Team India call-up on horizon for Abhishek Sharma? It’s just a matter of time, feels CSK legend

Abhishek has been on a roll this IPL season, scoring 467 runs at an average of over 38 and a strike rate of 209 in 13 games.

After the T20 World Cup, Abhishek Sharma will undoubtedly be a member of the Indian squad, according to Ambati Rayudu, who hopes the SRH opener will carry over his selfless attitude to the national squad as well. On Sunday, May 19, Abhishek led SRH to victory over PBKS, making him the star of the show once more. The Indian opener led SRH by scoring 66 off just 28 balls as SRH won the match by four wickets.

Rayudu impressed with Abhishek Sharma’s selflessness

I’ve had a chat with him in Hyderabad just a couple of days back, and I asked him the same question. What do you think of getting big scores? He said, I’m just hitting at the ball and just trying to be positive and hitting every ball for four or six, that is, I feel him being absolutely selfless for the team, it’s so easy when you are in such kind of a form to just take it, take it back to take it easy for a couple of balls and then build a big innings and score a 100,” Rayudu said on Star Sports.

But he is doing it for the team and you need to appreciate a player like that. Very rarely, you have in your Indian setup for Indian players who has this mindset of playing for the team and not thinking about his own self, and that’s a great attribute to have. Going forward, I can’t see him not being in the Indian team after the World Cup, so just hope, hope that he continues the same mindset going into the Indian team and when he wears the blue jersey as well, I thought that he just plays the way he has been playing,” Rayudu added.

Unstoppable Abhishek

Abhishek was on a roll on Sunday, overtaking Virat Kohli for most sixes hit by a batter in a single IPL season. He hit 41 sixes so far in the tournament. Abhishek has scored 467 runs at an average of over 38 and a strike rate of 209 in 13 games. He has already scored three fifties this season.
