Pakistan Great Imran Khan Hails Indian Pacer Ishant Sharma

Former Pakistan great Imran Khan has said that Ishant Sharma could be a match winning bowler for Indian team, if the pacer can avoid injury and remains fit consistently. Ishant Sharma has been one of the key figures of the current Indian team and he has huge contribution to the successes of Indian team over the last one year. Along with Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma has now formed a lethal pace attack in Indian team. Unlike many other bowlers, Ishant Sharma could dominate the opposition batsmen both at home and overseas.

The kind of applause Ishant Sharma received from a former great like Imran Khan must inspire the bowler to work hard and put extra pressure on his fitness. Injury is common-a-matter for pace bowlers. So, remaining fit is very important for any pacer. Imran Khan earlier praised Irfan Pathan and Shane Bond, but both the players lost their prominence mainly because of their recurring injuries.
