Ishant Sharma: It was a difficult wicket to bowl on


This Indian fast bowler who hasn’t been regular into the playing XI this season courtesy to injuries had a near perfect spell today against Bangladesh in the only test played at Hyderabad. He used the short deliveries to trouble the Bangladeshi batsman. Despite bowling so well could pick up only 2 wickets, as they say ‘stats don’t reveal the whole story’.

During his amazing spell he got into a tussle with the Bangladeshi all-rounder Sabbir Rehman courtesy of latter’s glaring with Ishant having the last laugh. Here is what he said

“When the ball is reversing, I know how to make the most of it because I can move it both ways. We are No. 1 side, and we are playing against Bangladesh and we have to show that we are aggressive,” said Ishant.

“I think the way Umesh and Bhuvi bowled, it was tremendous to see how they hit their lengths on a flat pitch. It was a pretty difficult wicket to bowl on, but if you are patient enough, you can get the rewards.”
