India vs South Africa: The Indian team had to face defeat by 7 wickets in the first T20 match against South Africa. In the match, Shreyas Iyer dropped the catch of South African batsman Rasi van Dusen, due to which the match went into his lap. Now Ishaan Kishan has given a big statement on this.
Ishaan Kishan gave this statement
When asked about this, Ishan Kishan said in the post-match press conference, ‘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.
South Africa is the best team
Ishan Kishan 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 credit for the victory. He said that 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.
Said this thing for Rahul-Rohit
Ishan Kishan said, ‘KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma are world class batsmen and so experienced. I don’t 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. The rest is the work of the selectors. He said, ‘My goal was to put pressure on the bowlers from the beginning and play aggressively from the first ball. I advised loose balls and carried the run-rate.
South Africa won the match
Batting first, India scored 211 for four, but an unbeaten century partnership between van der Dusen and David Miller helped South Africa win by seven wickets with five balls to spare. Miller played 64 not out in 31 balls and Van der Dussen scored 75 runs in 46 balls. Van der Dusen was given life by Shreyas Iyer on the score of 29 on the ball of Avesh Khan, which cost India dearly.
