Shardul has a knack of picking crucial wickets and breaking partnerships. During the India vs England T20I series in 2021, Shardul frequently picked up two wickets in an over. As a result, people jokingly named him Lord Thakur. He kept performing with both bat and ball over the next few months and this name gained popularity. As mentioned above, he performed both with the bat and the ball. He has made numerous important contributions all this while which helped him strengthen his case at the auction.
