I am pretty happy with my performance against Australia. Although, I couldn't do much in the first couple of Tests, I did well in the last two matches. Overall, I am satisfied with my performance," said the lanky fast bowler, who finished with only seven wickets from the four-Test series.<br /> <br /> He has received a lot of flak having got only 144 wickets from 51 Tests but the 24-year-old is reasonably happy about how his international career has panned out so far.<br /> <br /> "I think I have done reasonably well in my career so far. I hope to continue to do well. In India, the wickets are not too conducive for pace bowling," Ishant stated after a session with young trainees at a cricket clinic 'You vs Ishant' at the Vasant Kunj Sports Complex.<br /> <br /> Ishant said he and his pace bowling partner <a href="/tags/Bhuvneshwar-Kumar/post" target="_blank">Bhuvneshwar Kumar</a> complemented each other in the team.<br /> <br /> "I concentrated in getting the reverse swing with the old ball [against Australia]. Bhuvneshwar swings the new ball and he has done well. For me, it was more about containment with the new ball and wait for old ball," he said.<br /> <br /> Ishant's tips for young fast bowling aspirants is simple: try to bowl as fast as you can at the beginning and not worry unduly about the line and length.<br /> <br /> "According to me, when you are young, you should think of raw pace only. Line and length can be learnt later on in a match situation. If you think of bowling line and length from a young age, you won't have pace." .
