Default Excel 2016: make a cell value from the number in a different cell

if Sheet1!A1 has the value 50, I would like to enter a formula that points to Sheet2!B50 because 50 is in A1. I cannot enter B50 directly, Excel has to take the '50' from A1.




How can i do this?

Default

Perhaps
=INDEX(Sheet2!B1:B50,A1)
to avoid INDIRECT which is volatile
