He made his debut against Telugu Titans and went on to score a High 5 in his first-ever PKL match. He was the top UP Yoddha defender that season and scored 47 tackle points.

During Pro Kabaddi Season 6, Nitesh became the first player to score 100 tackle points in one season as the youngster finished as the top defender of the league. His record remains intact with no other player coming that close to scoring 100 tackle points in one season. He also scored eight High 5s that season to lead the way there as well. For his fantastic performance, he was named as the 'Best Defender of the Season'.
