This player will single-handedly make India win the World Cup
Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar has considered Ishan Kishan as the biggest and most dangerous weapon of Team India. Talking to India Today, Sunil Gavaskar said, ‘Ishan Kishan has cemented his place in the middle order of Team India. Ishan Kishan also gives you the option of a left-handed batsman. If we look at the top 4 batsmen of India, no one bats with the left hand. Hardik Pandya is also a right handed batsman. In such a situation, having left-handed batsman Ishan Kishan at number 5 in the middle order of Team India is a wise decision.
Sunil Gavaskar also told the most deadly weapon
Sunil Gavaskar said, ‘An opening batsman can fit himself in the middle order also. This is its biggest beauty. Ishaan Kishan has also shown its trailer to everyone. In the Group A match of Asia Cup 2023 against Pakistan, Ishan Kishan played an excellent inning of 82 runs at number 5 under pressure. Ishan Kishan reads the situation and likes to play shots accordingly. He is someone who uses his brain, reads the situation and plays accordingly.
Hit at every number in batting
Let us tell you that 25-year-old Ishan Kishan played a mature inning of 82 runs while batting at number five in difficult conditions in the group stage match of Asia Cup 2023 against Pakistan. However, this left-handed batsman opens the innings for Jharkhand in domestic matches and Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL). A left-handed batsman, Kishan can bat at any position from number one to number five and always makes his presence felt as a wicketkeeper. This is the reason why he is included in the Indian team as the second wicketkeeper batsman after KL Rahul for the World Cup 2023.
