ishant sharma biography

Ishant Sharma (born September 2, 1988, in Delhi, India), is an Indian cricketer, more specifically a fast-medium pace bowler at pace around 140 km/h (87 mph). He has a high arm delivery action and is able to move the ball in both directions. Sharma was called up to join the Indian national cricket team for the 2006–07 Test series in South Africa at the age of 18, though he did not play for his country in the series. However, after receiving the call and organizing travel arrangements, it was decided to not send for Sharma after all. In May 2007, he was called as a replacement for fast bowler Munaf Patel, for his national side for the second test against Bangladesh, where he has bowled 3 overs so far, bowling one maiden and only conceding five runs, without taking a wicket.

He has played three youth Tests and six youth One-day Internationals for India, and is yet to lose a match for them.

In January 2008 Sharma was called to represent India once again to replace an injured Zahee Khan in the second test of India's series against Australia at the SCG. Sharma started the first day of the match strongly and was involved in a controversial decision from Steve Bucknor when Andrew Symonds clearly nicked the ball to keeper MS Dhoni off Sharma's bowling but was given not out. On the fourth day of the third test in Perth he bowled an exceptional spell to Australia's captain Ricky Ponting that resulted in his wicket and helped India claim victory. The following test played in Adelaide on Australia day he picked up two wickets. In the 10/02/2008 ODI against Australia he took 4/38, gaining him a man of the match award in the match.Sharma has quite a high-arm action attacking on and around the batsman's off-stump( the corridor of uncertainty) which and this gives him the ability to nip the ball back in to right-handed batsman and also swing it through the air quite considerably, while extracting a great deal of bounce.

For a long time his name was synonymous with pace bowling in India and his feats inspired a generation of youngsters to take up fast bowling. Of all his achievements, the World Cup victory in 1983 was a defining moment for cricket in India. As India captain, Kapil played an instrumental role in the country's success.
