Yeah, for sure. He is also a T20 speacialist too.

Happy Birthday Jos Buttler: Revisiting the best knocks from England’s finest batsman-wicketkeeper

Yes, for me. Maybe no for you. The point is, he took 9 wickets conceding least runs in an innings. That’s what my write-up explains.

Test cricket's unbroken bowling records

England has only one option for wicket-keeping and also who can bat explosively. And that is Jos Buttler. Unfortunately, Matt Prior’s career was not so entertaining and his poor performance and injury caused ECB to pick Buttler. Maybe over the years, it might happen. But as of now, England has the most powerful side.

Actually he is a T20 and ODI expert. To be honest, England has only one option for wicket-keeping and also who can bat explosively. And that is Jos Buttler. Unfortunately, Matt Prior’s career was not so entertaining and his poor performance and injury caused ECB to pick Buttler.

Thank you so much. Haha! George has conceded less number of runs and took 9-28 whereas James conceded 53 runs for his 10 wickets. And against – its in an innings.

Haha!

The number of runs conceded

Hey Zen, even I’m suspecting the same actually. Wish Finch returns back to this format or atleast Maxwell. Paine is like pain for Australia.

It’s so disheartening about Smith. And Paine became an accidental captain. But even there are a lot of critic comments going all over the media about Paine’s captaincy too. Whom do you think will be the next test captain if Paine is devoured from the captainship? Unfortunately, Finch too decided to step down for this Ashes. Otherwise, by now he would be leading the side. And yes, Muralitharan is a maestro of cricket.

Yes, I know that. But it was James Laker who took it first. So I wrote those records who claimed on the first go. Like you know, the first-come-first-serve basis.

Thanks a lot, Paul. I’m glad that you liked my piece. As we are talking about cricket hall of fame players and legends like Murali and Shane. So yes, it won’t be broken in this era for sure.

Haha! Ya Ruchika, I completely agree with you. No, not at all. You are sounding normal and you quoted a fact which is true. But in one way or the other BCCI is also too political in cases with players. But it’s okay, let appreciate the present moment and live with it. Life is all about present. Let’s not spoil the present moment by regretting our past. It applies the same to Ishant Sharma’s comeback. He also mentioned that he’s living in the present and moving in the present, like doing whatever he can in the present.

Why isn't anyone talking about Ishant Sharma?

Okay! if we are talking about legends of cricket then yes they are one of the fabulous bowlers of all time. Who’s the best? Is it Bumrah or McGrath? I vote for McGrath. Come on, there’s no doubt in that. If we talk about captaincy, then we need to talk about punter – Ricky Pointing, and Miachel Clarke who did extremely well as a test captain.

Why isn't anyone talking about Ishant Sharma?

Can I say Bumrah is nailing like Star or Pat Cummins? Haha! Don’t know and Ishant didn’t made any comments about playing 100 tests so far. Let’s hope for the best for the Indian team.

Why isn't anyone talking about Ishant Sharma?

Yeah Larry, even I’m a big fan of Ashes. After the World Cup 2019, I’m having a great time because of Ashes. And now CPL too. Hope you’re watching it.

Why isn't anyone talking about Ishant Sharma?

In the light of Virat Kohli, under his captainship, yep :stoked: Surprisingly Indian seamers are consistent too.

Why isn't anyone talking about Ishant Sharma?

Yeah agree Paul. Can’t deny. let’s hope for the best.

Why isn't anyone talking about Ishant Sharma?

Yeah Tanmoy, I completely agree. Just like everyone goes with their own pace in their life, he too did the same. There’re some ebbs and flows in his success rate. But he is one of the best bowlers India could have. And I can’t deny your words as well. 272 is mediocre number of wickets. Fingers crossed, hope he does will in getting more wickets for India from now onwards.

Why isn't anyone talking about Ishant Sharma?

Thanks for your comment, Paul. It’s not about following test cricket closely, but it’s about this young man’s efforts. Praising is all what every individual need for their so-called “Efforts”. And he deserves. Yes, it was the Faulkner show which he told Ishant Sharma to a couple of sixes and fours, conceding 30 runs in the over for India. But yes, he is a human just like us. He also mentioned in one of the press conferences that “we are humans and we tend to make mistakes”. He had a bad time, and it’s always a bliss to see a player coming back from such a hard time.
