2 IPL winners who are net bowlers in IPL 2024

In recent years, franchises have been going for experienced net bowlers. Firstly, this would improve the quality of the practice sessions. Next up, if there is an injury situation, these players would be ready and available to join the squad. Mohit Sharma was a net bowler for Gujarat Titans in IPL 2022. He was later picked by the team in IPL 2023 and he delivered a memorable performance to help GT reach the finals. He is one of the many examples in this regard. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of two IPL winners who are net bowlers in IPL 2024.

1) Kanishk Seth (CSK – 2018) – Net bowler for Kolkata Knight Riders

A left-arm pacer, Kanishk Seth can also do a decent job with the bat. He represents the West Bengal side in the Indian domestic competitions. At IPL 2018 Auctions, he was picked up by CSK. However, he did not get a single game. Nevertheless, he was a part of the title-winning squad.

Since then, he has not been able to get a chance in the IPL. However, on the back of his consistency in the domestic circuit, he has got a chance as a net bowler for KKR. If he does well, he could get an opportunity in the future seasons.


2) Kulwant Khejroliya (MI – 2017) – Net bowler for Chennai Super Kings

Kulwant Khejroliya is one of the IPL winners who are net bowlers in IPL 2024. In 2017, he was a part of the Mumbai Indians setup. That year, MI defeated RPS in the finals to win the trophy. Kulwant became an IPL winner for the first time in that edition.
Later, he played for teams such as RCB and KKR. However, he could not cement his place in any of the IPL XIs. In the recent auctions, he went unsold. That said, he has got a chance as a net bowler at CSK. If he does well and impresses the likes of MS Dhoni, he could get a contract in the future.
