Sharma was born on 30 April 1987 in Bansod, Nagpur, Maharashtra. His mother Poornima Sharma hails from Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. His father, Gurunath Sharma, worked as a caretaker of a transport firm’s storehouse. Sharma was raised by his grandparents and uncles in Borivali due to his father’s low income. He used to visit his parents, who lived in a one-room house in Dombivli, only during weekends. He has a younger brother Vishal Sharma.
Sharma had joined a cricket camp in 1999 with his uncle’s money. At the camp his coach Dinesh Lad asked him to change his school to Swami Vivekananda International School, where Lad was the coach and had better cricket facilities than Sharma’s old school. “I told him I couldn’t afford it, but he gave me a scholarship. So for four years I didn’t pay a penny, and did well in my cricket,” recalls Sharma. Sharma started out as an off-spinner who could bat before noticing Lad’s batting ability and promoted him from number eight to open the innings. He excelled in the Harris and Giles Shield school cricket tournament, scoring a century on debut as an opener.
