‘It is about getting an opportunity’

Since 2017, Gurkeerat Singh has earned only five caps in the IPL. In the 2017 season, Gurkeerat played two matches for Kings XI Punjab, but didn’t get to bowl or bat in either outing. Last year, he was selected by Delhi Daredevils for ₹75 lakh, but didn’t get a game.

Heading into Saturday’s clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad, the all-rounder had featured in two matches for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). These are surprisingly low numbers for a talented cricketer who has played three T20Is.

He underlined his value with a crucial 48-ball 65 to guide RCB to a four-wicket win.

“It is about getting an opportunity. I got the chance to play in the IPL after almost two years, and I wanted to deliver for my team. Whenever you go in to bat, you have to prove yourself,” Gurkeerat said.
