2014 Season Statistics
|Birth Date||30 April 1987|
One of the most naturally-gifted batsmen in the world, this 26-year-old is a prolific run-getter in all formats of the game and his batting is all about grace and elegance. While he has been making waves since 2007, this right-hander made several telling impacts last season – not least of which was an ODI double-century. He was also one of the most consistent Deccan Chargers batsmen in the first three seasons of the IPL, and he was instrumental in his former franchise winning the 2009 crown. However, since 2011 Sharma has been an integral part of the Mumbai Indians. In fact, he even took over the team’s captaincy a couple of games into the 2013 season and led MI to their maiden IPL title. He was, therefore, one of the five players retained by the franchise going into the 2014 season.
