Solanki made his List A debut on 25 February 2021, for Mumbai in the 2020–21 Vijay Hazare Trophy. He made his Twenty20 debut on 9 November 2021, for Mumbai in the 2021–22 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. In February 2022 he was picked up by CSK in the mega auction.

Solanki was roped in for 1.20 crores. He played two games for his franchise picking up just two wickets. Solanki has taken 21 wickets in 9 List A matches so far in his career. With all the franchises having at least good Indian spinner in their ranks, the youngster would have found it difficult to find a franchise.
