Cricket News sort by Ishant Sharma

Even since arriving in South Africa, Team India have been struggling to perform. With the one-day series against New Zealand.

As the year comes to a close, here’s a look at some brilliant performances by Indians during the course of the year

India are already in the driver’s seat in the Johannesburg Test courtesy of a huge partnership between Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli.

Vernon Philander’s all-round performance rescued South Africa both with the ball and the bat on Day 2 in the First Test at Johannesburg. The hosts finished the day’s play at 213 for 6 in 66 overs with a deficit of 67 runs to wipe before getting into the lead.

The third ODI at Centurion may have been rained out, but there was something to cheer for India’s lanky fast bowler Ishant Sharma, as he became the 16th Indian and the fifth fastest among countrymen to grab 100 wickets in one-day internationals.

The third and final ODI at Centurion ended on a damp note as rain ensured that not even a single ball was bowled in the Indian run chase. The teams meet again in Johannesburg for the First Test which begins on the 18th.

Many are questioning Ishant Sharma’s selection for the tour of South Africa in the wake of his poor form.

The axe has finally fallen on medium pacers Ishant Sharma and Vinay Kumar following their pedestrian bowling against the Aussies.

The Indian team for the two Tests against West Indies at home has been announced. As always, there have been some expected selections and some surprises.
