Ishant Sharma 2.0 more lethal under Virat Kohli’s captaincy …by Pratish Doshi

Ishant Sharma has continued to prove his mettle in Test cricket and has been captain Virat Kohli’s go-to-man of late. Ishant has looked much in control of his bowling since Kohli took over the reigns from Mahendra Singh Dhoni in December 2014. Ishant has been India’s pace spearhead since injury-prone Zaheer Khan lost favour with the selectors but he has often failed to do justice to this tag. (Day 1 Highlights by Pratish Doshi)

With new coach in Anil Kumble, an artist with the ball himself, Ishant could just reach greater heights under the legendary spinner’s mentorship. The 27-year-old, who is currently India’s eighth-highest wicket-taker in Tests, however, has lifted his game in the West Indies. He has always looked to attack the batsmen and the chances of him picking wickets early in the innings are always high.

EARLY BLOWS

Ishant gave India a brilliant start with the ball in the ongoing Jamaica Test when he struck on consecutive deliveries to reduce West Indies to 4/2 in the third over. The foundation was solid and the other bowlers capitalised on it. Ravichandran Ashwin picked up his 18th five-wicket haul while Ishant and Mohammed Shami chipped in with two wickets apiece as West Indies were all out for 196 in their first innings
