Ishant Sharma aims to be fit for India’s Test series in Australia
Fast bowler Ishant Sharma on Wednesday bowled full tilt at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore with an aim to be fit for India’s four-match Test series in Australia, starting December 17.
Ishant was ruled out of the IPL following an abdominal muscle tear.
Among those present at the Chinnaswamy were Sunil Joshi, chairman of selectors, and NCA chief Rahul Dravid.
In Sydney, India’s Test wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha was back at nets and showed no signs of discomfort following hamstring injury on both his legs.
Rohit Sharma is expected to be at the NCA this week.
