Ishaan Kishan thanked Rishabh Pant after scoring a half-century
Kishan has hit his first Test half-century in 33 balls.
New Delhi. Ishaan Kishan got a chance to play in the Test series against the West Indies. In the first test, he had failed to leave his mark. In the debut Test innings, he opened the account in 20 balls. After this, he also had to listen to scolding from captain Rohit Sharma. But, in the second Test being played at Port of Spain, when he got a chance to bat at number 4 in place of Virat Kohli, he created a ruckus and hit the first fifty of his Test career. For this, Ishaan played only 33 balls. He completed his half-century with a six.
Ishaan Kishan talked about his half-century after the end of the fourth day’s play of the Port of Spain Test. During this, he thanked fellow wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, who was running out of Team India due to injury.
Ishaan said, “Before coming to the West Indies, I was at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. Rishabh Pant was also there. He gave me some tips regarding batting. Told how I should keep the bat position. We have been playing cricket together since under-19. He knows a lot about my batting. So he suggested me about the bat position. Will be thankful for that.
