Ishant suffering from heel niggle


Ricky Ponting has revealed that Delhi Capitals’ experience­d fast bowler Ishant Sharma, who missed his team’s first two IPL matches, is suffering from a heel niggle.

“Coming into the first game, Ishant Sharma obviously had a heel niggle that we have been trying to work through,” Ponting said.

With Sharma missing out, Avesh provided Delhi Capitals the early breakthrou­ghs, claiming five wickets in the last two games and Ponting was “ultra” impressed with him. “He has grabbed his opportunit­ies with both hands. He has been around this franchise for few years,” he said.
