What are your views about Ishant Sharma? Reports said that he can bowl very quick but we didnt get to see any of that in the second test against Bangladesh. He was bowling good line and length but didnt bowl quick. What do you guys feel about this??

Frankly he has played only one test match and it is to early to come to any sort of conclusion about him. I feel he is tall lanky bowler who bowls good line and length and seems to be talented. And as he is only 18 he obviously has bright future ahead of him. He needs to be groomed and needs to learn the tricks of the trade as he seems to have promise. I feel it is too early to talk about how quick he can bowl as it's only debut match and with proper training and technique with age can obviuosly bowl faster who knows. Let's wait and see.

I don't think he would be able to bowl above 140kmh. But he has got a very good height which he could use to extract a nice bounce from any kind of surface. He has got a good future.

even i agree with you, they said that his coach had asked him to concentrate on only line and length and not speed

i have heard about him a lot never saw him bowling.but he said to be a good bowler and with that height he as many advantages too. he can easily extract bounce from the pitch.he has good track record but not much experience. Delhi has some expectations from him as he is the only bowler to be selected from Delhi.

I think Ishant Sharma is a very good bowler. It is good to concentrate on line and length than the pace. Also, I believe he should be picked up for England series. With more experience he will certainly become very good bowler. I also believe that Irfan Pathan also should be in the team.
