    ISHANT SHARMA-- new-age Ajit Agarkar??!!

    Ishant Sharma seems to be in making of a new-age Ajit Agarakar.

    While doing postmortem of india's death in 20-20, I feel it's time for Ishant Sharma to be kicked out of Indian T-20 team. He hasn't won even a single ODI/T-20 game for India and had bad shows in both IPL versions, but still plays all the games for India and gives oppositions easy feeds. It seems that performance is not considered for his selection, just like once it used to happen for Ajith Agarkar.

    (He is boasted to be the fastest Indian bowler, but it's hard to find him touching even 140ks where as Sreesanth,Nehra and even RP do it quite frequently.)

    He's performed poorly in the T20s, but his test performances have been very solid and encouraging.

    Ridiculous claim to say he's going to same way as Agarkar.

    It obviously seems to be a problem of extremes. India obviously doesnt have a monopoly on it but it certainly exists.

    The expectations for this kid were too high early and now he gets kicked when he has been poor.

    He's only 20.

    It's way too early to label him Agarkar the 2nd.

    The Indian international players have played a lot of cricket over the last year or so- almost non-stop, so he's probably just drained.
    All-Time Test XI:
    Gavaskar, Boycott, Tendulkar, G.Pollock, V.Richards, Sobers, Gilchrist (wk), Warne (c), Waqar/Wasim, Lillee, Ambrose.

    The Indian team has had its fair share of problems and again the odd dud bloke, but this is not the problem, and more importantly, not the solution.

    I know. Welcome inside my head. It's not a good place to be.

    The clear answer is no. Sharma looks to be a very promising talent, sounds like a cliche but I reckon he could be a pretty good test match standard bowler.
