Ishant is set to be out!
Team India’s legendary fast bowler Ishant Sharma’s performance in the third Test against England was very poor. Ishant did not take a single wicket in the entire match. Apart from this, he also looted runs at an average of 4. It seemed as if Ishant’s balls were not having any effect on the England batsmen.
