About

Navdeep Saini is one of the brightest fast bowling prospects in India at the moment. He can quite comfortably clock in excess of 140 kmph on the speed gun. He was the star of Delhi's campaign as they reached the Ranji Trophy final in 2017-18. 34 wickets in 8 games is a brilliant return for someone so young and who has yet to make the grade at International level. His highlight of the Ranji Trophy campaign actually was in partnership with RCB teammate Kulwant Khejroliya as the duo's red hot pace ripped apart Bengal in the semi-final, giving their team Delhi a marauding innings win!

In Saini, we have an excellent new ball bowler who can swing the ball at genuine pace. He's been an exemplary bowler in red ball cricket and is constantly evolving in ODIs and T20s, with his improved showings reflecting in Delhi's performances. He was chosen as a part of a 4 man unit to tour South Africa in January 2018, as a practice bowler in order to prepare Team India for difficult pitches.

He's performed impressively over the past 2 seasons and his rising stock has placed him on the brink of Team India selection. It is no surprise then that RCB got engaged into a bidding war to prise him away for INR 3 Crores in the VIVO IPL Auction 2018.
