Pushkar made his Kenya team debut against St. Helena on November 17th, 2022.

Kenya won the first of two African Sub-Regional T20 Qualifiers in Kigali, advancing along with the hosts Rwanda to the Africa Finals and a step closer to the 2024 T20 World Cup. In the regional final, where the seven countries will compete for Africa's two World Cup qualification slots together with the top two teams from next week's Sub-Regional at the same venue, Kenya and Rwanda advance to join Zimbabwe, Namibia, and Uganda.

A year after the death of his father from cancer, Pushkar has faced his own challenges, including moving to a Nairobi, starting over in cricket, and finding a new home in the country of Africa.

He is a player of the Nairobi-based  Ruaraka Sports Club and has demonstrated consistency at the top of the order. The southpaw was also a prominent player in Swaminarayan Pro-T20 League, Nairobi Cricket League, African premier League. He scored 66* runs against Sikh Union Club on  Last Sunday in Npca..

 In their recent game, Seychelles scored 94 runs but still lost. In that match, Peter Langat claimed 3 wickets. Kenya won the match by 7 wickets (DLS METHOD). Kenya's opener Pushkar Sharma, who scored 33 runs off 23 balls, including five fours and a six, was the team's top scorer.

 Pushkar said," It is any players dream to represent a country. When I was young I remember the Kenyan cricket team was really good. They had players like Thomas Odoyo, Tom Tikolo, Kennedy Otieno, Lameck Onyango. After my father's loss I got the opportunity to work and play in Kenya. This is true this opportunity I owe to Mansukh Hirani because of him I am here in Kenya. This selection goes to Mansukh Hirani ( CEO OF HIRANI TELECOMMUNICATION LTD) , my family's support and god”.

Regional qualifying continues next week as Qualifier B, featuring Tanzania, Nigeria, Ghana, Eswatini, Cameroon, Gamibia, Mozambique and Sierra Leone gets underway at the same venue.
