Manan Sharma is an allrounder who bowls left-arm spin and is flexible in the batting order. The son of Ajay Sharma, the former India batsman who was handed a life ban in 2000 for his involvement in match-fixing, Manan's first big break came when he was named in the Under-19 squad for the 2010 World Cup in New Zealand.
Two years later, he made his first-class debut and in due course, established himself as Delhi's main spinner, finishing as the team's leading wicket-taker in the Ranji Trophy in both 2014-15 and 2015-16. Manan picked up 35 wickets from eight games, and along with Pradeep Sangwan, powered Delhi's spirited campaign in 2015-16, where they missed out on a knockout spot by a single point.
He claimed his career-best match haul of 11 for 162 in Delhi's four-wicket win over Haryana, and subsequently did well in the Vijay Hazare domestic 50-over competition and the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament. In February 2016, Manan was snapped up by Kolkata Knight Riders for INR 10 lakh at the IPL auction.
The current Ranji season is proving to be a breakout one for Delhi's Rishabh Pant, who is aiming to make it big for his mentor, Tarak Sinha
