ISHANT SHARMA, 19-year-old young pacer bowled almost the fastest ball ever by any Indian during recent triangular series against Australia. Ashish Nehra holds the records for fastest bowling by an Indian. He measured 149.7 kilometres per hour during the 2003 World Cup against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo. Ishant is just 0.2 kilometres per hour less than him now. So, the cricket specialists have started saying that he would be the next speedometer of Indian bowling line-up.
Ishant Sharma may be running on right track, hopefully the performance helps him to create a permanent position in Team India. Thus, he proved to be a good player of the game. It’s not just his skill and temperament that has won him huge praise but the determination and commitment he displayed at responsible bowling line-up. The success of the young player helped team India to do well. India has some game on hand in the series and hopefully they will come good.
At the age of 19, Ishant is compared with the likes of Brett Lee, Shane Bond, and Shoaib Akhtar. As a pace bowler of Delhi team, he performed pretty well in first class cricket. And at this age, he is the quickest at the present moment. Former Indian fast bowler, Javagal Srinath described him as the best fast bowler. Cricket specialists all over the world, now have deep focus on him, and many of them are praising the bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad for excellent performance of Ishant. The youngster is now developing a liking for figures and hope he would be the fastest bowler of India.
