NEW DELHI: Much-ridiculed paceman Ishant Sharma was the toast of India after a devastating haul of seven wickets for 74 runs demolished England at Lord’s.
Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar described Sharma’s career best performance on Monday as ‘exceptional’.
Speaking to the Indian Express, Tendulkar reserved special praise for Sharma, who was recently dropped from the one-day and Twenty20 side.
“He is a very hard-working guy and a great talent,” said Tendulkar, who retired last year. “We all have always had a great faith in him and today [Monday] he was just exceptional.”
