Anuj Rawat Profile

Domestic Career

Anuj Rawat made his first-class debut for Delhi against Assam on October 6, 2017. He made his mark in the first innings of the match itself by scoring 71 runs and was brilliant behind the stumps as well. In 2019-20, Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy Rawat played a brilliant knock of 88 runs against Saurashtra and proved his worth in the shortest format as well.

His first-class record is also impressive. Rawat has scored 925 runs so far in his 19 appearances. The youngster also has a good enough record in T20s and List A as well averaging a decent 26 and 35 respectively. His impressive performances in the domestic circuit also earned him an IPL contract with Rajasthan Royals. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the youngster goes on to play for the national team very soon.

Anuj Rawat IPL Career

Anuj Rawat was picked up by Rajasthan Royals ahead of the 2020 IPL Season on the basis of his performances in the U-19 and Domestic Circuit. The Royals picked him for INR 80 Lakhs in the player auction. He did not play a single game in the 2020 IPL due to the likes of Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson already present in the top order.

He finally got his opportunity in the 2021 IPL Season and made his debut against Sunrisers Hyderabad on 5th May 2021 but did not get the opportunity to bat as the top order performed brilliantly. Anuj Rawat is surely a player to watch out for the Rajasthan Royals in the coming years and the youngster will also look to make his mark on the big stage.
