STATE TIMES NEWS

JAMMU: J&K’s talented southpaw, Vivrant Sharma was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs 2.60 crores, while speedsters Yudhvir Singh Charak and not much known Avinash Singh Manhas went to Lucknow Supergiants and  Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for 20 lakhs and 60 lakhs respectively in the IPL Auction 2023 held at Kochi on Friday.

The Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad were involved in the bidding war for Vivrant and finally SRH bought him for 2.60 crore.

Left-handed explosive  opening batsman Vivrant also bowls leg-breaks. 

A student of JK Public School Kunjwani, All-rounder Vivrant Sharma, as batsman, has a credit of 550 runs with a ton, while 21 wickets as a right-arm leg spinner in his first class career.

Talented  Vivrant Sharma, after leading J&K as a skipper in Under-23 Col CK Naidu Trophy, made debut in J&K cricket team for Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 (One-day tournament).

Vivrant began playing cricket following into the footsteps of his elder brother Vikrant who played club cricket, as per a report in the Indian Express.

Initially, he used to bat right-handed but inspired by his brother, he then switched to left-handed batting at the age of 12.

Vivrant has played nine T20 matches so far and has scored 191 runs at a strike-rate of 128.18 including two half-centuries.

It is pertinent to mention here that Vivrant was recommended for trials by Abdul Samad, who had also suggested Umran Malik’s name to the franchise last year. Avinash Singh Manhas, though has yet to represent the State/UT at the national scene, yet is learnt to be genuinely quick, who can hurl the ball around 150 kms per hour, while Yudhvir Singh has already represented Mumbai Indians in IPL and has now been bought by Lucknow Supergiants for Rs 20 lakhs.
