India vs Zimbabwe: Abhishek Sharma’s secret? A borrowed bat | Cricket News

Abhishek Sharma announced his arrival on the international stage with a sizzling century in the second T20I of his career against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club on Sunday, and he did it with a borrowed bat.
After scoring 100 off 47 balls, which powered India to a mammoth 234 for 2 and eventually helped the visitors win by 100 runs to level the five-match series at 1-1, the 23-year-old Abhishek revealed that he did with skipper Shubman Gill‘s bat.”Today I played with Shubman Gill’s bat…whenever I think there is a pressure game or this is a match where I should perform, I usually take his bat,” said the batting sensation, who, like Gill, hails from Punjab and is also mentored by India great Yuvraj Singh.

Coming out to open, Abhishek smashed 8 sixes and 7 fours in his innings that came at a strike rate of 212.77, before being dismissed by left-arm spinner Wellington Masakadza.
Ruturaj Gaikwad contributed an equally blistering 77 not out off 47 balls, followed by Rinku Singh who smashed an unbeaten 48 off 22 balls.

Pacers Avesh Khan and Mukesh Kumar then took three wickets each to complete India’s big win.
