After watching the KKR vs RCB match on 6th April 2023, the only question in the mind of many cricket fans is who is Suyash Sharma?
Here’s everything you need to know about KKR’s new mystery spinner, Suyash Sharma, who came out as an impact player against RCB in IPL 2023, helping his team KKR win by a huge margin.
Last 6th April, in the 9th match of Indian Premier League KKR vs RCB, Suyash Sharma entered the field as an impact player instead of KKR’s player Venkatesh Iyer. The 19-year-old finished the game with figures of 3/30 from his four overs and had a dream debut in the world’s biggest T20 league.
The spinner, who came in as an impact player in the second innings, took the wickets of Dinesh Karthik, Anuj Rawat and Karn Sharma to bring RCB to its knees and help his team KKR win by a huge margin of 81 runs.
Sharma has been brought into the KKR team from the TATA IPL 2023 auction in December 2022 at his base price of Rs 20 lakhs. In an interview with Revsportz, the 19-year-old from Delhi revealed that he started playing cricket as a batsman but later shifted to leg spin as he wanted to try something unique.
Many were surprised to see the performance of this young leg spinner that day because surprisingly he had no experience of playing professional cricket. He had not played a single List-A, First Class or domestic T20 before this and was picked up in the KKR squad after playing for the Delhi Under-25 team.

After the match, KKR head coach Chandrakant Pandit said about Suyash Sharma, “We saw him in trial matches and were extremely happy with the way he bowled. He’s quick through the air, difficult to pick. He’s inexperienced but shows a very good attitude”.
KKR’s new captain Nitish Rana also said, “Suyash is a confident young man and he has belief in himself. He made his chance count and it was great to see him bowl that way”.
