Ishant was cock-a-hoop and he came with a rather bizarre facial expression.

Ishant Sharma, the tall and lanky Indian fast bowler, first played international cricket in Australia back in 2007, but he hadn’t quite tasted much of a success in the previous tours, apart from a few impressive spells here and there. However, the Delhi-born 30-year-old speedster has bowled superbly in the ongoing Test series against the Aussies as he has been amongst the wickets.
In the first match at the popular Adelaide Oval, he bowled with venom and was rewarded with three wickets. In fact, he picked up the first Australian wicket of the series after dismissing Aaron Finch with a ball that took his stumps apart. Nevertheless, Ishant went on to pick up as many as four wickets in the first innings of the second Test, which India lost by 146 runs, at the new Perth Stadium.
Ishant Sharma shows his anger
The second innings saw him pick up only the wicket of Peter Handscomb, who isn’t a part of the ongoing encounter at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). In the meantime, Sharma has also been aggressive while celebrating a wicket and he showed it in Australia’s second innings after dismissing Travis Head, who looked determined with a knock of 34 runs from 92 balls with a couple of fours.
Ishant bowled a full-length delivery and Head’s eyes lit up on seeing the ball. The left-hander winded up to play the big and booming cover-drive. Unfortunately, the ball found his inside edge and crashed into the leg stump. Quite expectantly, Ishant was cock-a-hoop and he came with a rather bizarre facial expression. It wasn’t the time first time when he came up with such expressions.
At that point in time, Head had put a stand of 22 runs from around 11 overs with opposition captain Tim Paine, also a wicketkeeper. India would’ve been satisfied as they were able to send the sixth Australian batsman back to the hut.
