Indian cricket is full of inspirational success stories. The history enlists numerous cricketers who have toiled day and night to achieve huge success. But it also features several players who have seen their careers going south despite representing the country at a prestigious platform like ICC Cricket World Cup. Fast bowler Mohit Sharma is one such cricketer.
Gujarat Titans recently shared a picture on social media from their first training session where fans spotted two Indian fast-bowlers who have played international cricket but went unsold at the IPL 2022 mega auction -- Mohit Sharma and Barinder Sran.
His career graph started heading downwards. After CSK’s 2-year suspension, he was roped in by the Punjab franchise but he couldn’t deliver the desired results. He even returned to the MS Dhoni-led side but couldn’t perform like older days. Mohit shifted to Delhi Capitals in 2020 but hardly anything changed for him. He got just one game in the season and returned with figures of 1/45.
