One Sharma gone, other takes the stride!

Rohit Sharma, who led the Indian team to their second T20 World Cup trophy and is known for hitting giant sixes, has now decided to step down. Meanwhile, another Sharma, Abhishek Sharma, destroyed the Zimbabwean bowling lineup in the second T20 game.

Sharma had an outstanding IPL 2024 for Sunrisers Hyderabad, where he single-handedly played many impressive innings for the franchise. In 16 games, he scored 484 runs with an amazing strike rate of 204.22. That season was the reason why he earned India’s cap. It will be interesting to see how many sixes he can hit for the Men in Blue in T20Is.
