|Bowls||Right-arm leg spin|
|DOB||24 December 1988|
A leg-spinner from Aligarh, Piyush Chawla first came to the fore when he got past the defense of Sachin Tendulkar with a googly in a Challenger Series match several years ago. In his early days, Chawla was an orthodox leg-spinner. However, he bowls much flatter these days and ends up bowling quite a few long hops in the process. A lower-order batsman, Chawla scores handy runs consistently. In the 2014 IPL Player Auction, KKR doled out a whopping 4.25 crores to procure his services. Chawla has put up notable performances for the Knight Riders over the past couple of years with his tidy leg-spinners and handy lower order contributions with the bat. His most notable performance came in the final of the 2014 IPL edition when he hit the winning runs keeping his calm in the final overs of the match to lead his side to the title.
