Founded in 2008 by Lalit Modi, The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a professional 20-20 cricket league that was started in India, and the matches take place during March and May every year. Recently, IPL concluded the auction for its 12th season, which will begin in April.

Like every year, the teams have to choose from top players and few players from the state and district levels, which works as an excellent platform for them to make a name for themselves. For example, Shardul Thakur from Chennai Super Kings took India to the road of victory in yesterday’s match against the West Indies. He scored 17 off six balls and helped India to bag the third ODI match of the series.


A new beginning for the 18-year old – IPL News

Recently, Sunrisers Hyderabad bought Abdul Samad, an 18-year old hailing from Jammu and Kashmir in the IPL auction for Rs.20 lakhs. Abdul is the first player from the valley that was selected for IPL 2020 amid the tension because of the abrogation of Article 370.

Abdul’s father, Mohammad Farooq, who is a physical education teacher, was very happy for this opportunity that his son has received. He further added that IPL is a high level for any beginner, and reaching this level is an achievement for him.

Abdul is placed as the middle-order batsman who can also bowl if needed. He came into the spotlight for his consistent performance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 league, Vijay Hazare Trophy, and the ongoing Ranji Trophy Tournament. In one of the matches, the 18-year old hit 78 runs with ten fours and three sixes in the Ranji Trophy match.
