After a 7-year wait. Attending 4 trails, Harpreet Brar finally has an IPL contract. For an extended time, he had been knocking the doors of the Punjab franchise and within the 2018 auctions, he was bought for his base price of 20 Lakh. A left-arm orthodox spinner, Harpreet started off for Roopar within the Punjab inter-district cricket tournament and regularly topped the wicket-takers charts. However, once his team was relegated, the 6 feet 2 inches spinner made a move to Mohali on Gurkeerat Singh Maan’s insistence which worked wonders for the youngster. He hasn’t put a foot wrong since then and went onto represent Punjab U-23 team. Harpreet has taken 18 wickets and also has scored 206 runs in five matches so far .
The all-rounder was handed a debut against Delhi at the Kotla and played a crucial knock with the bat for his team. Harpreet walked in at a difficult situation when Punjab were six down for 129. They needed a desperate lift within the slog overs and Harpreet came to the fore – struck a quick-fire 12-ball 20 including two fours and one six. But he couldn’t quite reciprocate the same success with the ball having leaked 24 runs off his 2 overs as Punjab threw within the towel.
