Abhishek Sharma: In the second T20 match being played between India and Zimbabwe, Abhishek Sharma has impressed everyone with his batting. This young batsman from Punjab, who was out for zero in his debut match, has registered his name in the pages of history by scoring a century in just 46 balls. Abhishek has now become the fourth fastest T20 International century for India and also the Indian player to score a T20I century in the least number of innings. His success is undoubtedly the result of his years of hard work, but Abhishek himself gives the credit of his success to three people without whose guidance it was impossible for him to reach this position. Who are those 3 legends? Let’s find out.

Abhishek’s father is his coach

Let us tell you that Abhishek Sharma’s father Rajkumar Sharma is also a former cricketer himself. He was a left-arm spin bowler and has played domestic cricket for Punjab. Rajkumar Sharma is also Abhishek’s coach and has taught him the nuances of cricket since childhood. Abhishek said, “I work hard on my batting. But, during this time, I also work on my bowling with my father. Therefore, it is important to mention him after whatever I did in the match because he also has a role behind it.”

Abhishek Sharma is the disciple of Yuvraj Singh

It is worth noting that Abhishek Sharma is a disciple of Yuvraj Singh. He has played domestic cricket for Punjab. Abhishek Sharma has become a hard hitting batsman under Yuvi’s mentorship. Abhishek has been a part of the 2018 Under-19 World Cup team. He played explosively for Sunrisers Hyderabad in this season of IPL. Abhishek scored 484 runs in 16 matches at an average of 32.27 and a strike rate of 204.22. Many questions were being raised after the shameful performance in the first T20 match against Zimbabwe, now he has scored a century in the second match itself and has proved that he will remain in the same rhythm in the future as well.

Confidence gained from Brian Lara

Let us tell you that apart from his father Rajkumar Sharma and former Indian player Yuvraj Singh, West Indies’ legendary cricketer Brian Lara is also behind Abhishek’s success. Before making his T20 debut for India, Abhishek had performed brilliantly with the bat in IPL. At that time, after scoring a fifty in a match, he credited his father, Yuvraj Singh and former Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Brian Lara for his success. Then he said that with the help of Brian Lara, he was able to improve his game. If he has any kind of doubt, he shares it with Brian Lara and tries to find a solution. Lara’s guidance has filled him with confidence.

In 2017, he made his debut in the Vijay Hazare Trophy from Punjab

Abhishek Sharma made his debut for Punjab in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2017, where he performed brilliantly. In the same year, he also got a chance to debut in the Ranji Trophy and first class matches. Impressing with his excellent batting and bowling, he was made the captain of the Indian Under-19 team in 2019. Under his captaincy, India won the Under-19 World Cup, in which they defeated Sri Lanka in the final. After this, Sunrisers Hyderabad included him in their team in the IPL.
