Throughout his tenure in the IPL, Karn has established himself as a consistent player, notably achieving the remarkable feat of contributing to consecutive championship victories—first with Hyderabad in 2016, followed by Mumbai in 2017. Initially recruited by Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2013, he made an impressive debut season with 11 wickets. His prowess continued as he emerged as the second highest wicket-taker in 2014, securing 15 wickets, and maintained a respectable performance in 2015.

However, his form dipped in 2016. Subsequently, he joined Mumbai Indians for the 2017 season, where he clinched 13 wickets before being released for auction. Despite being sought after by Chennai Super Kings for his spin-bowling skills, Karn struggled to secure a regular spot in the squad. Despite his potential as a batsman, Karn couldn’t fully demonstrate his abilities throughout his IPL journey.

During the auction for the 2022 Indian Premier League tournament held in February 2022, he was acquired by the Royal Challengers Bangalore. In IPL 2023, he took 10 wickets in 7 matches and in 2024, RCB decided to retain him for a sum of 50 lakhs.
