By Kashif Sheikh

Local T20 leagues have unearthed some sensational talents of late. Tamil Nadu Premier League proudly presents one such talent who has stormed his way to the IPL in almost no time. Born in the beautiful town of Bidar in Karnataka, Varun Chakravarthy has been one of the very few bowlers with those magical leg-breaks in the modern day arena. The price tag of INR 8.4 Crore/year for that magic can still be considered a bargain. Come IPL 2019 and the world will get to see the magical leg-breaks, which once the king of spin, Shane Warne, used to unleash, for one more time.

Career Turning Point: Varun Chakravarthy began his cricket career as a wicket-keeper aged just 13. By the time he turned 17, he lost his interest in Cricket and took up Architecture. After working for two years as an architect, Varun decided it was time to return to Cricket. He returned to cricket as a fast bowler, but had his knee broken and had to stay out for over 6 months. This time he returned as a spinner with seven variations under his sleeve. The biggest turning point of his career though came in 2018, when he joined Siachem Madurai Panthers in the Tamil Nadu Premier League. He picked up nine wickets from ten matches with a dot percentage of over 50%. He followed that up with a successful stint in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018-19 for Tamil Nadu, picking up 22 wickets in just nine games.
