Ishant Sharma's father Vijay Kumar insisted that his son was not so aggressive in the early days of his career.
"Yes, what Ishant did on the field was not good. He has been rightly punished by the ICC. Ishant should have controlled his emotions," his father Vijay Kumar said from Delhi. (Also read: 'Ishant Sharma's behaviour a pathetic example of aggression')
"He was never so aggressive during his childhood days. Perhaps, in the excitement he was overjoyed and crossed the limit and in the heat of the moment, lost temper," Sharma added.
