Interestingly, he is tied with Zaheer Khan in terms of Test scalps. Zak claimed 311 wickets in 92 matches at 32.94.

The upcoming tour of South Africa might be Ishant Sharma’s last international series. The Virat Kohli-led team will play three Tests in the rainbow nation. Having represented India in 105 Tests so far, the pacer has done an impressive job in the red-ball cricket.

However, the selectors have decided to invest in the future with young pacers competing for a spot in the playing XI. Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj have been phenomenal in the game’s longest format.

“Rahane’s removal as vice-captain sends a clear message to him. He needs to give more as a senior member of the side. The same applies to Pujara. He has been around for quite some time, and the team now expects him to play in important knocks in big matches,” a BCCI official said to The Indian Express.

“If they score and make a significant contribution to the series, they may be able to extend their Test careers but the case is different for Ishant Sharma,” the official added.
