Delray Rawlins’ English County Club Sussex has announced the signing of Indian fast-bowler, Ishant Sharma for the first two months of the 2018 county season, subject to BCCI approval.
Rawlins told www.islandstats.com, “Obviously a pretty big signing, and from what he does on the international stage I have no doubts he'll be successful with us.”
Sharma will be with the club from Wednesday April 4th to Monday June 4th, making him available for Sussex’s first five fixtures in the Specsavers County Championship and all eight of Sussex Sharks’ Royal London One-Day Cup group matches.
The 29-year-old from Delhi made his international debut in 2007 and has since played 81 Tests, 80 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 14 T20 Internationals (T20Is) for India.
Only three Indian seamers have more wickets than Sharma in Test Cricket, with his 234 dismissals making him the ninth most prolific Indian Test Bowler Overall.
