India Vs South Africa 2021 Ishant Sharma

Ishant Sharma: Fast bowler Ishant Sharma has been named in India’s squad for the Test series against South Africa. Along with Jaspreet Bumra, Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj, Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur, he will be bowling fast for Team India. However, Ishant Sharma’s continuation in the team was also a bit of a shocking decision. Ishant has not been on the farm in recent times. In addition, he is struggling with fitness. There are rumors that the tour of South Africa will be the last chance for Team India. Priority was given to his experience on this trip.

It is not certain whether Ishant will get a place in the playing XI in the first Test. However, India have a lot of options in fast bowling. Bumra, Shami, Siraj and Umesh are also in excellent form. If Ishant Sharma does not get a chance to play in South Africa or does not excel, his journey may end in Team India. The Indian team is scheduled to play a Test series from Sri Lanka after the South Africa tour. It is the same in India. Looking at the Indian pitches, Ishant does not seem to have a chance.

This fast bowler from Delhi is 33 years old. In such a situation, team management and selectors will also give opportunities to newcomers. Fast bowlers like Krishna, Avesh Khan and Navdeep Saini, who are famous in India, are on the bench. They all impressed with their speed and amazing performance. Also if Ishant is in playing XI then Siraj should be confined to the bench.

Ishant disappointed in 2021 ..
Ishant’s performance in Tests in 2021 has become alarming. Both his bowling average and strike rate this year have become the worst since 2017. In 2021, Ishant played eight Tests and took 14 wickets at an average of 32.71 with a strike rate of 72.1. His best performance was taking three wickets for 48 runs. During this period Ishant played Test matches in England and India but was unable to take wickets consistently.

Ishant’s career ..
Ishant has played 105 Tests so far and taken 311 wickets. His best performance was taking seven wickets for 74 runs. He made his Test debut in the 2007 tour of Bangladesh. But, bowling became the mainstay of the 2007-08 tour of Australia. He has been a regular in the Indian Test team ever since. His wicket-taking strike rate stood at 61.6. That means he got the wicket after almost 10 overs. Also, he is able to take the wicket after giving almost 33 runs. However, he has been playing well for the last two to three years. Due to this, he became an integral part of Team India pace attack.
