Srinagar, October 18: Abdul Samad Sunday became the first Jammu and Kashmir cricketer to play five matches in a single Indian Premier League season.

Samad, who was bought at 20 lakh INR, made a good impression in his very first match and then did even better in the third one, hitting India’s prime pacer, Jasprit Bumrah, a couple of big shots.

He, however, was dropped from the playing XI following a not-so-decent performance against Kings XI Punjab, wherein he conceded a few too many in his only over while also failed to make an impact with the bat.

The teenager though made a comeback to the SRH playing XI against Kolkata Knight Riders this afternoon. He is the fifth J&K cricketer to fetch an IPL contract and only third to appear in the playing XI.

Prior to him, Parvez Rasool had played four matches in 2016 season before losing his place from the cash-rich league. While Rasikh played a solitary match in 2019 season.
