Sandeep Sharma can be termed as one of the most underrated swing bowlers who have a stellar IPL career but never had a genuine stint with the national team. His international debut was against Zimbabwe in a T20 series of 2015. He was only lucky to feature in just two T20 matches and then waiting at the lobby ever since. Still a vital part of the RR and Punjab state team, the Punjabi medium pacer is only 29 and his IPL performances are quite promising for the last few seasons. In this blog, Sandeep Sharma’s career, stats, wife, social media, etc.

Sandeep Sharma: Early Career

Sandeep Sharma | KreedOn

Started as a batsman, Sandeep switched as a swing bowler during the school days after his coach Kamaljeet Singh’s advice. As a budding fast-medium bowler, the boy from Patiala was nothing but a prodigy. Known for his accuracy and exceptional ability to produce conventional swingers, Sandeep was named to the Indian squad for the Under-19 World Cup 2010 held in New Zealand. He was just 16 then. Although people noticed the young bowler in that tournament, Sandeep Sharma’s breakout event was the 2012 U19 World Cup in Australia where the Indian junior team clinched the title under the captaincy of Unmukt Chand.

There was no surprise when Sandeep was picked by KXIP in the auction ahead of IPL 2013 because he was the joint leading wicket taker for India in the U19 World Cup campaign with 12 wickets and bagged four of them in the final against the hosts Australia itself. In the 2012-2013 Ranji campaign, Sandeep was on fiery form taking 42 wickets from 9 matches with an impressive average of 19.41. In the same year, he became Punjab’s leading wicket-taker in the Vijay Hazare Trophy scalping 10 from 6 matches. His arrival to the IPL was inevitable after such great performances.

Sandeep Sharma, then and now, has been the new ball bowler who could take early wickets with his swing bowling. Sandeep was never too bad to be dropped from the squad at any point of his IPL career. Every time he had a bad match, he would return in the very next match with a peach of a performance. In his debut season, Sandeep got only 4 matches to play for KXIP and clinched eight wickets from them. That was the lowest wicket tally in any IPL season he had played. In fact, Sandeep has never ended an IPL season without taking at least 12 wickets. He became a routine bowler for KXIP during his span of 2013-2017 with 71 wickets from 56 matches. 2018 IPL auction was a mega auction where franchises could only hold on to three players before the auction. 

In March 2023, Rajasthan Royals bought Sandeep Sharma for the 2023 IPL as a replacement for the injured Prasidh Krishna, after being the unsold player in the 2023 IPL auction.

What’s next?

In the 2021 IPL season, Sandeep Sharma only played 3 matches but couldn’t make a serious impact so far. In IPL 2023, he played a crucial role against CSK and bowled brilliantly in the last over when MS Dhoni on crease. There is no doubt about the potential Sandeep has and to dismiss a player like Virat Kohli 7 times in IPL, it’s not everyone’s piece of cake. With players like Bumrah, Natarajan, Siraj, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar already donning the Indian jersey across formats, Sandeep’s only hope to get back to the blues is to deliver a superb season in IPL 2023. Sandeep’s talent has been established in the past years through IPL but he just needs that one good season to reach the zenith of his career.
