Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma are counted among India's most successful fast bowlers.

Ishant Sharma and Zaheer Khan: If I ask you what is the similarity between Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma?
You would say both are fast bowlers. Both are fast bowlers of India. etc and so on…
But sir, this is not the only thing common between these two. Rather, the Test career figures are similar for both bowlers. If one or two figures were similar, then it could have been discussed what is special in this. But not one or two but five statistics of both these players are similar. If you are not sure about it, we will make you believe it.

Striking resemblance

Actually, the pace bowlers Ishant Sharma and Zaheer Khan have taken the same number of wickets in their test cricket careers. Both have taken 311-311 Test wickets in their respective careers. This figure is very common between two bowlers. But, the strange thing is that both of them have done the feat of taking 5 wickets 11 times and 10 wickets once in their Test career.

Moreover, Zaheer and Ishant have 104 wickets on home soil and 207 wickets on foreign soil. Isn’t it a wonderful coincidence between the two bowlers?

Significantly, Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma are counted among India’s most successful fast bowlers. Don’t know how many great feats both bowlers have done, about which we will know more some other time. Zaheer Khan took command of Indian fast bowling for many years and contributed significantly to winning India in many big tournaments. At the same time, Ishant Sharma led the Indian fast bowling in Tests on foreign soil.

Ishant may be running out of Team India’s Test team but is still active in cricket. While returning to IPL this season, he impressed a lot. Playing for Delhi Capitals, he bowled brilliantly in the last league stage matches of the season.

Both have almost equal averages

Where Zaheer played 92 Tests for India, Ishant has been a part of the team in 105 matches so far. The interesting thing is that the wickets of both are not equal. Rather the average of bowling is also almost the same. Zaheer averages 32.94 while Ishant averages 32.40. The best performance of both the bowlers is also almost the same difference of just runs. Ishant’s best in an innings is 7 wickets for 74 runs. At the same time, Zaheer Khan’s best performance is 7/87.
