A legspinner from Patiala, Sarabjit Ladda made his first-class debut in 2007. He excelled for Punjab in his second Ranji Trophy season - 2008-09 - when he took nine wickets in a match against Hyderabad and finished as his team's second-highest wicket-taker with a tally of 18.
He was rewarded with an IPL contract in 2010 by Delhi Daredevils. His five T20 matches that season fetched him only four wickets and he conceded at 9.53 runs per over. A switch to Kolkata Knight Riders in 2011 didn't help - he went wicketless in two matches and sat out the entire 2012 season.
That unimpressive period also coincided with a two-year gap in the first-class format. He came back in December 2012 and struck with four-fors in two successive matches as Punjab made it to the semi-finals.
In the 2015-16 Ranji Trophy, Ladda picked up 25 wickets in five matches at an average of 25.52 with two five-fors. That helped Ladda get a new IPL contract in 2016 with Gujarat Lions for INR 10 lakh.
