He has enjoyed more success in the domestic Twenty format, having played eight games, picking up 14 wickets with a best haul of 4 for 24.

He also took 7/79 and 4/72 against Madhya Pradesh at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore in Ranji Trophy 2012–13, but in spite of that his side lost the match by 138 runs. It included a hat-trick in the 1st innings to wipe out the tail. He debuted in Test Cricket against west indies at Eden Gardens and took nine wickets.

After sitting on the bench for the first 3 matches, he was given chance in the fourth match in which he took 3 wickets.
