They grow kohli and Rohit Sharma showered with praise Ishant Sharma as the step is at the top of playing his 100th test for India. The immobilized step will reach the three-digit mark when India takes over England in the third test of the newly built Mottera Stadium on Wednesday.
After Kapil Dev, he will be the second fast bowler to achieve this feat in Indian cricket. Ishant made his test debut for India in 2007 at the age of 18 and has come a long way since then, establishing himself as a vital part of the Indian red ball contingent.
“I remember a tall, unstable man coming into the nets and trials. He aimed the ball in the right zones and caused a lot of trouble to the batsmen and the breeders were immediately impressed,” Collie said in a video posted on the BCCI’s official website.
“Then he started playing for the national team from this season onwards and we’ve been partners in the room ever since. And we’ve been close friends since we started playing together. So Ishant, playing 100 tests, is an equally happy moment for me. I want everything best, “he added.
“Big congratulations on reaching the game for 100 tests. It’s never easy for every cricket player. He has seen difficult moments on the field, but he has never given up. Hall’s mark throughout his career puts him in one. “The shell is what Ishant Sharma is all about. He has reached a stage where we are counting on him,” Rohit said.
Cheteshwar Pujara said the atmosphere in the dressing room is always lively when Ishant is around. Ravichandran Ashwin, who did not turn the list, recalled Ishant’s spell of Ricky Ponting when he had hindered the former Australian skipper.
“Whenever Ishant is around, the atmosphere of the locker room is always lively. He likes to talk to people around him. I played against him many times and he took me out once or twice. There were times when they wouldn’t let me and he was disappointed, ”Pujara said.
“My first memory of Ishant was the dismissal of Ricky Ponting. The way he ran with the big insungers. All those fast bowlers who watch should realize that Ishant is one of the most hard-working cricketers and has qualified for to get to this point in the era of T20Is. If there is one person who deserves this feat, he is Ishant Sharma, “Ashwin recalled.
