When he was in Bihar in 2008–2009, the Gopalganj district hosted an occasion known as “Pratibha ki khoj.” In seven games, he took the field and claimed 34 wickets. He joined the Bihar U-19 team in 2010 for the BCCI’s Associate & Affiliate Tournament. On January 6, 2016, Mukesh won the 2015–16 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, marking his debut on the international stage. He participated in the 2015–16 Ranji Trophy on October 30, 2016.

On January 6, 2016, he played in the 2015–16 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, marking his Twenty20 debut. In the IPL auction in 2022, Delhi Capitals selected him for Rs. 5.5 Crore. His starting bid at the auction was Rs 20 lakhs.
- Father Mukesh asked Mukesh to enlist in the Indian army since Cricket had fewer opportunities in Bihar at the time. Mukesh was in Bihar in 2012 training for the Indian army, but he was unable to pass the exam after three attempts. He was summoned to Bengal by his father to assist him with his cab business. He moved to Bengal, where he had previously received his military training.
- He participated in tennis ball contests to satisfy his passion for cricket. His coach stated in an interview that although he was getting ready for the army, cricket was his true interest. His coach also claimed that because he took his cricket so seriously, he used to ride his bike 30 kilometers to the academy each day.
- He joined the Bani Niketan club when he arrived in Bengal, where he received payments of Rs. 400–500 for playing tennis matches. Despite his father’s opposition to his choice, he chose cricket instead.
- In 2014, he took part in a trial project for the Cricket Association of Bengal’s Vision 2020 programme. He described an instance from the trial in an interview, claiming that when he arrived at the stadium, he almost missed his chance to bowl because he had to use the restroom. The selectors had marked his name on the list with a cross when he emerged from the restroom. He asked for a chance, and they agreed to let him bowl.
- He made an impression on the judges during the trial and was accepted into the programme. He was put on a proper diet after the experiment, but he failed the medical examination since he was underweight. He discussed this in an interview and remarked,
“I was the youngest of the six, but we had a lot of money issues. My stay at Eden Gardens and attention to my food were organized by Rano, who also communicated with the then-CAB secretary Sourav Ganguly”
- When his father became unwell, he was at Bengal camp and practicing for dream season in Bengal. He used to spend the day practicing and the evenings visiting him in the hospital. His brother told him about his father’s passing in 2019. In an interview, he discussed his father and remarked,
“In 2019, my father suffered a cerebral hemorrhage. He never took me to my cricket games. He pushed me to enlist, and I even took the CRPF test twice. Today, all I want is for my father to be alive. He would have enjoyed that.”
- He stated in an interview that he will utilize the proceeds from the IPL auction to:
“I am from a lowly family. This money will serve as a fallback in case of medical emergencies for my mother. She had pneumonia in her lungs. She is OK right now, but we will need the money if we ever require urgent surgery.”
