Sharjah: T20 World Cup 2021 is going to start from October 17. India is considered to be a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup this year. For the T20 World Cup 2021, the selectors thought it more appropriate to place 23-year-old young batsman Ishan Kishan in place of Shikhar Dhawan, but this batsman’s performance in the current IPL has been very poor. However, Ishan Kishan scored 50 runs in 25 balls in the important match of IPL against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday.
The card of this player was going to be cut?
India is a balanced team. Despite the form Shikhar was in, Ishan Kishan was selected in the T20 World Cup squad. Ishan Kishan was running flops continuously before this match and there was pressure on him to perform well. In the crucial match of IPL against Rajasthan Royals, Ishan Kishan made an unbeaten 50 off 25 balls, saying goodbye to poor form.
Ishan Kishan played a stormy innings
Ishan Kishan said that after talking to Virat Kohli, his lost confidence has returned. Ishaan, who scored just 107 runs in eight matches before this match, was out of a few matches due to poor form. He made a comeback and scored an unbeaten half-century in 25 balls after playing ten dot balls in his innings.
Kohli’s one thing saved him
After the match, Ishan Kishan said, ‘It feels good to be back and scoring runs. We took the right decision of fielding first, because the ball was not coming on the bat well. On returning to his form, he said, ‘Ups and downs are part of the game. I spoke to Virat bhai, Hardik bhai and KP which brought back my confidence. Now we have to maintain this momentum in the next match.
