hi friends.lets make this short.there is this tall guy who was dropped/rested/axed from the indian one day squad due to poor bowling . he couldnt bring the ball in which is stock delivery but now in this test match against bangladesh,he is bowling like the old ishant we know.bringing the ball in,moving it slightly away sometimes and bowling close to 140 kmph. what happened? is it due to the confidence or the red cherry he is using to bowl?

of course it's a talent in my view,because in last series they did not well but he is come back in good spirit,his out of form only spoils his bowling in past games,but he is now in well form,if he continue with all they will succeed more,but he is really talented young bowler,in future definitely he will shine and my best wishes to ishant,this my view about this topic.

I think Ishant is always very good in Test Matches due to the long periods and batsmen needs to stay at the crease and play for a long time. In one day matches sometimes even the good balls are hit for boundaries with innovative strokes. And the pressure of maintaining run rate makes bowlers to commit mistakes. But it is good for Ishant to perform well in Test Series against Bangladesh as that can boost him for the next ODI matches.

There is no doubt that Ishaant has talent. The question is of nurturing him through the early stages of his career without injury. The problem that I see is of too much cricket killing off another good talent. I think Ishaant should definitely not play in the 20-20 cricket. He should also not play in the ODI series played on flat tracks in India. He should be exclusively used in Test matches and on receptive tracks overseas. That would help build confidence for the youngster and also keep him on a relatively lower work load. Cheers! Ram
