Scoring a maiden swashbuckling century in the second match for your nation as a batter, following a forgettable debut outing, is an exhilarating achievement for any cricketer. However, what elevates this sense of accomplishment is having your mentor laud your performance to the whole wide world. Their pride in your consistent efforts and heartfelt wishes for your future success make the moment truly transcendent.

Indeed, it was a dream come true for the left-handed Abhishek Sharma, who rebounded from a four-ball duck in his debut game for India with a relentless and vicious century off just 47 deliveries, featuring seven fours and eight maximums. His captivating innings earned him the Player of the Match accolade in the second T20I against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club, garnering praise from all quarters.

However, what truly made the moment special for him was the heartfelt message from former World Cup winner and all-rounder, Yuvraj Singh. Yuvraj, currently representing India Champions at the World Championship of Legends 2024 in the UK, conveyed his admiration for Abhishek’s performance in a post that seemed to come straight from the heart.

Yuvraj, who has mentored Abhishek since the pre-COVID era and has significantly contributed to his development as a cricketer, had previously shared a dazzling picture with Abhishek, wishing him the best for the Zimbabwe series. Recently, Yuvraj posted a throwback video showcasing Abhishek’s relentless efforts on the field and in the nets over the years. The video was aptly captioned, “Rome wasn’t built in a day!”.

From sweaty gym sessions and rigorous outdoor strength & endurance drills to relentless batting practice on various surfaces, the 132-second montage encapsulated every significant detail of Abhishek’s journey. It included memorable moments from his U-19 days, highlights from his IPL career, and triumphant snapshots of his remarkable second-game century. The montage essentially provided a comprehensive and inspiring portrayal of the youngster’s dedication and achievements.
