Sushma Sharma explained to Pushkar and asked him to go on the ground and now you just have to illuminate the name of his late father, Pushkar did not delay while focusing on cricket but the only thing troubling him was how financial problems would be solved. But it is said that if the top one closes the path, then opens the other one, then Pushkar was supported by IndiaFirst Life Insurance Company, Pushkar got to play as well as to work, seeing his ability, he got a manager’s job immediately.
