Ishant chose to focus on Test rather than limited overs cricket: Kohli

Ahmedabad. Indian captain Virat Kohli praised Ishant Sharma's commitment to Test cricket and said he could have opted for limited-overs cricket to prolong his career but chose Test cricket. Twenty-two-year-old Ishant will go into the third Test of the night against England starting on Wednesday, becoming the second fastest bowler in India to play 100 Tests after Kapil Dev.

Kohli said in the press conference before the match, "It is a big achievement in modern cricket. It is not easy for a fast bowler to maintain his fitness and play a hundred Tests. He could have opted for limited-overs cricket but he is credited with choosing not to. "He said," Many people lose their motivation. He has the skills and could have played four overs, ten overs cricket and regular IPL if he wanted. But he became completely devoted to Test cricket. "Ishant played in the last ODI in 2016 and the last T20 match in 2013. Reviving old memories, Kohli said, "I have known Ishant for years. He started playing state cricket with me.

We were roommates since the first season and played the Ranji Trophy together for many years. "He was fast asleep in the afternoon when he was selected in the Indian team. I had to drop him from the bed and tell him that he was selected. He could not believe it. Where did we start together and today he is on the threshold of playing the hundredth Test. I am very happy for him.
