Articles about Joginder Sharma

The 2007 ICC World Twenty20 was the curtain-raiser for an MS Dhoni-led Indian cricket team. Winning the tournament laid the foundation for a new era in Indian cricket. But a player who will always be remembered for his heroics in that tournament is Joginder Sharma. Despite not playing for India after the fateful final in which he was chosen to defend 12 runs against a set Misbah-ul-Haq, Sharma etched his name in the history books when he got Ul-Haq caught out and ensured that India won the tournament. Hailing from Haryana, Sharma made his first-class debut in the 2002-03 Ranji Trophy. In the 2004-05 season, he showed his skills as an allrounder in the next two seasons. A right-arm medium-pacer, he came into the limelight after taking the wickets of Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, and Yuvraj Singh in a match between India A and the senior side. Sharma made his international debut in 2004 in an ODI against Bangladesh. Although he was later dropped from the team, an impressive 2006-07 season in the domestic circuit led to him being named in the team for the 2007 World Twenty20. As of 2021, Sharma is a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in the Haryana Police.
