His ability to generate bounce from his height makes him a vital asset for India’s overseas tours, particularly those played outside the subcontinent. Sharma is also known for being a stubborn lower-order bat. He showed a lot of commitment with the bat teaming up with VVS Laxman in 2010 to register an iconic win against Ausralia in Mohali.
He has often received a lot of criticism for being inconsistent even after playing more than fifty Test matches for India. For Ishant though it is a constant learning process and the road to success will definitely come his way. In 2014, he took center stage with a seven-wicket haul against England at Lord’s which helped India win at the Home of Cricket after 28 years. In Ishant there is hope and a constant prayer for him to be India’s next leader of the pace attack.
