The former Knight Riders wicketkeeper-batsman played a match-winning inning of 89 from 48 balls against the Chennai Super Kings in the final of IPL 2012 and won the maiden IPL trophy to the franchise. He was also awarded as the Man of the Match that night. Due to his inconsistent performances in the following years, he was released by the franchise ahead of the 2015 players’ auction.

He was then bought by the Bangalore based franchise as they were searching for an opener to pair up with Chris Gayle. However, just after two games, he was dropped from the Playing XI and the skipper promoted himself and took over the opening duties. Thereafter, he was benched for the remainder of the season and was released by the franchise.

In 39 matches he played in IPL, Bisla scored 798 runs at an average of 21 and with a strike rate of 113.68 with the help of 4 half-centuries. Currently, the 35-year-old is no near to an IPL contract and is representing Goa in the domestic circuit.
