profile

Hailing from the outskirts of Mumbai, Shardul Thakur is a right-arm medium pacer who got his first taste of first-class cricket for Mumbai in 2012-13. Known for his aggressive pace bowling, Thakur's breakthrough season came in 2014-15 where he claimed 48 wickets at 20.81 and rocked the bowling charts. Owing to all his success, Punjab picked him for the eighth edition of the Indian T20 League.


After a couple of successful domestic seasons, Thakur caught the attention of the selectors and was handed the chance to debut against Sri Lanka in the ODIs in 2017. Although he took one wicket in his first two matches, Shardul showed good potential to be taken along the squad for South Africa's tour in 2018. In the lone match he played there, Thakur did enough to stay on the fringes of being a mainstay in the team with a 4-wicket haul. He has been a part of the Indian T20I squad and the Indian selectors have shown faith in his abilities.


Thakur has also represented Pune (2017) and Chennai (2018) in the Indian T20 League where he was a crucial member of the bowling unit.
