Ishant Sharma‘s scintillating performance in the second Test between India and England at Lord’s, left everyone involved with the game of cricket shocked. The bowler who has often been maligned for being batsman-friendly, rattled the English batsman and helped India register one of their biggest victories overseas. He was supported in equal measure by Bhuvneshwar Kumar‘s superb batting and Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s tactical genius. Performances from Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane were extremely crucial too. However, it was Ishant’s magic with the ball that clinched the deal for India and that is why he was the sought after player in the team after the match. Here is a snapshot of what his email inbox looked like after the match.
