Varun first dismissed Rishabh Pant and then removed Shimron Hetmyer to stand on the cusp of taking a hat-trick. Although he didn’t pick a hat-trick, the spinner went on to dismiss Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel and Marcus Stoinis.

Tamil Nadu spinner Varun earned the highest bid among uncapped Indian players at the IPL 2020 auction. KKR bought him for Rs 4 crore and he surely proved why.
