A bit ungainly

Ishant Sharma has gone off the ground after suffering an injury which has been long coming i.e., one caused by his distressingly frequent slipping and falling in his follow-through. He did this several times in Australia, and the trend has continued in Sri Lanka. I've always been amazed that he hadn't hurt himself but his luck finally ran out. Its unclear how bad his injury is, but what is definitely clear is that he needs to think a bit about what his body is doing as he finishes his delivery and runs on. Its all very good winding yourself up and giving it your all as you deliver and run through; its no good if that effort takes you into a position that's hard to recover from.

Yound men in the making tend to be uncoordinated. I think he'll settle in once his relative body dimensions firm up. There will be more changes and resultant akwardness as and when he begins to add a little bit more muscle to his clearly lanky habitus. But it will settle down.

At the moment he may have to improve his thighs, gluteii, back and calf muscled to provide a firm base to his upper trunk.

SB: Ishant definitely needs some training, to get body and mind in gear.
