Everyone told me about my problems but Gillespie provided solutions: Ishant
Millennium Post Delhi|December 29, 2019
NEW DELHI: Ishant Sharma was told about his problems by many but there was only one Jason Gillespie who provided him the solutions that he was seeking for the longest time.

Ishant also feels that “better communication” with years of experience between him, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav also worked wonders for country’s finest pace unit under Virat Kohli’s captaincy.

“The problem in India is that everybody tells you about the problem but no one tells you the solution. Now knowing the solution is an important aspect,” Ishant told reporters during an interaction at the Feroz Shah Kotla after the Ranji Trophy encounter against Hyderabad.

“I have realised that may be one or two people worked on the solutions. Problem everyone can tell you but one who is a good coach will tell you about solutions,” said the veteran of 96 Tests and 292 wickets.

So what was his problem? “A lot of people would tell me that I need to increase the pace of my fuller deliveries. No one told me how to do that? It was when I went to play county cricket, Jason Gillespie gave me the solution,” said Ishant, who played for Sussex under Gillespie’s coaching.

“Gillespie told me that in order to increase pace in fuller deliveries, you don’t just release it but hit the deck so that it should target the knee roll,” he said.

Ishant also explained how the former Australian pacer changed his training methods to get better results.
