Paras Dogra has been among the heaviest run-scorers in Indian domestic cricket through the mid-2000s up until 2016, but most of his runs were made away from the spotlight, in the lower tier of the Ranji Trophy. Dogra's best season came in 2012-13, when he scored five hundreds in eight matches for Himachal Pradesh, three of them coming in successive innings.
The form he showed that season prompted the selectors to include Dogra in the India A squad for a series of unofficial Tests, in 2013, against the touring West Indies A side. Dogra, though, played only one match, and only batted once - scoring 7 before being bowled by Nikita Miller.
Dogra has continued to pile on the runs since then. In the 2015-16 season, he made the sixth and seventh double-hundreds of his career, in successive innings, against Tripura and Services, and ended the season with 703 runs at an average of 78.11.
Dogra was a fairly regular member of the Rajasthan Royals side in the IPL 2010 season, playing nine matches for a highest score of 41. He was only a peripheral presence in the IPL for the next few years, playing three matches for Kings XI Punjab in 2012 and one match for Kolkata Knight Riders in 2013. Gujarat Lions picked him up for his base price of INR 10 lakh at the IPL 2016 auction.
