India are in a strong position to win the first Test against England at Edgbaston and fast bowler Ishant Sharma played his part by picking five wickets in the third innings. At the post-match conference Ishant expressed his happiness after claiming a fifer and not just living up to the tag of a good bowler. He said that it takes a lot of effort for a fast bowler to achieve this feat, especially overseas. On the other hand, England has been guilty of dropping far too many catches in the slip cordon and fast bowler James Anderson believes that the team will continue to work hard to achieve better results.
