New Delhi: IOS Sports and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. – one of India’s leading sports management organizations, today announced that it has on-boarded captain of Uttar Pradesh (UP) cricket team and Lucknow Super Giants cricketer Karan Sharma, into their growing bouquet of sporting talent. The 23-year-old all-rounder, recently scored his first Ranji Trophy century against Maharashtra in a winning cause.
Karan had his breakthrough moment at the 2019 C.K. Naidu Trophy, where he scored 1100+ runs, helping him clinch a spot in the senior state team. The innings of 116 against Maharashtra, ensured UP a berth in the Ranji quarter finals.
Delighted at the association with IOS, Karan said, “IOS sports have always aimed at supporting and doing the best for young athletes. I still have a long journey ahead of me and I look forward to having a smooth sailing journey with the support of the team at IOS Sports along the way.”
The right-handed batsman also made his T20 debut last year for his state in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and is all set to represent Lucknow Super Giants in their first ever Indian Premier League season at the end of this month.
Neerav Tomar, Managing Director & CEO, IOS Sports and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd, also expressed his views on the association saying, “Karan is a very talented cricketer and still very young at 23. He has not only proven himself while batting but has maintained a good record when it comes to taking wickets with his off-spin bowling. We believe in him and are sure that he is going to do great things in the world of cricket. We are excited to welcome him to our sporting family of young athletes and we aim to do our best to help him grow as a cricketer.”
