India is the only country present in today’s world which offers so much district and local leagues for upcoming youth generation kids in the game of cricket. The board of cricket council of India manages every player salaries, coaches and literally everything so much perfectly which helps the youngsters to come forward and to showcase their talent at national as well as at international level. 

As we all know, how much importance India gives to Indian premier League and this importance works when some new energy and talent is also a part of this league and plays some great knocks. Last year also, we saw emerging players like Devdut and Ishan who have the abilities to play some great knocks in front of international stars too. So it is quite obvious that, Indian premier League is one of the greatest league which helps to open the gates for many. So let’s have a look on a player biography, who haven’t played any international match till now but because of some district and local League, he is a part of IPL today. 


  1. Harishankar Reddy is an Indian cricketer, who plays for Andhra Pradesh cricket team at national level, he is not debuted till now. The player was born on 2 June in the year 1998 which simply signifies that he is 23 years old in today’s date. The player is an uncapped player who has been selected in the IPL and that too in his idol or in his favourite team. He has done extremely well performances at local and national level consecutively and no doubt he will continue to do that. 


 When it comes to the early life of Harishankar Reddy, as mentioned above he was born on 2nd June , 1998 . This 23 years boy have so much capabilities and some extra cricketing skills in his bowling which helps him to become a big man. The player was born in Rayachoty, which is located in Andhra Pradesh. He always wanted to make cricket as his passion since childhood only and today he has fulfilled his half dream. Harishankar is a right hand batsman and a right arm fast bowler who basically acts as a bowler in the team.

 The player plays for Andhra Pradesh state cricket team in zonal and T-20 leagues and was excellent in his debut innings. As the player was born in Andhra Pradesh, and that too in a village, so his Village and nearby villages doesn’t had proper cricket facilities which forced him and his family to move towards Vizianagaram in 2016 year. He enrolled himself at ACA academy ground. The player further improved his bowling skills and went to play under-19 cricket for Andhra Pradesh in the same year in 2016. He had excellent family support and he gave the best result he can to his family and is making his family proud today. 


Starting from a small village to playing for the state team of Andhra Pradesh, the player has came a lot in it. The player grew up in the Village, by playing tennis ball cricket with his fellow friends at that time. In 2012, when he was 14 , Harishankar went to kadapa Municipal ground where cricket trials for selection in the district level under 14 cricket team were going on. The player also gave his performance and tried his best in the trials and got selected for the summer camp in Kadapa in 2013. 

The player from there shifted all his focus and interest towards a professional cricketer. In 2018, Harishankar was included in the Andhra Pradesh squad for the Mustaq Ali tournament. On 11 January, 2018 Harishankar finally made the debut for his domestic cricket career and his debut innings will be most probably his one of the best dream innings , as he took four wickets in that match against Kerala, just by conceding 12 runs which was an awesome bowling spell by Harishankar Reddy.

 The player then played his first List -A match against vidarbha on 7 February, 2020 in that match also he performed well but he didn’t get many opportunities to prove his best in that match. The player’s dream came true when he was purchased by Chennai super kings in the auction of 2021 Indian premier League and not only this, but he is a great fan of Ms Dhoni. He got jersey number 46 by the franchise. The player didn’t get any chance to play in any match of IPL, but soon in future he’ll perform well for sure. Harishankar is a guy who always believed in himself and not only him but his family also supported him which shows the love and respect their family has and today he is  a big man in the field of cricket. 


 When it comes to the physical appearance of Harishankar Reddy, then this tall fast bowler and a hard hitting batsman too is fit in all the terms. He has black eye colour and black hair colour which suits him perfectly as per his personality. He is nearly five feet and ten inches tall but looks like a giant man of something six feet mainly because of his Gymming exercise and fitness. The tall height also helps the bowler to ball some good delivery. 


When it comes to the net worth of Harishankar Reddy, then it’s quite obvious that Harishankar Reddy is not able to earn more as compared to professional cricketers who play at international level. He earns only from national leagues like Vijay Hazare, Mustaq Ali and from Andhra Pradesh cricket Association which makes it not less but not that high. The player was purchased by Chennai super kings at a price of Rs 20 lakh which motivated him and all the players to perform his best in the season. 





*In a practice match before Indian premier League season, Harishankar made headlines by dismissing the legendary Ms. Dhoni. 

*He admires Bumrah as his idol and praises him a lot.
