Deepak Hooda made his Indian Premier League debut with the Rajasthan Royals. The youngster, who has established a reputation of being a powerful striker of the cricket ball, has been in the know for the Sunrisers of late. His gentle off-spinners and hard-hitting lower down the order has been recognised and the franchise sees some potential in the youngster. After plying his trade for RR, SRH and Punjab Kings, Hooda, who recently made his Team India debut, has joined LSG for INR 5.75 Crore. He has a reputation of successfully finishing the innings with the bat and can quickly help recover the team in case of early wickets. If he fires at the right time, the LSG batting unit will be a settled one in the 2022 season.
