Every year lots of players get selected in IPL with the thought of being getting fame and being in the eye of selectors. For some domestic players it works but for some, it doesn’t. Varun Aaron is one such player who remained unsold in this year’s auction. Aaron has been a part of RCB for few years and had given a considerable performance with pace.

Aaron when asked said that he was in shock when he saw that he wasn’t selected but later took it as a blessing in disguise as he wanted to play in county cricket for this year to strengthen his bowling performance. he also said that he wanted to be out of IPL himself this year but it was his friends and management team who pushed him for it.

“I was not really thinking about whether I’d be picked or not in the IPL auction. “It was more a case of which team is going to pick me. But when it didn’t happen, it was a shocker for sure.When we talk after six months, then I can tell you that it’s the best thing to have happened to me. I really feel this might be the turning point,”  Varun said.

“This year what happened is by default. County cricket is really competitive. I know that after I come out of this, what I’m bowling now is going to be maximized by a big margin,” he concluded.

Aaron is eyeing to play for English County side Leicestershire in the 2018 County Championship. Earlier many Indian players during their downtime have taken to county championship for shaping up the career and chances. Example being Indian spinner Ashwin.

Varun Aaron has been suffering from an injury which affected his stint last year and he hopes no such thing happens. With India racing to play World Cup in 2011 in England, a good performance of pace there would bring Aaron in limelight. Aaron debuted for the national side in 2011 but only played a few matches.
