TATA IPL 2022: Former Purple Cap Winner joins Gujarat Titans’; netizens react

Big news has come out before the start of IPL 2022. A bowler who won the first Purple Cap in IPL is making a comeback. This bowler is awesome.

Now less than a week is left for the start of IPL 2022. Every cricket fan likes IPL, which is considered to be the biggest cricket league in the world.

This year IPL is going to be even more bang because this season two new teams named Gujarat and Lucknow will also make their mark. Meanwhile, great news has come out for Gujarat Titans.

Purple cap bowler came in the team

Cricket fans have been surprised after IPL 2014 Purple Cap winner and former India limited-overs pacer Mohit Sharma has been included in the new IPL franchise Gujarat Titans’ team as the net bowler. The league is going to start on 26 March.

Sharma, who represented Chennai Super Kings, became the highest wicket-taker in the 2014 IPL season with 23 wickets in 16 matches at an average of 19.65. The 33-year-old Sharma was not bought by any franchise in the IPL 2022 mega auction last month.

Won Purple Cap for CSK

The Haryana cricketer was part of Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led CSK between 2013 and 2015 before moving to Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings 2016–2018). In 2019, he once again returned to CSK.  In 2020, he also worked with Delhi.

Overall, the bowler has 92 wickets in 86 IPL games. Sharma, who has played 26 ODIs and 8 T20Is, was also part of the Indian team that made it to the 2014 ICC World T20 final in Bangladesh and the 2015 World Cup semi-final co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

Career Over 

Mohit Sharma’s career graph started going down after CSK’s two-year suspension. Although he was included by Punjab, he did not prove to be as lethal.

Mohit Sharma tried to become the bowler of 2014 for CSK in 2019 but he was nowhere near his best. He hardly made any impact with Delhi Capitals in 2020 as well, bagging just one match in the season and taking 1/45 wickets.

Fans got angry

Fans said on social media that it is not good to see Mohit Sharma as a net bowler. Mohit Sharma was a purple cap winner in 2014 but now he is just a net bowler, what a turnaround.

Gujarat Titans will start their IPL 2022 campaign against Lucknow Super Giants at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on March 28.
