I. Sharma 7-74 v EnglandBack to boards

Ishant Sharma took a seven-wicket haul during the summer of 2014 to guide India to a historic Test victory over England at Lord's.

With England needing 319 in their final innings to claim victory, Sharma was in superb form, bowling short but effective balls to suit the field set by captain MS Dhoni.

Sharma claimed his first wicket when he clean-bowled Ian Bell, who departed for just one run.

It was the start of a relentless spell of bowling by Sharma who went on to claim the wickets of Sir Alastair Cook, Moeen Ali, Matt Prior and Ben Stokes to seal his spot on the Honours Boards.

He wasn't finished there, Sharma further dismissed Joe Root and then Stuart Broad to guide India to their first Test win at Lord's since 1986 and his country's first win in England since 2011.
