Ishant Sharma is going to play his 100th Test and he will become only the second Indian fast bowler to achieve this milestone. Currently, only Kapil Dev has played over 100 Tests. He retired after featuring in 131 Test matches for India.

Ahead of Ishant's 100th Test, which will be the third Test match between India and England, his teammate Rohit Sharma recalled the favourite moment of the speedster's career. Rohit finds Ishant imitating Australian batsman Steve Smith with similar facial expressions hilarious.

The incident had happened during the 2017 Bengaluru Test and Rohit was watching the game at home. The moment was so funny he replayed it and watched Ishant's funny expressions multiple times on his television. 

Speaking of the incident Rohit said, "We have played with each other since under-19 days, so we have so much to talk about. But one thing which keeps me going and makes me laugh even now when I watch it is that incident with Steve Smith. 

"I wasn't part of that Test match and I was watching it from home. Luckily I was watching it on Tata Sky so I kept rewinding it and saw it like 100 times, and I still watch it."
