Ishaan Kishan, who went on a tour of Sri Lanka as a wicket-keeper batsman, has been impressed with both his batting and wicket-keeping. In the first T20 International match of the three-match series against Sri Lanka, fans remembered Mahendra Singh Dhoni as Ishaan stumped Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka in the first T20 International. Former India captain Dhoni, who is known for fasting behind the wicket, has stumped so many batsmen. Dasun Shanaka lifted a little leg and Ishaan did not let go of the opportunity and quickly came out to give India an eighth wicket.
The 18th over of Sri Lanka’s innings, Varun Chakraborty came to bowl the last over of his quota. Shanaka was beaten on the fourth delivery of the over and the ball reached Ishaan’s gloves, Shanaka lifted a little from the crease, at which point Ishaan bailed out and gave India his eighth wicket. With this wicket, Sri Lanka’s hopes of winning the match ended. Varun Chakraborty took one wicket for 28 runs in four overs. With Ishaan Kishan batting and wicketkeeping, it seems that he could be included in Team India for the T20 World Cup.
Ishaan plays for the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Based on his outstanding performances in IPL and domestic cricket, he is ranked in the limited-overs team India. Speaking about the match, Sri Lanka won the toss and invited India to bat first. India were 164 for five in 20 overs. In reply Sri Lanka were all out after scoring 126 in 18.3 overs. After a 38-run win, India took a 1-0 lead in the series.
