Mohit Sharma, the tall seamer from Haryana has been picked for the Indian team that will tour Zimbabwe later this month. As the selectors decided to rest several senior players, Mohit gets a chance to don the India colours. However, he says that the call-up was unexpected.

Mohit told PTI, "IPL has got me recognition but my 44 wickets in 11 Ranji Trophy matches is the reason that I have received the biggest news in my cricketing career. I owe it to my state Haryana which has given me everything. Had I not done well in Ranji Trophy for two consecutive seasons, I wouldn't have played IPL and not even got selected in the team."
