Harshal Patel is a right-arm medium bowler and a right-handed player, who played in the Under-19 Vinoo Mankad Trophy for Gujarat in 2008-09, capturing 23 wickets in seven matches of the season. His performances couldn’t catch the state selector’s eyes, so he moved on to Haryana for better prospects. Patel was also part of the 2010 Under-19 World Cup squad.
Patel has modeled himself around Glenn McGrath whom he admires for his consistent bowling. He was amongst three players who bagged a contract with Mumbai in Indian T20 league, in 2011 but did not manage to get a game.
His successful domestic trophy season earned him a contract with Bangalore for the fifth edition of the IPL in 2012 and did well enough to be bought back by the same team in 2014. Harshal’s career didn’t take off the way he would have liked to but he continued to be a part of Haryana team in domestic cricket.
After having a stint with Bangalore, he was bought by Delhi in 2018 but prior to the 14th edition of the Indian T20 League, Harshal Patel returned to Bangalore as he was traded by Delhi.

Harshal Patel made his debut in the 2012 IPL season and since then he has participated in 41 matches across seven seasons. Harshal has never quite made an impact to be a regular fixture in an IPL fixture but he has done enough to be in the squad for the next edition. Harshal picks wicket at a decent strike-rate but his problem has been his economy.
In the last year, playing for the Delhi franchise, he conceded runs at an economy of 9.54. And his average economy in IPL is 8.66. Harshal has to work on the economy rate to become a regular part of the Delhi franchise.
