Cricket News sort by Ishant Sharma

Having lost the likes of Praveen Kumar, Varun Aaron and Sreesanth, Team India seems to be on the verge of losing Ishant Sharma as well for the Australian Test Series! As such there are enough doubts about whether Zaheer Khan would be fully fit or put the team in big trouble by leaving midway like how did on the disastrous England tour.

India's bowling coach Eric Simmons feels the tall and lanky Ishant Sharma could be a perfect answer to England fast bowler Chris Tremlett in the Test series starting later this month.

Ishant Sharma has signaled a rejuvenation to his bowling after a series of dismal seasons. In this tour of the Caribbean, he may be leading a so-called second-string Indian attack, but that hasn't deterred him from shining through himself. 10 wickets was his glowing contribution at Bridge Town, Barbados and now at Dominica, he has garnered another five-for and counting.

Indian pace spearhead Ishant Sharma is set to play the final Test against the West Indies here on Wednesday despite carrying the after effects of a collision with teammate Praveen Kumar on his face.

In what could be a big blow to the Indian team ahead of the third Test here, two of India's best fast bowlers Ishant Sharma and Praveen Kumar on the tour sustained injuries in a collision while playing football.

The Test team for the West Indies tour saw a return of some old faces and the inclusion of some new ones as Sachin Tendulkar opted out and Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh were ruled out for the entire series due to injury and sickness.

India ODI specialist, right-arm medium-pacer Praveen Kumar has withdrawn from the upcoming ODI series against South Africa due to an injury to his right elbow.

Ind vs SA 2011 ODI Series: Ishant Sharma was the notable absentee from the Indian cricket squad which was announced for the T20 match and the ODI series against South Africa starting in January 2011. Middle order batsman Rohit Sharma who played in the ODI series against New Zealand also failed to retain his place.
