Sports News: Ishant Sharma’s absence – The series is scheduled to begin between India and Australia on Thursday after a long wait, but there is also a sad news that Ishant Sharma will not be able to play in this series, mainly because he is hurt.
It is said that Ishan Sharma is the first Indian cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar to have made five tours to Australia. In the absence of Ishant Sharma’s, India team will give an opportunity to one of the players in the playing XI, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini and Mohammad Siraj.
Australian batsman Steve Smith said that India will miss Ishant Sharma. He said, “Ishant’s absence is probably a big loss for India. He has played a lot of cricket. Without him his team will not be strong.”
Rahane supported Smith and said that they will surely miss Ishant as he is a very senior fast bowler. He only said that despite this India has good options.
Rahane said, “I think we have a really strong bowling attack. Umesh, Saini, Siraj, Bumrah and Shami are all good bowlers and have experience. They know how to bowl here. Bowling is about partnership. You know that we bowled well here last time. This is a new series which will start with pink ball. It is important to get the rhythm. I believe our bowlers can take 20 wickets.”
