The Punjab spinner made it to headlines back in 2018 for Mumbai Indians when he troubled the batters with his accurate leg-spin. He was bought by the Mumbai franchise for his base price of INR 20 Lakhs and was retained in 2019 for the same amount.

He played just 3 games for MI in 2019 and was replaced by Rahul Chahar and since then he is out of the team.
