Eleven players from Punjab have joined the ICL bandwagon over the last week. While seven players latched on earlier in the week, four more players made the jump just before the weekend.
The four include Amit Uniyal, medium-pacer Luv Ablish, left-arm spinner Bipul Sharma and leg-spinner Karanveer. While the first three are part of the Punjba State’s Ranji squad, Karanveer toured with India U-19 last year.
Interestingly, all of them are far from nearing the end of their careers. Uniyal has been a Punjab regular for seven years and, except for an average outing last year, has done well overall. Ablish was the highest wicket-taker for Punjab last season. Bipul Sharma was the pick of the Punjab bowlers in the North Zone one-day tournament and Karanveer is looked at as a great prospect.
