Ishant Sharma produced a fantastic spell of fast bowling today in the third day of the second test against England at Edgbaston, taking 5/51 as the hosts were bowled out for 180. It reminded Indian fans of another stellar day that he had against the English back in 2014 at Lords.
However Ishant had a county cricket stint at Sussex this season and his stats have been fairly good.
