New Delhi. The Indian cricket team is currently on a tour of England and the fourth Test is scheduled to start at the Oval from Thursday. Ishant Sharma was also with Team India on this tour. He has bowled brilliantly in the remaining two matches except for the third Test in Leeds. Team India played an important role in the victory, especially at Lord’s with 5 wickets. Today, September 2, is very special for him. Because he was born in Delhi on this day in 1988 (Ishant Sharma’s birthday) and made his Ranji Trophy at the age of 18 and his Test debut for India at the age of 19. His cricket career was swayed by struggle and success.
Ishant’s height and attitude matched that of Javagal Srinath. However, the foot-foot-inch bowler made his Test debut in the 200th Test against Bangladesh. But he got his true identity during the 2007-08 tour of Australia. Then with his speed and perfect bowling, he also blew the feeling of an experienced batsman like Ricky Ponting. Steve Waugh then called him the new star of Indian cricket.
On this tour, he bowled great in the ODI series and occasionally bowled at a speed of 150 kmph. He played a key role in winning the tri-nation series for Team India on that tour. Ishant took 14 wickets in that series.
Ishant played cricket after a torn spike
This form of Ishant continues. He proved his mettle in the first home Test series against South Africa in 200 home and then Australia. Then he took 15 wickets. However, the journey of Team India was not easy for Ishant. In the early days of his cricket, he played cricket after a torn spike. Not only that, at the age of 1, he got a chance to play for India. Its story is also very interesting.
Even at school, she is bullied for having long hair.
In an interview with Cricketer last year, Ishant revealed many secrets besides his first day of cricket, family sacrifices, fines for hair, marriage to wife idol. In this interview, she shares a funny thing about her long hair. Ishant said that at home I did not hear the pull of long hair. But the vice-principal would interrupt the school. He would set us apart in the assembly. Many times we had to pay fines. But we also ignored them and did not cut our hair.
Ishant had to pay a fine for his long hair
At the same time, he narrated an anecdote about the Under-1 team’s tour. Then the Indian team was to tour New Zealand and Lalchand Rajput was the coach. He was extremely strict in discipline. He made it clear that no player would wear long hair. If it is, it will be cut. At the same time there was a ban on wearing glasses, songs could not be heard on the bus. He specifically asked me to cut my hair. Once I went there but the saloon was not open. Once I was so tired I couldn’t go. I went on that tour with long hair and then I had to pay a fine.
In this interview with Cricketer, Ishant also narrated the story related to being selected for the first time in Team India. He said I was sleeping at home. Then Ratnakar Sethi got a call from BCCI. My sister picked me up and then I heard the good news.
Ishant has played 104 Tests for India
Ishant has played 104 Tests, 80 ODIs and 14 T20Is in his 14-year long career. He took a total of 434 wickets. He is the second highest wicket-taker for India after Kapil Dev.
