Fit Ishant Sharma in consideration for rest IPL games: Tom Moody
Mumbai, May 6 (IANS)
Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody on Wednesday said pacer Ishant Sharma was currently fit and surely in consideration for the rest of the Indian Premier League (IPL) games. He said the bowler has worked hard on the areas where he had to improve.
"Ishant is very much in consideration. He is fully fit. He obviously had a disappointing start to the season, with a couple of no balls and also some wides in our very first game against Chennai Super Kings," Moody said at the pre-match press conference ahead of their clash with Rajasthan Royals.
"Ishant has worked very hard for the last few weeks, to clear out those issues. He is very much in consideration for playing an important role for us in the upcoming games," he said.
Warner is exceptional: Moody
The coach heaped praise on skipper David Warner for displaying excellent leadership qualities in the ongoing IPL season.
"David is an exceptional individual. He has shown how he can grow as a leader. He has been excellent with his leadership both on and off the field. He embraced the challenge and he has done a great job. Most importantly it has not affected the brand of cricket he brings to the game," he said.
"He continues to play fearless cricket. He is a cricketer who is never satisfied and wants to improve more and more on the game. He wants to be the major contributor for the team always," the 49-year-old coach said.
