Pradeep Jaibeer Sangwan
November 05, 1990, Rasiwas, Delhi
Right hand Bat
Left arm Medium
A left-arm medium-pace bowler like his idol Wasim Akram, Pradeep Sangwan made his first-class debut for Delhi in the 2007-08 Ranji Trophy and took 33 wickets at an average of 19.24. His performances won him a berth in India's squad for the Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia, where he impressed with eight wickets in India's successful campaign, including a spell of 5 for 44 that routed South Africa during the group stages. Not yet 18, Sangwan earned a contract with Delhi Daredevils, and played 28 matches for them in the first three IPL seasons, before moving to Kolkata Knight Riders.
Sangwan's first-class form, however, was flagging and he averaged over 30 with the ball - and as much as 41 in 2009-10 - in four of the next five Ranji seasons. Worse was to come when he tested positive for stanozolol, a prohibited steroid, following a dope test conducted during the 2013 IPL season. He was banned for 18 months, and returned to action towards the end of the 2014-15 Ranji Trophy.
Playing regularly once again, Sangwan picked up 32 wickets for Delhi in the 2015-16 season. It was his best haul since his debut season, and it prompted Gujarat Lions to sign him up for INR 20 lakhs at the 2016 IPL auction.
