Born and brought up in a rather small town of Uttar Pradesh, Saurabh Kumar was furious about sports from the earliest phase of his life. Many people do not know that he was once employed in the Indian Air Force and took fitness very seriously.
However, later he pulled back from this direction and decided to move his career in the direction of cricket.
His career saw its sunrise on 2016, 8th January when his T20 debut was made in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. To everybody’s surprise, he picked out the most wickets and gained recognition from that point onwards. Further, he was also an important player in the 2017- 2018 Ranji Trophy, Uttar Pradesh.
As mentioned earlier, Rising Pune Supergiants roped him for the IPL season of 2017 for 10 lakhs. He did not get the fortunate chance to play in any match, but marked his talent in the following Duleep Trophy, by being the highest wicket taker.
Further, for about 65 runs in a match, Kumar broke all the records by taking 14 wickets in the Ranji Trophy match against Haryana. Following this, he was also selected in the India Blue Team squad for the Duleep Trophy in 2019-2020.
His primary achievement was getting featured as one of the top five (net) bowlers in India’s test matches against England in 2021, month of January. Conclusively, Saurabh Kumar was auctioned by Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League season of 2021 for 20 lakhs. This big break for him is sure to bring him the best of all opportunities and fortune.
Although he has not yet made an international debut, we expect him to make one soon, given his amazing performance in the previous matches.
Saurabh can be seen as having a well built physical stature, perfectly appropriate for a sporty profession. He is very regular in his fitness regime and tries to follow a healthy diet for a healthy mind.
He believes in giving his best performance on field, and pulls all the strings for implementing this belief.
