After being snubbed in the 2018 Indian Premier League players’auction, India fast bowler Ishant Sharma picked up a five-wicket haul for his side Sussex in the ongoing County Championship against Warwickshire. Making his debut for Sussex, Ishant ended up with match figures of 29.2-7-69-5. While Sussex’s star players Chris Jordan and Jofra Archer are busy in the IPL, Ishant hogged the limelight by claiming 3 for 53 and 2 for 16, respectively, in both Warwickshire innings. The Delhi-born dismissed Wilfred Rhodes, Adam Hose and Tim Ambrose in first innings. In the next innings, Ishant sent Jonathan Trott and Ian Bell back again to back to the pavilion to perform a five-wicket haul.
Sussex CCC posted Ishant’s performance on the Twitter handle.
“Five wickets for @ImIshant on his @CountyChamp debut! Highlights from day four of our season opener vs. Warwickshire are available now. #gosbts” Sussex’s tweet read.
