‘Can’t ask Rohit-Rahul to drop from the team for me’, know why Ishaan said this?

New Delhi. Ishan Kishan played a brilliant innings of 76 runs in the first T20 against South Africa in Delhi. However, this innings of his also could not avoid the defeat of Team India. After this, the question was asked about the possibility of his Team India’s first choice opener, then he gave a very accurate answer on this. Kishan said that it would be ridiculous to see and think of himself as a first-choice opener in place of legendary batsmen like Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul.

Ishaan said in the post-match press conference, “Rohit-Rahul are world class players. When he is in the team, I will not ask for a place for myself. My job is to do my best in the practice session. Whenever I get a chance, I have to prove myself and do well for the team. That’s why my entire focus is on my sport. I am concentrating on what I have to do?”

‘Can’t ask Rohit-Rahul to be dropped from the team’
This Indian opener further said, “They (Rohit and Rahul) have scored so many runs for our country, I cannot ask them to drop themselves from the team and give me the opportunity to play as the first choice opener. Give it a chance I have to keep doing my job, it depends on the selectors and the coach what they think? My job is to perform better when given a chance.

Ishaan was seen struggling in the opening over.
It was not easy for Ishan to score 76 runs in the first T20 against South Africa. The ball was getting seamed in the first few overs and the spin bowlers were also getting good help. In such a situation, Ishaan also had to struggle to score runs. It can be gauged from this that his first three boundaries came from the edge of the bat.

Avesh Khan had to break the bat of the African batsman, Team India had to pay a big price!

Ishaan scored 76 runs
In the first five overs, Ishan was beaten at least five times. Many a times, due to the bowlers getting from the pitch, the annoyance of not scoring runs on many occasions dominated them and they got beat in the process of playing shots. However, in the 9th over, he hit two fours against Dwayne Pretorius and from here his game turned and Ishaan was seen in full color in the 13th over. He hit 2 sixes and as many fours in the first four balls of this over of Keshav Maharaj. Ishaan scored 76 runs in 48 balls before being dismissed. In this innings, he hit 11 fours and 3 sixes.
