“When he has a good first-class record, he has the pace but consistency is a question mark. If you have to play him Test cricket for a long time, you need to give him a little time to do well in first-class cricket and then you can select him for Test cricket,” he said while commentating on JioCinema.
Ishant Sharma further added that
“You won’t be fair to those who have performed in first-class cricket for so many years, picked up wickets for their team and for themselves so that they can play at a higher level.” Ishant Sharma said
The former fast bowler shared his thoughts on Arshdeep Singh
“His pace has gone up a lot from the T20 World Cup to this season’s IPL. How fast you bowl with the old ball is very important in Test cricket,” Ishant stated.
In the West Indies tour, the inexperienced pace attack is picked. Mohammed Siraj is most likely to lead the pace attack in the West Indies tour. As Ishant said, Arshdeep Singh is playing for Kent in this county championship to improve his bowling skills. He is also in part of the Indian team for the Asian games. Ruturaj Gaikwad is the captain of the Indian team in the Asian games. Rinku Singh is also part of the squad.
