Mohit 2.0 ready for national T20 comeback?

From being a Gujarat Titans net bowler last year to almost taking the team to its second straight IPL title, 34-year-old pacer Mohit Sharma has been the biggest comeback story of the just-concluded 2023 season. Hardik Pandya’s comforting hug to Mohit seconds after Ravindra Jadeja’s final over blitz took CSK to a record-equalling fifth title not only showed the character of Titans captain, it was also an acknowledgement of Haryana pacer’s immense contribution to their campaign this season. Mohit may not have been able to nail the last two balls of the 15th over after an exemplary first four deliveries but nothing can undermine his efforts through the season as he ended with 27 wickets in 14 games, second only to teammate and friend Mohammed Shami. Not long after playing the 2015 World Cup semi-final for India, Mohit had gone off the radar but eight years later, the experienced campaigner has roared back into the spotlight.
