Profile

A hard-hitting lower-order batsman who also bowls fast and accurate left-arm spin. He first came into the limelight with a century on Under-19 debut for Punjab in the Vinoo Mankad Trophy. He led India to victory in the U-19 Asia Cup in 2016, before being replaced as captain by Prithvi Shaw months before the 2018 U-19 World Cup, where he remained an integral member of the squad. He was bought by Delhi Daredevils for INR 55 lakh ($85,000 approx) at the IPL auction in January 2018, and smashed an unbeaten 46 off 19 balls on debut for them.
