Ishant Sharma start his 100th Test with a dismissal of Dominic Sibley after he edged a length delivery from the fast bowler to Rohit Sharma at the second slip.
Captain Kohli saye Ishant’s 100 Test match achievement. “It’s a great achievement in modern day cricket. To maintain your body and play 100 Tests, it’s rare to see a pacer have such longevity these days.

Playing 100 Tests is a great landmark for any cricketer, especially a fast bowler. Have seen you play from your U-19 days & played alongside you in your 1st Test. Proud of you & your service to #TeamIndia.

What a journey it has been for #IshantSharma . That he is only the 4th Indian bowler ever and only the second Indian fast-bowler to play 100 Test’s speaks a lot about his hardwork and toil. Well done lambu ! pic.twitter.com/WsPIgYLFQK
