Indian bowler Ishant Sharma has said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a wonderful bowler. The duo made sure that England were restricted to 352-9 in their first innings in the Trent Bridge test against India yesterday. Bhuvi took 4 wickets while Ishant himself took 3. They bowled a good line and length, ensuring that the batsmen got very few bad deliveries. They were well supported by Mohammed Shami as well.

Ishant, who has been touted as the leader of the Indian attack, said, “I don’t think like that. We are of the same age group, so I don’t consider myself the leader. When playing Test matches, since I have played more I just share my experience. There is a long way to go and cricket is a very funny game. As you see, we had taken those six wickets and the last two partnerships made those many runs. So, we have to keep bowling in the right areas and wait for things to happen.”

He added, “Bhuvi [Bhuvneshwar] is a tremendous bowler who uses the conditions very well, be it with the new ball or old ball. We cannot control the surface here, because we are touring England and England is not touring India. We have to make the best use of the circumstances and Bhuvi [Bhuvneshwar] and the rest of us are trying to do that.”

About the match situation, he also added, “The pitch will get slower, but I don’t think it will change much more than that. In these sorts of wickets it is very difficult to say how many overs are required to bowl the opposition out.”
