The right-handed batsman made his first-class debut for Punjab in 2011-12 but made his mark only a couple of seasons later, with half-centuries against Vidarbha and Karnataka, and a match winning 187 against Jharkhand in the Ranji Trophy.

Vohra debuted in the IPL in April 2013 as a player for Kings XI and impressed with an unbeaten 43 runs off 26 balls. He made 67 runs in 2014 IPL final and his 129 runs parternership with Wriddhiman Saha insured that Kings XI Punjab made 199 runs in 20 overs. On April 04, 2017, he hit a stunning knock of 95 runs off just 50 balls (which included 9 fours and 5 sixes) against the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
