Ishan Kishan made his debut for team India in 2021 in the T20I series against England and came up with a superb half-century in his maiden T20I game. Since then, he has been a regular part of India’s T20I setup and has delivered the goods for them across multiple T20I series.
His numbers bear testament to the talent he has as he has gone on to score 4 half-centuries in the 19 T20Is he has played so far. He averages just above 30 in T20Is but his strike rate is a massive 131.16 in the format. More importantly, he suits the team’s new brand of aggressive cricket and can take the game away from the opposition from ball one.
It will not be wrong to say that Ishan Kishan has been sacrificed due to the problem of plenty. Ideally, he should’ve definitely been a part of the squad designated for Asia Cup 2022.
