Ishant Sharma: Projecting His India Career on His 25th Birthday

Ishant Sharma turned 25 on 2 September 2013. With 51 Tests and 65 one-day internationals to his name, the Indian quick can be called "experienced." Yet, he's not had the best experiences on the international circuit. 

Despite his tall physique and a work-hard attitude, Sharma has the DNA of what could make for a really threatening fast bowler. His high-arm action and his tall frame, means that he can often reach speeds of up to 140km/h. Speed is important, of course, but accuracy matters more. That's something Sharma hasn't quite managed consistently.

A fast bowler, if managed properly, should play until he's into his early 30s. As things stand for Sharma now, it's hard to see him manage to keep his place in the Indian team until he's 27. Here's an overview of his career and a glimpse into where he might head in the future.
