Profile

Bipul Sharma's left-arm spin and handy middle-order contributions has made him an invaluable asset in domestic cricket in all formats of the game. After 14 Ranji Trophy games for Punjab without a hundred or a five-for - from his debut in 2005 - Bipul made the switch to Himachal Pradesh in 2013 and immediately tasted success. He scored an unbeaten century on debut and followed it up with four fifty-plus scores in his next five games for his new team. Bipul had signed up for the ICL in 2007 but his major assignment came when he was picked up by Kings XI Punjab in 2010. Despite not being a regular in the side, he was often employed by Adam Gilchrist to carry out the holding role during the middle overs. Bipul was not included in Kings XI's squad for the 2014 season, but got a lucky break when he was chosen by Sunrisers Hyderabad to replace the ill Laxmi Shukla for the 2015 season. He played four matches for Sunrisers, scored one run and picked up three wickets but was retained ahead of the 2016 auction.
