Abhishek Sharma said, Mentor Yuvraj was very happy when I got out for duck; he must be proud now

The opener of team India, Abhishek Sharma, has revealed that his mentor, Yuvraj Singh, was delighted when he got out for a duck on his T20I debut against Zimbabwe here, as the swashbuckling former all-rounder, for reasons best known to him, felt it was a “good start.”.
Abhishek Sharma, while making his test debut, was out on duck as the men in blue lost the first T20I against hosts Zimbabwe by 13 runs on July 6. But the 23-year-old came back strongly to set the stage ablaze with a blistering maiden century (a 47-ball 100) to fashion India’s 100-run win in the second game a day later.
Abhishek said in a video posted by BCCI, “I spoke to him yesterday also, and I don’t know why he was very happy when I got out on zero. He said, That’s a good start, but he must be very happy and proud, just like my family.”
After Sunday’s game, Abhishek called Yuvraj, and he couldn’t be happier for the youngster. “It’s all because of him as well, the hard work he has put into (shaping) me. (For two-three years, he has worked really hard not only on my cricket but off the field (life) as well.” 
“Well done, very proud; you deserve it. There are many more (such innings) to come; this is just the start,” Yuvraj said.
