New Delhi: The third test match of the series between India and England (IND vs ENG) will be played at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad (Ahmedabad). If the fast bowler Ishant Sharma is included in the game XI of this match, he will become the cricketer to play the 100th Test.
When the media was asked for an interview during a 2019 Ranji Trophy match with Ishant Sharma, he interrupted by calling himself a “ lamp off. ” Now, after almost 14 months of this, these reliable Indian cricket bowlers are preparing to achieve a new status.

Ishant, meanwhile, was unable to play 5 games due to injury but is now on his way to becoming the second-fastest bowler to make 100 test matches for India after Kapil Dev. Ishant then said in Ferozeshah Kotla, “Hey man, what are you going to do interviewing me?” I am an extinguished lamp.
Ishant’s ex-partner and coach in Delhi, Vijay Dahiya, believes he will be the last quick bowler to make 100 test matches for the country. Dahiya said, “I think I will say this with complete certainty. Ishant will be the last Indian fast bowler to play 100 test matches.
Vijay Dahiya added: “ I don’t think anyone will be able to play 100 test matches. Most of the fast bowlers protect themselves for the IPL and limited overs matches and in such a situation it will be very difficult for India to play 100 test matches.
For the past 16 years, Ishant’s partner and current Delhi captain Pradeep Sangwan believes that when Virat Kohli and Ishant Sharma competed in the Delhi Under-17 trials he looked like a different type of bowler. Sangwan said, “ He’s so tall and his hair wavy again, we used to tease him. Listen, Brother Shahrukh has been here a long time ago.
He said: “ Even in the Under 17s he was very tall and used to play really fast. We knew he was special. You must have seen that when Virat took us to win the Under-19 World Cup in 2008, Ishant had become a test player and didn’t need to play in that tournament.
Ishant Sharma has won 226 wickets in his first 79 tests, but has taken 76 in the last 20 matches, which looks like the fast Delhi bowler has adapted to the needs of the team.
Dahiya said: “Dhoni used him as a defensive bowler who kept the bridle at one end. He was relying on Ishant to play that role. You know how he has stayed with the team for so long because it’s important to know what your captain wants and walk accordingly.
Due to his hard work and fitness, he did 8-9 overs in a spell check by test. Sangwan said: “ He has done 8-9 overs in each period for the past 18 years at a speed of 140 km. Now he’s going to be 33 and even then he’s been doing so long with almost the same speed.
