Ishan Kishan has made a strong comeback in the South Africa T20 series after a bad IPL season. Kishan’s bat scored 75 runs in 46 balls in Delhi T20. However, Ishan’s innings did not work for Team India and South Africa also achieved the target of 212 runs five balls before losing 3 wickets. Team India definitely lost but there are discussions everywhere about Ishan’s batting. However, this batsman says that despite such innings, he does not feel sure of his place in the playing XI. Ishan Kishan admitted in the post-match press conference that it would be difficult for him to get this opportunity when KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma return and he does not even expect it.
Ishan Kishan will be ruled out of Rahul-Rohit’s comeback
Ishan Kishan said, Rahul and Rohit are world class batsmen and so experienced. I do not even expect that when he returns I will get a chance to open the innings . My job is to give my best whenever I get a chance. Rest is the job of the selectors. Regarding his half-century innings, Ishaan said, “My goal was to put pressure on the bowlers from the beginning and play aggressively from the very first ball.” I advised loose balls and carried forward the run rate.
Ishan Kishan came to the rescue of Shreyas Iyer
Ishan Kishan also defended Shreyas Iyer, who had dropped a catch of Rasi van der Dussen on a personal score of 29. Ishan Kishan believes that the blame for defeat should not be put on this. Ishaan said, ‘It would be wrong to say that we lost the match only because of missing that catch. It is true that matches are won by taking catches but it would be wrong to blame a player . We have to assess what mistakes we made in bowling or fielding. Let us tell you that Miller scored 64 in 31 balls and Van der Dussen played unbeaten innings of 75 runs in 46 balls and Team India got defeated.
Ishan Kishan further said, ‘We should also not forget that South Africa are a great team and have been performing well for some time now. He has come here with his entire strong team and he also has very good finishers. He should be given the credit for the victory. He also admitted that in the remaining four matches, India will have to make a special strategy against these two batsmen. He said, ‘Miller has continued his form in the IPL and if these two batsmen get into the rhythm then it is very difficult to stop them. Of course, we have to make a special strategy against them in the rest of the matches.
