Experienced Indian fast bowler Ishant Sharma appeared in jovial mood as he addressed media ahead of the first Test match against Australia, scheduled to begin on December 6.

Ishant has made a number of appearances in Australia, a fact that perhaps prompted one journalist to interrogate him over the experience Down Under.

“I think you’ve been coming here for 11 years now, is that right?” was the question asked.

Ishant, however, was quick to correct the journalist. “I do not come here every year, but yes,” he replied with a chuckle.

“11 years since the first time,” the journalist added, reframing his question before they continued with their exchange.

You better get your facts right before talking to the big guy!

Meanwhile, India have been warming up for the 4-Test series by playing Cricket Australia XI.

After putting up 358 runs on board, Virat Kohli and company struggled against the home team, who ended Day 3 at 356-6.

To add to their woes, in-form opening batsman Prithvi Shaw was ruled out of the opener after suffering an ankle injury during the practice match.
