Karan Sharma is an Indian all-rounder who plays for Uttar Pradesh in domestic cricket. Born on 31 October 1998, Karan is a burgeoning talent in the cricketing circles, who made his First Class debut in a match against Vidarbha in the Ranji Trophy 2021-22.

The right-hander who bowls off-break made his T20 and List A debuts in the 2020-21 editions of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy respectively. He captains Uttar Pradesh across all formats in domestic cricket.
In his debut First Class game against Vidarbha, Karan was dismissed for a score of 2 in the first innings but scored a gritty 26 in the second innings to take his team’s tally to 280/6 to draw the outing. As far as his List A onslaughts are concerned, the middle-order batter had a mediocre run in Vijay Hazare Trophy 2020-21, as he could amass only 228 runs across 8 innings while averaging 28.12. He churned out almost similar numbers during the 2021-22 edition of the tournament, but it’s his heroics in the T20s which have garnered him a terrific reputation in the cricketing circles.
In the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2020-21, the right-hander scored the bulk of runs for Uttar Pradesh (168) while striking at a jaw-dropping rate of 163.10 and maintaining an average of 42.00 throughout. The fearless striker that he is, Karan had a notable run in 2021-22 as well, where he finished with second-most runs for his side while smashing 2 fifty-plus totals. On account of terrific runs in two back-to-back editions of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, the hard-hitting Delhi-born landed himself an opportunity with the Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2022 auction.
In the IPL 2022 auction, Karan was handed his maiden IPL contract by the Lucknow Super Giants at his base price of 20 lakhs. A side that boasts of some of the best T20 stars in the world, Karan’s cricketing prowess is bound to rise exponentially with each passing day in the power-packed tournament.
