Siddarth Kaul (cricketer) Girlfriend, Weight, Height, Age, Records and More

By Yash Mittal

Siddarth Kaul
(Indian Cricketer)

A tall hit-the-deck bowler, Siddarth Kaul burst onto the scene when he took a fifer in his maiden Ranji Trophy game back in 2007-08 season. The performances in the Ranji Trophy were followed by his 10 scalps; the joint highest for India, but it was the ‘slide on the turf’ celebration after winning the title that became synonymous with the arm-band clad Punjab speedster. Constant injuries  post the 2008 World Cup put the lancy fast-bowler on the sidelines till 2012 but Kaul kept pegging away in the domestic circuit for Punjab. With 182 wickets in 63 First-class games, Kaul has been a constant performer at the domestic level, but his big moment eventually came during the 2018 IPL. The right-hand bowler rose from the shadows of Bhuvneshwar Kumar to spearhead the SRH attack. With 21 scalps, it was only a matter of time before selectors rewarded the Punjab speedster for his performances; and Kaul finally realized his dream when he was named into India’s limited-overs squad for the tour of the UK in early June this year.

Records
  • A member of the 2008 U-19 World Cup winning side under Kohli, Kaul had a pivotal role to play in India’s title winning heist. With an average of 15, Kaul was the joint leading wicket-taker for the Men in Blue with ten wickets in five matches to his name alongside Ravindra Jadeja.

  • After being overshadowed by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the initial years of Kaul’s stint at SRH, the vile fast-bowler with a plethora of tricks at his disposal finally came into his own in the 2018 season. He finished with 21 wickets in the tournament and also the joint highest wicket-taker for his franchise that went on to play the finals against CSK.

Career Turning Point: NA
  • Kaul turning-point was the 2018 IPL season. The vile fast-bowler showed admirable control and with a plethora of tricks at his disposal- the most revered ‘knuckle-ball’ and many other, Kaul proceeded to spearhead the SRH’s bowling attack in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
