IPL 2021 – Harpreet Brar: RCB’s wrecker-in-chief and rising star

On Friday, left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar stunned not just the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) camp, but also everyone who was watching the Punjab Kings (PBKS) vs RCB match in the Indian Premier League (IPL).  

Brar cleaned up Kohli to pick up his first wicket in IPL. The left-arm spinner then beat the defense of Glenn Maxwell and castled him on the very next delivery. In his next over, Brar got de Villiers to hit one straight into the hands of KL Rahul at short extra cover. He finished with figures of three for 19.

About Harpreet Brar:

A left-arm spinner and a hard-hitting lower-order batter, Brar hails from Moga, a small city in Punjab. It is also the hometown of Harmanpreet Kaur. Brar played age-group cricket and several club competitions in Punjab before he was picked by Kings XI Punjab in the 2019 IPL auction for his base price of INR 20 lakh at the age of 23.

When he was playing at the Under-23 level in 2018, Brar knew time was running out for him. He had already appeared in two trials for the Mumbai Indians but couldn’t make the cut.

Way to IPL:

It was then that Punjab’s Gurkeerat Singh made Brar represent a Mohali district team where Brar shone with his performances, even though he didn’t have enough money to buy new bats at times. Gurkeerat helped him with that as well.

He was handed an IPL contract by the Punjab franchise in November 2018 for the 2019 season.

Brar with the bat:

Brar first batted with his captain KL Rahul to finish on an unbeaten 25 from 17. He has scored 18 runs off five balls against Harshal Patel.

My first IPL wicket is Virat paaji’s wicket so I was very happy when I got that,” Brar said after receiving his Player-of-the-Match award at the presentation.

Once you get one wicket, the mentality changes a bit. You get confidence that you’re landing the ball nicely. So I got the flow and more wickets“-he added.
