Ishant reveals whom he would love to sledge on cricket field
There is no hiding from the fact that sledging has often made the bat-ball game ever-so exciting and entertaining at the same time. In modern-day cricket, sledging is quite common and it is often witnessed when two big teams lock horns with each other.
Recently, India’s lanky pacer Ishant Sharma revealed the cricketer whom he would love to sledge on the cricket field. Ishant Sharma usually never misses a chance to sledge the opposition on the field. In a recent interview with Cricbuzz, Ishant Sharma was asked as to who he would love to sledge between former Australia batting great Ricky Ponting and current Australia’s best batsman Steven Smith.
Ishant had a very interesting explanation for that. He said he would love to sledge Steve Smith more than Ricky Ponting. “Steven Smith is the one who I would love to sledge more than Ricky Ponting,” he added.
It is worth mentioning here that Ishant Sharma has ruffled both Ricky Ponting and Steve Smith’s feathers.
Ishant irked Ponting in 2008 in superb spell against the Aussies at Perth. He chipped in with a superb spell to dismiss Australian captain Ricky Ponting, who was one of the best batsmen Australian national cricket has ever produced.
During Australia’s tour to India in the year 2017, Ishant Sharma tried to troll Steven Smith during the passage of play. The pacer himself mimicked Steve Smith on the field and left everyone in stitches.
