New Delhi: India's bowling coach Eric Simmons feels the tall and lanky Ishant Sharma could be a perfect answer to England fast bowler Chris Tremlett in the Test series starting later this month.
Simmons, a former South African fast bowler, said if Ishant controls the ball, like he is doing in the ongoing series against the West Indies, the 6' 4" fast bowler can come handy on the bouncy pitches of England.
"If he bowls with the control he has got now, Ishant can be a real handful in England. He has obviously got the height. His ability to get bounce out of a wicket from a fuller length is crucial. He is getting more confident now that his control is back. The no-balls are disappearing. He's going to start finding the pace that he has. To try and bowl quicker when you haven't got confidence is not going to work," Simmons was quoted as saying by a cricket website.
