Parvinder Awana (born 19 July 1986) is an Indian first-class cricketer who plays for Delhi in domestic cricket.[1] He is a right-arm medium pace bowler. He is currently a part of Kings XI Punjab squad in the Indian Premier League.[2]

He was picked in the national squad for the fourth Test against England and made his Twenty20 International debut against the touring English side on 21 December 2012.[3]

Domestic career[edit]

Awana made his first-class debut for Delhi against Himachal Pradesh in 2007. He played five games that season and picked up 12 wickets. He impressed in the next season, picking up 28 wickets from 7 matches at an average of 24. He also got two five-wicket hauls and a ten-for that season. He was dropped from the team during the 2010/11 Ranji Trophy as he failed to get enough wickets. However, he had a highly impressive first-class season in 2011/12. He had 35 scalps to his name from just 7 matches at an average of 25, picking three five-fors. His good bowling was rewarded as he was selected to play for North Zone in the 2011/12 Deodhar Trophy. He continued his brilliant bowling in the one-day format too, as he got figures of 6/49 against Central Zone in the only match he played that tournament before joining the Kings XI Punjab squad for IPL 2012.

International career[edit]

He was picked in the national squad for the fourth Test against England and made his Twenty20 International debut against the touring English side in December 2012.[4]
