Lukman Meriwala: A Brief Biography

Lukman Meriwala is one of the rags to riches stories that IPL produces each year. From being a welder to a fast bowler, the youngster from Baroda had to go through a lot of hardships before earning an IPL contract.


Career


Domestic career


Meriwala made his List A debut for Baroda in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in February 2013 against a strong Mumbai side. He was the leading wicket-taker for his side in the tournament. Cut to 2021, the left-arm fast medium pacer has played 36 List A matches and picked 47 wickets at an average of 26.95. This format remains his weakest among the three.

After a successful List A debut series, he was given the Baroda T20 cap next month for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He played just 3 games in the tournament and picked 2 wickets. The following year, he became the leading wicket-taker in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy season and took Baroda to a title victory. In 43 bowling innings, Meriwala has 72 T20 wickets at an average of just 14.54 and a brilliant economy rate of 6.72. He has also taken 3 five-wicket hauls with his best figures being 5/8.


It took the Baroda seamer four years after his shorter format debuts to earn a First Class call. He got to play his first multi-day game for Baroda in November 2017 in a Ranji Trophy encounter against Madhya Pradesh. In 17 First Class games, Meriwala has picked 59 wickets including 3 fifers and a 10-wicket haul at an average of 20.77.


IPL career


Lukman Meriwala has earned an IPL contract with the Delhi Capitals Team of INR 20 lakhs for IPL 2021.

Background


As a welder, Meriwala believed that cricket is not his cup of tea after failing to get into professional cricket. His resilience made him work hard on his bowling and earn a place in all three formats of the Baroda side. His numbers, especially in the T20 and First Class formats, reflect on his impact in the side and an IPL contract is not a surprise.
