The left-handed batsman led India Under-19 to the Youth Asia Cup title in December 2016 and was an integral member of the team that won the 2018 under-19 World Cup and also now has a decent amount of experience in domestic cricket for Punjab.

After leading the side to the Youth Asia Cup title in 2016, Abhishek Sharma then revealed his inspiration.

Abhishek Sharma said that he had started playing the game from the ripe age of 7 and it was his family, in particular his father, who has been his main inspiration to do well on the field and in life.

“It seems like ages! Well, to be accurate I started playing cricket when I was of the age 7 and I think after that separating cricket from me was impossible. Cricket was the only motto of my life and I wanted to make my name through manifesting all my hard work in the game,” Abhishek Sharma told paisawapas.com in 2016.
“Everybody that comes and goes in the course of life plays some or the other role but only a few remain with you from the beginning to the last. My support and inspiration both are my family and my father. They have supported me everytime. It is because of them that I stand where I am today.”

The then-teenager also revealed that his parents and school have supported him very much in his journey to the top of the T20 cricket leagues and he’d never felt  being pressurized by the school.

“My parents are undoubtedly on the ninth cloud these days and my school has always supported me in everything be it studies or moral support. Also, as the game is giving me more opportunities the responsibilities and the expectations to uphold are increasing on me. It is because of such a huge support that I never feel pressurized as they all make me happy,” Abhishek Sharma said.
