Temperamental Ishant Sharma could prove to be a potent weapon for India in World Cup 2015.


New Delhi: Terming India's prospects as very strong in the 2015 World Cup, former Australia captain Allan Border said that a fit Ishant Sharma should be a key figure for the Men in Blue Down Under.

Paceman Ishant, who was included in India's ODI squad against the West Indies after Mohit Sharma was ruled out due an injury, is working hard to get back and Border said that it's time the Delhi bowler gets a chance. Ishant last played for India in the One-dayers in January against New Zealand.

"Ishant Sharma should be a key figure if he is not injured. He is a good bowler and will do well in Australian conditions," Border, 59, said during an event organised at a city hotel on Saturday.
