Ishant Sharma Complete Bio & Career

Ishant Sharma when made a grand entry into the Indian team by bowling a dream spell to legendary Ricky Ponting at Waca in 2007-2008 India’s tour of Australia. He though made his debut before that but after this spell, he almost cemented his place in the national team. In his next tour to Australia, he bowled the fastest delivery by an Indian when he clocked nearly 95mph. He also became the first Indian bowler ever to cross the 150kmph mark.
He was fortunate that the first IPL auctions were conducted soon after the conclusion of CB series and he fetched himself a whopping 950,000 USD contract with KKR. In 2008 when Australia toured India, he along with Zaheer Khan literally toiled the Australian batting order and proved that he can be equally effective on flat decks as well. He was named Man of the Series of the tournament as well. After enjoying a fairy tale ride for the first 18months of his career, his career started declining as he was taken to cleaners and finally after a poor show against the Australian in 2009 series, he was dropped from the team.
He couldn’t make a comeback easily as he was struck with injuries and therefore had to miss the 2011 World Cup as well. He went through an ankle surgery in 2012 and was out of action for months. He made a comeback but with pace dropping down from mid 140s to mid 130s. Selectors started ignoring him for the shorter formats of the game and was looked upon as a test specialist. He, however, has been very impressive in Tests and was instrumental in India winning a test at Lords after 28 years in the 2014 tour of England. His figures of 74/7 that he took in that match are his best figures to date. Even after having an experience of nearly 90 tests to his credit, he has warmed the bench in the stretched home tour of India in 2016 and 2017 as Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav are preferred above Ishant. However, it’s his experience that makes him stand out and can be India’s weapon in the long away tour that is scheduled in 2018. After missing out on IPL on some seasons, he finally won a contract with Delhi Capitals in 2019.
