New Delhi. Led by Virat Kohli, Team India suffered a humiliating defeat in the Headingley Test against hosts England. Fast bowler Ishant Sharma did not take a single wicket in this match, which is why he is facing criticism. Ishant’s performance at Headingley was the worst of the five bowlers. He gave up 92 runs in 22 overs. After this performance of fast bowler Ishant, it is said that this Test was his last match.
Former Indian bowler Ashish Nehra was quite surprised to hear this from the people. He says if Ishant’s place in the team is discussed or judged from just one match, it would be very wrong for this bowler.
Opportunity for both Siraj and Ishant
Ashish Nehra said that someone asked me if it was Ishant Sharma’s last match in Headingley Test. I was very surprised that someone asked me this question. He said no one should question anyone after the match. Players like Ishant Sharma cannot be judged by match performance. We may have 4-5 good fast bowlers, but you will not see a different bowler in every Test match. Replacing Ishant in the playing XI of the fourth Test, Ashish Nehra said that Ashwin could get a chance in the fourth Test starting at the Oval from September 2. In such a situation, only Mohammad Siraj and Ishant Sharma can get a chance.
