Sakariya hails from a village called Vartej located 180 km from Rajkot in the state of Gujarat. Sheldon Jackson, a senior player in the Saurashtra team, bought him a new shoe and helped him train. Only then did Sakariya get the chance to go to the MRF Pace Foundation. Jackson and Sakariya then became close friends.
Sakariya's brother committed suicide when he was playing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021. Sakariya was very close to his brother and keeping this in mind, Rajasthan Royals gifted him a jersey which has initials of his late brother 'R.K' imprinted on it. The jersey also has a message written on it that says, "Miss you bro".
Sakariya made his List A debut for Saurashtra in the 2017–18 Vijay Hazare Trophy on 22 February 2018.

He made his Twenty20 debut for Saurashtra in the 2018–19 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy on 21 February 2019. In February 2021, Sakariya was bought by the Rajasthan Royals for 1.2 crores in the IPL auction ahead of the 2021 Indian Premier League. 
In June 2021, Sakariya was named in India's One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) squads for their series against Sri Lanka.
