Mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy had a tremendous season for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. The right-armer bowled superbly throughout the tournament and puzzled some of the most high-quality batsmen belonging to different franchises.
The leg-spinner played 13 matches for the Knight Riders in which he grabbed 17 wickets, which includes the only five-wicket haul of the 2020 edition. Varun picked up a five-for against Delhi Capitals (DC) during the league stage.
Due to his outstanding performance with the white leather, Varun was selected in India’s T20I squad for Australia tour. However, the Tamil Nadu bowler had to pull out of the tour after suffering a shoulder injury.
