In this season of IPL, a player of Punjab Kings has looted everyone’s accolades. Even former selector Sunil Joshi has said that soon Jitesh Sharma is going to get a chance to play in Team India.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, the former selector said, “Jitesh has looked fantastic so far. This could be his quality and this could also be the reason due to which he was given a place in Team India in place of Sanju Samson. The way he has performed in domestic cricket and IPL in the last 18 months is the reason why he is seen ahead of the rest of the wicketkeepers today.
In this Indian Premier League season, wicket-keeper batsman Jitesh Sharma playing for Punjab Kings has impressed everyone. After playing 10 matches, he has scored 239 runs at a strike rate of 165. Jitesh has hit 18 fours and a total of 16 sixes this season. The best score has been 49 not out.
He further said, “Jitesh Sharma was given a place in the team for the last T20 series. His role will be that he should go on the field and openly show his game and enjoy batting fiercely. At this time, he has done the same thing for Punjab Kings this season. For the time being, we should focus on T20 format only. In the last 2 years, Jitesh Sharma has consistently performed well in this format. His performance was appreciated by the selectors and then got a place in Team India.
