Ishant Sharma caught uploading CV on a job portal after he remained unsold in IPL 2018

The two day 2018 IPL players auction saw bidding of some overseas and Indian cricketers with a total of INR 431.7 crore being spent. The auction witnessed many sad moments too where players like Chris Gayle went unsold.

Medium fast bowler Ishant Sharma also remained unsold. While Chris Gayle has many other offers, Ishant Sharma was caught uploading his CV on a job portal.

In a not-so-shocking news, Ishant Sharma was not picked up by any of the teams even after two days of IPL auction. Reportedly, Ishant was quite sure about him being sold and that’s why he had refused many brand endorsements and advertisements that were scheduled to be shot during IPL.

A famous job portal, Shine dot com, in its new advertisement has shown Ishant Sharma as one of its users. After social media picked up the ad and news media covered it, it was revealed that Ishant Sharma indeed is one its users. Ishant Sharma had created his account and uploaded his CV soon after the IPL auctions got over.

Faking News reporter did some investigative journalism and found out the skills Ishant has mentioned in his CV. Ishant Sharma has chosen food delivery jobs as his first preference and has mentioned fast delivery as his one of his key skills. Though it deserves a good outrage but who doesn’t lie on his CV.

It seems Ishant Sharma has set a trend which has been followed by many other unsold players. Ashok Dinda, famous for his high jump, has also uploaded his CV with delivering items to high rise building tenants as his key capability.
