Who Doubted Him? Mohit Sharma Back From the Dead!

Remember Mohit Sharma, the Indian fast bowler everyone kinda wrote off in the IPL? Well, cricket fans, prepare to be amazed! He’s BACK and BREATHING FIRE for the Gujarat Titans (GT)!

After a three-year IPL hibernation, Mohit roared back to life in 2023. And forget just playing, this guy became a WICKET-TAKING MONSTER for GT! We’re talking a big 25 outs in just 14 matches – seriously good stuff! Not only that, his bowling number was a very low 13!25, and his how many runs was a low 7!85! Talk about a good buy!

Mohit’s bowling throughout the season was rock-solid. He was like an unbreakable STATUE, always there to shut down the opposition’s batsmen. No wonder GT, super impressed with his skills, decided to hold onto him for the 2024 season! 

Mohit started with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for just 10 lakh rupees! They must have seen something amazing because they paid him big bucks next year – 2 crore rupees! After some wins with CSK, Mohit bounced around teams – big money with Punjab Kings (2016) then a huge pay cut (2018). CSK even bought him back (2019) but then he landed with Delhi Capitals for super cheap (2020). For two years (2021-2022), he rode the bench! Finally, the Gujarat Titans gave him a shot (2023) for the same cheap price and guess what? He totally crushed it! Wild ride, right?

Hero of IPL

  • Wowzer! Mohit Sharma isn’t a giant IPL star, but he’s awesome when it matters!
  • Way back in 2013, he started playing with the Chennai Super Kings!
  • Before that, he did super good in a different cricket game (Ranji Trophy) – get this, he got a crazy 37 wickets in only 7 games! That’s like, barely any runs scored against him!
  • In his very first IPL season, he got a super high score – 20 wickets in just 15 games! That made him number two on his team for getting batters out!
  • Fans loved how smooth he bowled, how accurate he was, and how he got batters out early in the game!
