I really do not know how a yorker can be bowled with a crossed seam. It cannot land on the target. But most importantly, his basic problem is that his shoulder drops down. As a result, he looses his momentum and position," Prabhakar told <em>MiD DAY</em>.<br /> <br /> <br /> Prabhakar said Ishant faced similar problems in 2007 but he did rectify his issues. The subsequent tour of Australia in 2007-08 say Ishant trouble Ricky Ponting on a consistent basis.<br /> <br /> Prabhakar wondered how Ishant’s problem of dropping his left shoulder early was undetected by <a href="/tags/Wasim-Akram/post" target="_blank">Wasim Akram</a> and <a href="/tags/Waqar-Younis/post" target="_blank">Waqar Younis</a>. Wasim and Waqar have been Ishant’s bowling coaches in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad respectively.<br /> <br /> Prabhakar accused that Ishant was not adviced to take his words by a former Indian bowling coach. Surprisingly Prabhakar’s last game for India was when he was hammered for 47 off four overs in a group World Cup 1996 game against Sri Lanka in Delhi.<br /> <br /> "Ishant has to work hard on his bowling. His running is not a problem.<br /> <br /> There are some technical issues, but if he comes to me, I will help him become a champion bowler again in a month. If not, I will never talk about cricket again," said Prabhakar.
