In the second match, India won the toss and opted to bat first. The team scored a whopping 234/2 in 20 overs, with a stunning century by youngster Abhishek Sharma. Zimbabwe got restricted to a total score of 134 runs, losing the match by a huge margin.

Abhishek Sharma’s 47 ball century

Yesterday’s match brought in a lot of comebacks for team India. From Ruturaj Gaikwad, who scored 77 off 47 balls to Rinku Singh, who scored 48* in 22 balls. However, it was Abhishek Sharma who stole the spotlight scoring his first 100 for the men in blue.

Abhishek Sharma is undoubtedly a force to reckon. The young batter debuted for team India yesterday and scored his first century for the team today. Sharma’s performance in the 10th over of 2,4,6,4,6,4 runs in each ball while Dion Myers was bowling was stunning to day the least.

Abhishek achieved his century in a mere 47 balls, taking his strike rate to a whopping 212.77. These numbers are daunting for the bowlers, to say the least as they face Sharma layer on in the series.

Abhishek Sharma lost his wicket after his impressive century on Wellington Massakadza’s bowl. Dion Myers took his revenge by taking the catch that sent Sharma back to the pavillion.

“I played with his bat..” Abhishek Sharma’s 100 on Shubman Gill’s bat

After smashing a 47-ball century, Abhishek Sharma revealed that he used the bat of his childhood friend, and now captain, Shubman Gill, in the second T20I against Zimbabwe. Abhishek referred to the bat as his “lucky charm” in what he called a “pressure game.”

Having been dismissed for a duck in the first match on Saturday, Abhishek bounced back the next day by hitting seven fours and eight sixes in his unbeaten hundred. His impressive performance laid the foundation for India’s dominant 100-run victory.

“Today, I played with his bat, so special thanks to the bat. It happened from the under-12 days, as whenever I play a pressure game I ask him for a bat.

“It had happened in the IPL as well. Today was no exception as it went well as it usually happens,” said Abhishek.The left-hander also thanked former India batter Yuvraj Singh and his own father for the fearless cricket that he was able to play now.

“ Yuvi paaji (Yuvraj Singh) has made a big contribution. I don’t consider myself as sixer-king or something like that. Special thanks to my dad for allowing me to play lofted shots.

“Generally, coaches don’t allow a young batter to hit lofted shots. But my dad always said if you wanted to play a lofted shot then it should go out of the ground. So, I wanted to follow that,” he elaborated.
