Ishant can overtake Lee: Fleming

February 11, 2008 10:56 IST

Impressed by Ishant Sharma's exploits, former Australian pacer Damien Fleming said the beanpole Indian has it in him to become the best bowler around.

Fleming saw Ishant repeatedly running through the Australian top order both in the Test and ongoing one day tri-series with home team captain Ricky Ponting running the risk of becoming his bunny.

Effusive in his praise for the Delhi youngster, Fleming said the lanky pacer could well become the premier bowler of his era, overtaking the likes of Australian spearhead Brett Lee and South African pacer Dale Steyn.

"He's going to be a big factor for India's bowling stocks for years to come," Fleming was quoted as saying by Herald Sun.
