25-year-old Ashutosh Sharma is one of the few batsmen who have scored more than 150 runs at a strike rate of more than 190 in IPL 2024. After the Mumbai-Punjab match, he said, 'It was my dream to hit a sweep shot on Bumrah. I was practicing that shot and I played that shot in front of the best fast bowler in the world. He said, 'I was confident that I would be able to win the match for the team.' He gave credit for his better performance to the head of cricket development of Punjab Kings and former Indian player Sanjay Bangar.

IPL: Strike rate of 8 batsmen is more than 190, 4 of them are Indians, but hardly anyone gets a place in the T20 World Cup.

Ashutosh, who bats in the middle lower order, said, 'Sanjay sir told me that I am not a slugger and can play pure cricketing shots. It was a small statement but it meant a lot to me. I am working on this. I am not a hard hitter and play cricket shots. I made this change in my game. Despite the defeat of Punjab Kings, he said, 'Winning and losing are part of the game. What matters is how you are playing as a team. If we play well we will win. Ashutosh has scored 156 runs in 4 matches in the tournament. (input language)
