KINGSTON: the largest pacemaker in India Ishant Sharma He is only eight games from entering the elite '100 Test club' but does not want to lose focus thinking about the coveted milestone.
On his 31st birthday, the most limited cricketer on the current team said it is better to focus on the job in question to avoid cramming the mind.
Ishant, who is playing his 92nd test match, has 277 wickets on the fourth day and is third on the list behind Kapil Dev (434 wickets) and Zaheer Khan (311 wickets).
I remember few years back, Zaheer was telling me something about 100 Tests but then he didn't also complete the milestone (92 Tests). I mean if I play another 4-5 years, yes I might complete but I don't want to think about it, Ishant, who surpassed Kapil Dev for maximum number of wickets by an Indian pacer outside Asia, told host broadcasters.
I think if you start thinking too far, then you can get confused, so it is better to start taking one Test match at a time, Ishant said.
When asked what are the new variations he has brought to his bowling alley, Ishant said: Now I can move the left-handed ball that comes from around the gate and also straighten deliveries.
Ishant also seemed happy how Jasprit Bumrah It has turned out to be a lethal weapon in such a short time.
