“India’s T20 World Cup Squad: Will Abhishek Sharma Outshine Shubman Gill as Reserve Opener?”

With a strike rate surpassing 200, Abhishek Sharma has surpassed his fellow left-handers Ishan Kishan and Yashasvi Jaiswal at this juncture. Moreover, he appears to have overtaken his Punjab teammate Shubman Gill as well.

Young Abhishek Sharma has been in sensational form this IPL season, igniting his team with electrifying starts and laying the groundwork for big scores. In seven matches, he has amassed 257 runs at an average of 36.71 and a remarkable strike rate of 215.97. As the T20 World Cup approaches, the spotlight is on whether he will secure a spot as the backup opener, with competition from Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal.

As the cutoff date for announcing the T20 World Cup 2024 provisional squad approaches, all teams will be racking their brains to pick the final 15 for the biennial event, and for the Indian team, finding the best permutation and combinations to fit their final 15 will be a monumental task. The think tank’s job has been challenging, with players in the fray for a spot in the T20 World Cup 2024 going all guns blazing in the ongoing IPL 2024.

The top-order dilemma takes center stage. Will India opt for the experienced duo of Kohli and Rohit at the opening, or will they explore a younger alternative to partner Rohit? While Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Ishan Kishan emerged as contenders for the opening slots, Jaiswal’s poor season and Kishan’s inconsistency have shifted the spotlight to other candidates.

The chaos caused by Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2024 is remarkable. While Travis Head, Heinrich Klaasen, and Aiden Markram dominate discussions, the emerging talent Abhishek Sharma is capturing fans’ attention with his explosive starts that have propelled SRH in the powerplay.

Despite not having made his international debut yet, Abhishek is making a compelling case to outshine Gill and Jaiswal with his current form. Among players who have faced a minimum of 100 balls this season, the SRH opener holds the second-highest strike-rate. He is only surpassed by his opening partner, Travis Head, who boasts a remarkable strike-rate of 216.
