Purple Cap winner Mohit Sharma becomes net bowler for Gujarat Titans21 March 2022, 12:18 pm
Cricket fans have been left shell-shocked after it has emerged that former India limited-overs pacer Mohit Sharma, who was the IPL 2014 Purple Cap-winner, had been roped in as a net bowler by new IPL franchise Gujarat Titans alongside left-arm fast bowler Barinder Sran for the upcoming season beginning on March 26.
Sharma, representing Chennai Super Kings, had emerged the highest wicket-taker in the 2014 IPL season, taking 23 wickets at an average of 19.65 in 16 matches. However, 33-year-old Sharma found no takers at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction last month.
Fans expressed their shock by taking to social media.
