Piyush Chawla, born in Aligarh on December 24, 1988, showcased his talent early by representing the India U-19 team at 15 and featuring in the Uttar Pradesh U-22 squad. Known for his deceptive googly, Chawla impressed with his performance against Pakistan in the 2006 U-19 WC final, securing figures of 4/8. Making his mark in domestic cricket, he debuted for Central Zone in the Duleep Trophy before earning a Test cap against England in March 2006, where he claimed his first international wicket by dismissing Andrew Flintoff. Despite his potential, Chawla has only played one more Test match since then.

He found more success in One-day cricket by perplexing the English middle-order with a variety of leg-spin deliveries during the 2007 Indian tour of England. Despite showing talent in both batting and bowling, he has not performed well with the bat. He is among the rare players to have won the World Cup in both T20 and ODI formats. However, his performances have been lacking. He was selected for national duty during England’s 2012 tour of India, playing in the final Test in Nagpur and subsequent T20Is. Since then, he has not been able to return to the Indian team but continues to play regularly in domestic cricket..

Interesting Fact: Piyush Chawla gained national recognition after dismissing Sachin Tendulkar with a googly during a Challenger Trophy match in the 2006 season.

IPL through the years

Piyush Chawla, one of the most successful bowlers in IPL history, has excelled while playing for Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders. Ranked third among the highest wicket-takers in IPL, he has taken 140 wickets in 144 matches. Piyush made his IPL debut with Kings XI Punjab, where he was purchased for $400,000 and proved to be a valuable asset by taking 17 wickets in his first season. He continued to perform consistently and was later acquired by KKR in 2014 after a bid of 4.25 crores.

Amidst a team rich in quality spin bowlers, Piyush has proven himself and serves as a flexible option in the bowling lineup. Despite not reaching his previous heights, his retention by the franchise through the ‘right to match’ in 2018 underscores his importance. Following an inconsistent 2019 season, KKR released him, only for CSK to acquire him at a surprising 6.75 crore INR. While surrounded by other spinners once more, the experienced leg-spinner should thrive in the favorable conditions of Chepauk.


Chawla was just 16 when he took the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar in a domestic match. Chawla considers the wicket to be the most cherished wicket. Chawla has 17 years 75 days when he first played for India in the test format and became the second youngest player to play for India after Sachin Tendulkar. He says his shorter height has always been a boon rather than a curse for him. It, according to Chawla, gives him an enough space to flight the ball, which is quite useful for the spin bowlers.
