Indian fast bowler Ishant Sharma made history by taking a ticket in the last match of the World Test Championship, which is played between India and New Zealand in Southampton. On the third day of the match, Ishant fired Devin Conway with a score of 54 and with this strap he became the tallest Indian bowler on English soil. This was Ishant’s 44th scalp in England.
Earlier, this record was in the name of the captain who won the World Cup, Kapil Dev. Capil took 43 wickets in 13 games played in England, while Ishant now took 44 wickets in the same number of matches.
Also, with Conway taking the gate, Ishant took his 200th gate to a foreign land.
The weekend came minutes before the match was forced to be stopped due to a bad light on Day 3, when New Zealand finished 101 for two in the first innings on Sunday and is still 116 tracks behind India’s result. India’s first passes came in the second session after scoring 217 runs.
New Zealand got off to a good start after India came out in the first innings when Conway and Tom Latham released 70 tracks for the first gate. Ashwin gave India its first breakthrough by firing Latham, who scored 30 runs in 104 balls with three fours.
