Ishan Kishan’s bat scored runs
Ishan Kishan said after the match, ‘Ups and downs are part of the game, we were going through a bad phase. I talked to Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma about my batting. After that I watched my old videos, which helped me a lot. Ishan Kishan told that he had seen his old videos at the behest of Pollard.
Let us tell you that Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma brought Ishan Kishan on the opening against Rajasthan. Rohit dropped Quinton de Kock from the playing XI and gave Ishan an opportunity to open and this decision of Rohit went in favor of this batsman. Ishan Kishan had a slow start against Rajasthan Royals. Ishan Kishan did not even open the account on the first 6 balls. Chetan Sakariya, who was throwing the second over, removed the entire over maiden in front of Ishan Kishan, but this left-handed batsman remained mentally strong. On seeing Ishan Kishan’s bat, the strokes started coming out. In the over of Chetan Sakariya, Ishan hit 2 sixes and a four and in the 9th over he hit a six off Mustifizur Rahman to complete his half-century and also gave the team victory.
Ishan Kishan told after the match that now Mumbai’s eyes are fixed on Kolkata’s match. If Kolkata gets defeated, then Mumbai Indians can qualify for the playoffs by winning their last match. If Kolkata gets the win, then it will be almost impossible for Mumbai to go to the playoffs.
