Dhawal Kulkarni is one of the underrated medium-fast bowlers of this era. The 33-year-old has featured in 92 games in the lucrative Indian Premier League. He has taken 86 wickets in the tournament. The pacer was last seen donning the Mumbai Indians’ outfit back in IPL 2020 season.
Since then, he didn’t play the IPL. In fact, he enrolled himself at the mega auction for a base price of Rs 75 lakhs. Nonetheless, he failed to attract the bidders in the mega auction in Bengaluru. In the end, he went unsold at the auction.
The Mumbai-born pacer has decided to sign up as a commentator for the ongoing season of the IPL. He was also seen plying his trade a commentator for Mumbai Indians’ matches.
