London: Zaheer Khan said that it was time Ishant Sharma should step up and spearhead the Indian bowling attack during the upcoming five-Test series against England, starting in Nottingham on July 9.
Ishant had a miserable outing during the tour match vs Leicestershire. “It is Ishant who has played the most number of matches and he has been around for a while. It is time he steps into that role,” Zaheer, who missed out on selection for the England tour because of a side strain, told ESPNCricinfo.com. Zaheer is confident to bounce back after another injury setback.
