India’s new ball king, Ishant Sharma, who has shown his character, even after a brawl with four Sri Lankan players, particularly with Dhammika Prasad he bowled with sheer accuracy. He is charged by ICC for breaching the player’s code of conduct along with three Sri Lankan cricketers-Dhammika Prsad, Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne.

The lanky fast bowler made some weird celebration during this Sri Lanka series. 

It seems he takes the responsibility to overthrow the Sri Lankan batting line up.

It is a good sign for India before the grueling home series against South Africa that first bowlers are winning matches for India. He has a terrific combination with Umesh Yadav is complemented by bating Allrounder Stuart Binny.
Before the series many people advised Ishant to work hard on the net. Former West Indies bowling great who is one of the legends who loved Ishanta Sharma bowling, but was disappointed for Ishant’s decline after a sensational start.

In the December 2007, the 19 old teenager Ishant ripped through the Pakistan batting order in the first innings on the flat pitch Chinnaaswamy Stadium. In the year between 2009 and 2012, injuries affected his form.

During the tour of Australia he bowled with enormous pleasure as fast Australian pitch he wobbled Ricky Ponting, who before his retirement became Ishant’s wicket in every Border -Gavaskar test series.

Back in Bangalore October, 2008, Australia were touring India. Ishant wrecked havoc them with 4 wickets a haul. Ishant, being a fast bowler like other Indian love hitting his deck hard on foreign soil. Ishant, who was trolled for his inconsistency, which caused due to rampant injuries. But, 24 year old Ishant helped India to win the ICC champions trophy in England in 2013. He missed the 2015 World Cup for being failed in fitness Test.

This time it is expected that Ishant will keep his consistency, and lead an Indian bowling attack from the front. The lanky fast bowler made some weird celebration during this Sri Lanka series.
