Is Abhishek Sharma best option to replace Rohit in T20Is: After successfully guiding India to victory in the T20 World Cup 2024, India’s veteran Rohit Sharma announced his retirement from the shortest format of the game.  

It was a shocking news for Indian cricket fans that their star batter will no longer play the T20 format, but Rohit’s decision was correct, as he is already 37 and what better time to announce his retirement than after winning the cup.

It’s only been seven days since the World Cup winning captain bid adieu to T20 Internationals, and there are many names in front of us, who can represent India as opener in the shortest format in long run.  

And one of them is Abhishek Sharma. The star batter, who stunned the world with his destructive batting in IPL 2024 while opening for Sunrisers Hyderabad.  

Sharma has struck 484 runs for SRH in 2024 edition of Indian Premier League at a mind-blowing strike-rate of 204.21.

He grabbed the attention of cricket pundits and overshadowed the established Travis Head, his opening partner in the league.  

Due to Abhishek’s excellent batting performance, he got the maiden India call-up for the Zimbabwe series.  

After an inadequate start to his international career, Sharma left no stone unturned to make his first series memorable, scoring a 46-ball hundred.

The most notable aspect of his knock was his 13-ball conversion from fifty to hundred, as after completing half-century in 33 balls, Sharma took just 13 more deliveries to score his maiden ton.  

He started his international career with a six, completed fifty with a six, and then a hundred with a maximum.  

His ability to strike the ball all around the park, especially traditional shots in V-circle, has kept him at the top spot in the list of contenders to take Rohit Sharma’s place in T20Is.  

Abhishek Sharma also carried the similar approach like Rohit of being a fearless batter regardless of any bowler, which makes Abhishek a perfect option to replace Rohit in T20Is.

However, this is only the beginning for Abhishek in international cricket; but if he manages to perform in a similar manner, he will not only be given an opening position in big matches, but he can also become a big player in future.
