Ishan Kishan made his international debut against England.
In IPL 2021, big innings were not coming out of Ishan Kishan’s bat. But after talking to Virat Kohli, the game of this player changed completely. Before talking to Kohli, Kishan could score 107 runs in eight matches, but then Ishan Kishan hit two stormy half-centuries in a row. In these two matches, he blew 134 runs. Although his team Mumbai Indians was out of the group stage of IPL 2021, but before the T20 World Cup, Kishan is now seen in color again. Credit to Virat Kohli for transforming his game into this young left-handed batsman. He told that the Indian captain gave clear information about his role in the T20 World Cup. Kohli told Kishan that if he has been selected as an opener for the World Cup, then he should prepare accordingly. After this, when Kishne came back to the Mumbai team, he first scored an unbeaten 50 and then 84.
In a conversation with Star Sports after the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Ishan Kishan said, ‘Scoring runs before the World Cup and being in good color is a good thing for me and the team. I was very positive and my mind was also very clear. We had to score around 250-260 runs. Umran Malik’s ball in the direction of covers is my favourite. In this tournament, one has to keep himself ready for every situation. It is important to stay in the right mindset and have the best form.
I had a good conversation with my Virat bhai, Jaspreet bhai, which helped. Even Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard helped. Everyone helped and they said that this is the age of learning. Learn from here and don’t make these mistakes in World Cup matches. I was understanding one thing at a time. I love to open and that’s what Virat bhai said. He said that you have been selected as an opener, you prepare for that. On the big stage, you have to be ready for every situation.
Rohit also praised Ishaan
Against Hyderabad, Ishan Kishan scored 84 runs in 32 balls with 11 fours and four sixes. With the help of his runs, Mumbai made a big score of 235 runs for nine wickets.
