The India Premier League has a knack of unearthing cricketers capable of playing for India. Rookie pacer Mohit Mahipal Sharma can be one such talent if he can keep the promise demonstrated in Chennai Super King's 86-run victory over Delhi Daredevils at Feroz Shah Kotla on Thursday night.

Players like Yusuf Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin and Rahul Sharma emerged from the IPL cauldron to play for India while youngsters like Siddharth Trivedi and Ambati Rayudu, match winners for their respective IPL teams, have consistently knocked on the door of national selectors. Sharma wants to grab his opportunities in IPL this year.

"I am not the kind of bowler who experiments a lot. I don't believe in experimenting too much. Only if things are going against me, then will I try and experiment. Otherwise I believe in sticking to my line. That is my strength, so I will work on that. I bowl at a spot. And I focus on my strengths," Sharma told in an interview.
