  • In February 2023, on Cricbuzz’s ‘Rise of New India’ show, he recalled his lowest moment and said that it was a match against Australia in Mohali in 2013 in which he gave 30 runs in an over; James Faulkner smashed four sixes and a boundary in that over. He said,
    My lowest moment was that 2013 match in Mohali against Australia. I don’t know if I could ever have a moment worse than that because I was…I don’t know. It was very tough for me. And it wasn’t because I gave away a lot of runs. The thing that hurt me the most was I was the reason behind the team’s loss. I was dating my wife at that time and I just spoke to her and I think I just cried for almost a month. I used to call her every day and cry over the phone saying that team lost because of me.”Ishant also talked about MS Dhoni and Shikhar Dhawan who helped him recover from that ‘absolute low.’ Ishant added,The good thing that happened was Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) came to my room and Shikhar (Dhawan), who was playing that game, also came and said, ‘Look you have been doing well (Dekh, tu acha khel raha hai).’ Because of that one match there became a perception that I am not a white-ball bowler.” [3]
  • In 2023, he made his IPL comeback after two years and delivered an impressive performance in the tournament while playing for Delhi Capitals.
