Watch fight between Ishant Sharma and Sabbir Rahman


Ishant, like a senior statesmen, gestured Sabbir to just focus on his batting, shut up and play. Ishant Sharma picked key wickets as India inched closer to a victory over Bangladesh in the one-off Test.

Ishant Sharma is a bad ass Indian bowller and he has proven again.

Ishant Sharma, bowling an inspired spell on a hot and humid day, produced a few rippers on a flat pitch. The lanky pacer is in the habit of staring batsmen down often but Sabbir Rahman decided to stare right back and indulge India’s most seasoned bowler.

A nice sending off was in order for Sabbir as Ishant seemingly used some of his choicest expletives. With his tail up Ishant then channelized his aggression in the right direction to pick up the crucial wicket of Mahmudullah.

It may be recalled here that Ishant Sharma has been fined earlier for indulging in sledging and crossing the limits. In 2015 he was fined 65% of his match fees for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct after he had given send-offs to Lahiru Thirimanne and Dinesh Chandimal in the Colombo Test.

Ishant Sharma asks Bangladesh batsman to keep his mouth shut. Watch next what happened.

When Ishant Sharma meant serious business. #INDvBAN
