About Hokaito Zhimomi

Born on 24th September 1986, Hokaito Zhimomi faced a plethora of problems while trying to make his mark in cricket. Zhimomi hails from Sangtamtila that is in the same district as the state’s capital of Dimapur.

Conclusion

Given the zeal of BCCI to ensure that the north-eastern states don’t get left out like before, we hope that many more players like him become an integral part of the ongoing emerging talent in the sport.

A player from the region wearing team India’s jersey might further bring the motivation and drive into the minds of youngsters who want to make their career in sports.
