Sidearm Specialist Rohit Sharma Selected For The Indian Railways Ranji Team
Rohit Sharma is a supremely talented sidearmer from Haryana who has made his way from rags to now being appointed as the official sidearm feeder of the Indian Railways Ranji Trophy Cricket Team. Having worked hard the last two years, Sharma finally received his big break when he was contracted by the Railways team.
Rohit Sharma has experienced an incredible journey so far. From dreaming of playing cricket for India at the age of 11 to playing for his district & DDCA, an injury which nullified his dream to being almost on the verge of breaking into an IPL team, Rohit has been through immense trauma, overcame and worked hard for each and every achievement. With passion, dedication and little fortune along the way, he finally got a well deserved break by getting contracted with the Indian Railways Ranji Trophy Team for the 2022-23 season. This provides him with an opportunity to work with players such as Karn Sharma, Upendra Yadav and Shivam Chaudhary.
I am more than grateful for the Indian Railways team and management for giving me an opportunity to work with them. I have been waiting for something like this for a long time now and it seems I’ve gradually started reaping the rewards. This is an incredible chance for me to work with supremely talented cricketers and improve my sidearm skills as well. I hope to contribute and help the Indian Railways towards their overall goal.Rohit Sharma
After a switch to sidearm in the 2019-20 season due to a career-threatening injury, Sharma developed innate feeding skillset when sidearm careers were on a rise. Under the supervision of Ranji Trophy player Chandra Pal Saini, Sharma amplified his abilities as he worked with top quality players. This improved his consistency, accuracy and speed making him a hot commodity instantly. Fast forward two years and Sharma is touring with the Indian Railways Team.
Over the years, Rohit has worked with top level IPL, Indian and State Level Cricketers right from the likes of Shikhar Dhawan (India & IPL), Mohit Sharma (India & IPL), Robin Bist (India A & IPL), Jayant Yadav (IPL), Rahul Tewatia (IPL), Shahbaz Ahmed (IPL and India A) & Paras Dogra (IPL player) to name a few.
Rohit Sharma persistently works hard and aims to be contracted with an IPL team.
