Delhi’s versatile man, Manan Sharma, has retired Indian cricket and will move to California for excellent opportunities.
Manan, the son of former Indian cricketer Ajay Sharma, was part of the Indian team that played in the 2010 Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand. The team was led by Ashok Menaria and included the ranks of the players from Karnataka, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal.
Manan Sharma was a teammate of Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant
Manan also played with the likes of Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Ishant Sharma, Gautam Gambhir and Shikhar Dhawan in the Delhi State team.
He was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) during the 2016 IPL auctions for an amount of 10 lakhs, but he never played for the two-time IPL champions.
