Punjab Kings purchased Shardul Thakur in the IPL 2015 player auction. However, he played just 1 game for the franchise. After that, he went on to play for Rising Pune Supergiant where he took 11 wickets in 12 games. He was then purchased by Chennai Super Kings for INR 2.6 crore at the IPL 2018 auction.

Shardul Thakur has improved his batting and bowling recently. In the Border Gavaskar Trophy series against Australia, he looked like a different player on the whole as he delivered the much-needed amends with the bat and with the ball.

Thakur may not have scored runs in the last season of the IPL but he delivered the goods with the ball by taking 10 wickets in 9 games. However, it is certain that in the upcoming season, CSK will see a different version of Shardul Thakur.
