Dixit has also represented Delhi at the National Schools event but unfortunately could not book a berth in the Delhi under-19 squad. Dixit is trained by Gautam Gambhir's coach Sanjay Bharadwaj.

As far as International cricket is concerned, there are only two instances when a bowler claimed all 10 wickets in an inning. The first one is the very well known Indian tweaker Anil Kumble who stunned the arch-rivals Pakistan in 1999 at the Ferozshah Kotla and other one was Laker's 10 for 53 for England against Australia in 1956.
