Karan Sharma Biography
Karn Sharma is a leg-spinning all-rounder from Uttar Pradesh. He was part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad during Indian Premier League (IPL) 2009 but did not play a single match. Sunrisers Hyderabad gave Karn his IPL debut in 2013. He impressed in his outings for the Hyderabad outfit, bowling well in tandem with senior leg-spinner Amit Mishra. Karn helped the Sunrisers reach the IPL playoffs in 2013, something which was not expected at the start of the season.
In domestic cricket, Karn had made his Ranji Trophy debut for Railways in 2007, and continues to play for them. His domestic numbers with the ball are good, and he is no mug with the bat either, having scored a hundred on First-Class debut.
Not a great spinner of the ball, Karn uses the googly sparingly, but his main strength lies in his relentless accuracy. After a good performance in the IPL 2014 and some encouraging outings for India A, he was picked for the one-day side for the tour of England.
