Barinder Sran is an accidental cricketer, who switched from Boxing at the age of 17. When he burst onto the International scene in 2016, he did not have domestic numbers to show but was regarded highly by former cricketers like Yuvraj Singh and Rahul Dravid. The dearth of left-arm pacers in India is also one of the reason that he was fast-tracked to the national side. Sran did not make much of an impact in the games he represented India but has done well in IPL in the last few years.
