5 points for Jitesh Sharma who replaced Sanju Samson in the remaining T20 against Sri Lanka
The All India Senior Selection Committee on Wednesday named Jitesh Sharma as a replacement for the injured Sanju Samson for the remainder of the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka.
Here are five thoughts on Jitesh Sharma:
Born on 22 October 1993 in Amravati, Jitesh Sharma is a right-handed wicketkeeper and batsman from Maharashtra. Jitesh Sharma is one of the stars of IPL 2022 and is known for his skill in playing different strokes.
After Umesh Yadav and Faiz Fazal, the 29-year-old Sharma is now only the third Vidarbha player to be selected for the Indian cricket team.
Apart from the Indian national team, he has played for Central Zone, Vidarbha, Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings.
Since his debut in the tournament, Jitesh Sharma has played some quick knocks for the Punjab franchise. He appeared in 12 IPL matches and scored 234 runs at a strike rate of 163.63.
According to the Punjab Kings website, “He’s a kid who started playing cricket to miss school to get extra marks and now takes on the responsibility of hitting sixes when the team needs him.” .
