Ishant Sharma was at the receiving end of James Faulkner's assault in the third ODI at the PCA Stadium but the Australian all-rounder offered his sympathies to the pace bowler, saying that every bowler has days when he ends up looking "silly out there".

Faulkner’s 29-ball 64 turned the match on its head on Saturday as Australia chased down 304 with three balls and four wickets to spare.

“There is always pressure to bowl at that stage. I know that as I have done that a few times for Australia...there are going to be days when you would look silly out there, and that has happened to me a lot of times, don’t worry about that,” Faulkner said.

“But there are also other times when you might bowl a good over and win a game for your team, that’s cricket,” he added.
