In the 13th season of the Indian Premier League, Varun Chakraborty for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) impressed with his spin bowling.

He bowled quite well this season, due to his brilliant performance, Kuldeep Yadav had to sit on the bench. 29-year-old Varun also scored runs and 17 wickets at an economy rate of 6.84. Varun took five wickets for 20 against Delhi Capitals, which is also the best bowling figure of IPL 2020. It was on the basis of his good performance in IPL 2020 that he got a place in Team India for the T20 series against Australia.
According to the news of the Indian Express, Varun has a labrum tier in his shoulder, which may cause him to have trouble throwing the ball. According to the report, Varun already had this injury, but it increased during the IPL. Varun was declared fit in the report submitted by the Indian team physio Nitin Patel before selecting the T20 team to the selectors. The selectors will now have to take a final decision regarding Varun. A BCCI official told The Indian Express, ‘The selectors did not know about his (Varun’s) injury. Now it depends on the selectors whether they keep Varun in the team for the tour of Australia or not.
