new Delhi. During the IPL 2022 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders played on Wednesday, when the Indian cricket team’s fast bowler Ishant Sharma was seen by the fans in the virtual guest box, he was completely surprised. The match turned out to be special for RCB in the last overs. However, with the victory of RCB, reactions started coming on social media about Ishant Sharma too.

Virtual Guest Box is a concept in IPL, where a fan representing the sponsor can watch the match from the comfort of their own space. Ishant Sharma appeared in the guest box as the representative of Rupay.
Not only a few days ago, Ishant was a key member of the Indian Test team, but due to poor form and the emergence of several top bowlers, Ishant has been dropped from the Indian team in the recent Test series. He also went unsold in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. However, in the 2019 auction, Delhi Capitals added him with them. Then he came to play for Delhi in IPL for 3 consecutive seasons. 33-year-old Ishant has played a total of 93 matches in IPL career, taking 72 wickets at an economy of 8.11. At the same time, his best performance in IPL was taking 5 wickets for 12 runs.
I’m sorry, Ishant Sharma. You deserve better.#IPL
