Abhishek’s whirlwind performance included 8 sixes and 7 boundaries, helping India secure a convincing 100-run victory at the Harare Sports Club. Reflecting on the moment, Komal also posted a screenshot of a video call with her brother that evening.

After being awarded the Player of the Match in Harare, Abhishek spoke to his family, a touching moment captured by the BCCI in a video shared online. Throughout his cricketing journey, Abhishek has received unwavering support from his sister Komal, a doctor, who was frequently seen cheering for him during the IPL 2024 season.

Following his century, Abhishek also connected with his mentor and former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, as seen in a video where Yuvraj congratulated him on his achievement and offered words of encouragement for his future in cricket.

Abhishek’s batting prowess was on full display in the match, where he bounced back from a duck in his T20I debut to score his century in just 47 balls. Reflecting on his performance, Abhishek credited his father’s advice for his aggressive batting style, saying, “Special thanks to my dad who always encouraged me to play lofted shots even when I was a kid. Usually, coaches don’t allow you to play lofted shots much. My dad used to tell me ‘if you want to play a lofted shot, it should go out of the ground.'”

India’s victory, powered by Abhishek’s century and solid contributions from Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rinku Singh, helped them level the series 1-1 as they posted a formidable total of 234 runs.
