Ishant Sharma Biography

Ishant Sharma is an Indian cricketer who specializes in right arm fast-medium bowling. Sharma was called to join the Indian squad for the tour of South Africa in 2006–07, at the tender age of eighteen. In 2011 he became the fifth youngest player to take 100 Test wickets. Ishant plays for Delhi in domestic cricket and has taken 68 wickets in 14 first-class games. Ishant toured England with the India Under-19s in 2006 and Pakistan in 2006–07. Based on his impressive performance alone, Ishant Sharma was bought for a winning bid of $950,000 by Kolkata Knight Riders. In January 2008 Sharma was called to represent India once again to replace the injured Zaheer Khan in the second test at the SCG. On 10 February 2008, Sharma bagged four important wickets in the 4th ODI of CB Series against Australia. He ended the match with figures of 4/38 and named man of the match. During the 2008 Test series against Australia in India, Ishant was the leading wicket-taker, with 15, and was named man-of-the-series as India won 2–0. He was noted for achieving reverse swing on balls sometimes as young as eight overs, and along with senior opening bowler Zaheer Khan, troubled the touring Australians. He claimed his 100th Test wicket in the second Test of 2011 ODI series, becoming the fifth youngest to reach the landmark.
