Karn Vinod Sharma in Indian Premier League
Karn Vinod Sharma was signed up by the IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad in the year 2013. In a line-up comprising Dale Steyn, Thisara Perera and Amit Mishra, young Sharma was the bowler the opposition batsmen were expected to target. He responded with a mature performance. His performance against Kings XI Punjab early on in the tournament was ample proof of his potential, as he beat the Kings XI batsmen with his spin.
He fortified an already strong bowling attack with a decent economy rate and was a good foil to Amit Mishra, the senior leg spinner in the side. When he was given the chance also contributed with the bat scoring a stubborn unbeaten 39 when Sunrisers Hyderabad
was staring at their first home defeat against Chennai Super Kings. In 2014 IPL auctions, he was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs.3.75 crore, in a bidding war with Kings XI Punjab. He is the highest paid uncapped Indian player in IPL 2014. In 2015, he was retained by the Sunrisers Hyderabad and he is yet to play as the lead spin bowler for the team.
