Ishaan Kishan hit a half-century in the Port of Spain Test
He completed his fifty by hitting a six in just 33 balls.
New Delhi, India has given West Indies a target of 365 runs to win the second Test being played in Port of Spain. Chasing this, the Caribbean team also lost two wickets in scoring 76 runs at the end of the fourth day’s play. On the last day, West Indies will need 289 runs to win and India will need 8 more wickets to seal the series. On the fourth day, India played England’s baseball cricket
left behind. Especially captain Rohit Sharma and wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan batted in a T20-like manner in Tests. Rohit hit the fastest fifty of his Test career. He completed his 50 runs in just 35 balls. So Ishaan turned out to be faster than him and hit the first fifty of his Test career in less than 2 balls.
The importance of this innings of Ishaan Kishan is also because of this. Because in the first Test innings, he played 20 balls to open the account and captain Rohit Sharma declared the innings as soon as his one run was completed. In the first test, Ishaan had to be scolded by the captain for slow batting, but in the second test, Ishaan completed the task of the first test by hitting fifty in 33 balls. During this innings, Ishaan reminded wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who was out of the team due to injury. The bat with which he was batting had ‘RP 17’ written on it. This is Rishabh Pant’s name and his jersey number.
That’s a smashing way to bring your maiden Test 50*@ishankishan51
