The Punjab pacer Barinder Sran is looking for an international comeback. He was picked by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the IPL auction 2018 and he is looking this season as a platform for comeback.

He has been picked by the Punjab based franchise for Rs 2.20 crore. Sran has played for India in six ODIs and two T20Is.

The pacer has a good follow through and has impressed everyone with his bowling lately.

Talking to Sportstar on Tuesday, he said, “I am satisfied with the auction. If we play in Mohali, it will be an added advantage as it has been my home ground. I was fit before the Ranji Trophy and I played two or three games. But I found my rhythm from Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.”

Sran had picked eight wickets in four games. “The target was to be fit and bowl with the same rhythm where I left. There had been a gap of one-and-a-half years since I last played for India. I needed matches to be sure of my abilities and prove my fitness. Now that I am performing, I am confident of a good show in the IPL. It can help me bounce back,” he added.

India already has a strong bowling line up, but Sran thinks him being left-arm will give advantage. “My advantage is that I am a lefty; of course, I need to perform too,” he reasoned.

He also talks about his new variations, “the back of the hand slower delivery and the yorkers."
