New Delhi: India fast bowler Ishant Sharma has made an impressive comeback after a lay-off of more than six months due to an ankle injury. He displayed the glimpses of his old self during his four-wicket haul for India A against Bengal in the Challenger Trophy and for North Zone in the Duleep Trophy quarterfinal against West Zone in Chennai.
Fully recovered after the surgery, Ishant says he is bowling with the same kind of intensity. "I gave it a lot of thought (ankle surgery) before going ahead with it. Missing the IPL was my decision and I don't have any complaints."
The Delhi pacer also spoke about the tough times he went through during the injury and the subsequent operation. "I think I am mentally and physically much stronger now after having gone through the worst phase of my life," Ishant said.
