Former In the versatile Yuvraj Singh made a hilarious imitation of Ishant Sharma to wish the pacer a happy birthday. The sly sailor, born in 1988 in Delhi, turned 33 on Thursday (September 2).
The World Cup has posted a video on his Instagram page in which he mimics Ishant Sharma’s penetrating shrill voice. He hopes ‘lambu’ takes more wickets in the rest of his career, which started in 2007, and wishes he could help India win the ongoing series in England.
“Just kidding. Very happy returns of the day. Lots of love and best wishes always! Hope you have a great test series @ ishant.sharma29 ”, he endorsed the video.
The video garnered more than 900,000 views and more than 300,000 likes.
Ishant Sharma took 311 wickets in 104 Tests – it is a remarkable achievement to be a matchmaker. Although his overall average is not that of the elite bowlers, he has rebuilt his career over the past four years. He was a major contributor to India’s first wins in the Test series in Australia during the 2018/19 tour.
In addition, he has also appeared in 80 ODIs and 14 T20Is.
Ishant Sharma excluded for the fourth Test; Joe Root chooses to bowl first
Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami were dropped from the Indian squad, which lost in Leeds, for the fourth Test at The Oval. In their place, Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur were included in the team.
Ishant Sharma does look awkward and withdrawn at Headingley; he went without wickets in the third Test in 22 overs. The captain, Virat Kohli, revealed that both the senior pacers are suffering from nieces, and therefore they were left out.
English captain Joe Root also made a few changes: Ollie Pope replaced Dan Lawrence while returning Chris Woakes replaced Sam Curran. Root won the toss and preferred to bowl first.
