Vikramjeet Malik made his debut in the 2002-03 season, and has been ever present in Himachal Pradesh's seam attack for over a decade. He has picked up over 300 first-class wickets while doing most of his work almost unnoticed in the lower tier of the Ranji Trophy. He was among the top five wicket-takers in the Ranji Trophy in 2008-09 and 2009-10, claiming more than 30 wickets in both seasons, at sub-20 averages.
Around this time, he was also an occasional member of the Kings XI Punjab bowling attack, playing nine matches for them from 2009 to 2011. He moved to Rajasthan Royals in 2013, and picked up eight wickets in seven matches for them, including a three-wicket haul that won him the Player of the Match award against Mumbai Indians in the 2013 Champions League.
At the 2016 player auction, Royal Challengers Bangalore paid Rs. 20 lakh to secure Malik at his base price. They went for him despite the fact that he had not played any first-class games since February 2015, List A matches since November 2014, and T20s since May 2014.
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
