'Thank you sir for reminding me...': GT pacer Mohit Sharma to Ravi Shastri during post-match presentation

April 01,2024

Mohit Sharma stood in serene silence, his hands folded in profound gratitude, eyes shut as he transported himself back in time with a breathtaking exhibition of death bowling.

His remarkable performance, tallying figures of 3/25, proved instrumental in Gujarat Titans' efforts to restrict Sunrisers Hyderabad to 162/8 in Ahmedabad on Sunday.

This impressive display came mere days after the Titans had etched their name in the IPL record books with a monumental total of 277/3. Riding on Mohit's heroics, the Titans cruised to a resounding seven-wicket victory.

At the age of 35 years and 195 days, the seasoned Indian seamer showcased that age is no barrier to success, a sentiment he graciously acknowledged while accepting the player-of-the-match award.

"Thank you sir for reminding me I'm ageing," Mohit, the 2014 Purple Cap winner and 2015 World Cup semifinalist, said in a lighter vein during the post-match awards ceremony when Ravi Shastri welcomed him saying he's "getting better with age".
