In the IPL 2022 mega auction, he could not find any bidders and as a result, he went unsold. The right-arm fast bowler, Mohit Sharma has picked up 92 wickets from just 86 games in the IPL. His best season was 2013 as he went on to grab 23 wickets off just 16 matches.
He was also a part of the Indian team for the 2015 World Cup. When MS Dhoni’s CSK was suspended for two years, he moved into Punjab Kings to lead the pace attack of the franchise.
Though he played all games in his first two seasons for Punjab, he could not make an impact and he has later dropped from the team. In 2019, he returned to his former franchise Chennai Super Kings, however, he could play only one game and then moved to Delhi Capitals.
