Ishant picks his favourite batsman between Sachin and Kohli
India fast bowler Ishant Sharma had his opinion on the best batsman of all time. Though all Indians pick Sachin Tendulkar as their best batsman of all time, Ishant Sharma did not pick Sachin Tendulkar. However, the paceman had some other batsman in his mind.
In an interview with Cricbuzz, Ishant revealed was asked about his favourite batsman in the game. The pacer who played with God of Cricket for quite a long time in the Indian cricket team did not pick Sachin Tendulkar as the best batsman.
When asked about to pick his favourite batsman between Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar, Ishant straightaway said Virat Kohli as his best batsman that he has ever seen play on a cricket field. “Virat Kohli is the best batsman I have ever seen play on a cricket field,” Ishant Sharma told.
Ishant Sharma who still plays Test cricket has thoroughly enjoyed himself playing under the leadership of Virat Kohli. Quite interestingly, the kinship between Ishant and Kohli is also great because of the fact that both have played junior and senior cricket representing the same team on several occasions.
Ishant Sharma announced his arrival in a grand fashion when he stunned the opposition with his pace and accuracy. His first-ever tour to Australia was a game-changing moment in his cricketing career where he hit his peak performance by bowling a sensational spell against Australia batting phenom, Ricky Ponting.
Since then, he had gone on to become one of the most dangerous pacers in world cricket. Nonetheless, he often gets injured and this is a setback. He had worked a lot on gaining muscle strength which increased his speed and accuracy to a considerable extent.
