Chennai Super Kings defeated defending champions Gujarat Titans in the final of IPL 2023. In this match, Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat team had a golden opportunity to win the trophy for the second time in a row, but their dream could not come true again. All the Gujarat players have contributed throughout this season. However, veteran fast bowler Mohit Sharma, who is also making a comeback, attracted special attention. After this performance of his season, it will be interesting to see if the doors of the Indian team open for him again.
Mohit Sharma was one of the best bowlers in IPL a few years ago. He won the Purple Cap in 2014 IPL. He also played two World Cups for the Indian team. But then his career took a turn for the worse. As no one bid for him in the 2022 season, Gujarat took him on board as a net bowler. Then bought him at base price this season.
He did not get a chance to play in the opening three matches of this season. After that, however, he contributed every time he got a place in the team. He was responsible for saving 13 runs in the last over of the very final match. He had conceded only three runs off the first four balls. However, Ravindra Jadeja hit a six and a four on the last two balls to give his team victory.
Throughout this season, he has turned the tide of the match many times with his sharp yorkers as well as well-timed slower balls. He took 27 wickets at an economy rate of 8.17 in 14 matches this season. Only Mohammad Shami took one more wicket than him during the season.
India has some bilateral series to play in the upcoming period. Also, ODI World Cup will be played in India this year. T20 World Cup will be played next year. All eyes are on whether the 35-year-old Mohit will make a comeback to the Indian team again.
