In the game between the Rajasthan Royals and the Mumbai Indians, Navdeep Saini was seen crumpled up in pain after taking a fine catch in the field to eliminate Ishan Kishan, who looked threatening for a huge score. The speedster was given a chance in the starting XI after the Royals elected to go into the game with only three foreign players, and he did not get off to a great start, allowing a lot in his first over of the season. View this post on Instagram He did, however, take the wicket of Anmolpreet Singh and was ecstatic after returning off the final ball of his first over. At 149 kmph, Saini produced the fastest ball of the match as he's also recognised for clocking some extremely quick deliveries. When Tilak Varma top-edged one of Prasidh Krishna's balls, he had a 50-50 chance at a challenging catch while standing at mid-off, but he couldn't get hold of it. As far as the catch is concerned, Kishan and Varma were up and racing on the chase, robbing the Royals of the game. Sanju Samson's side needed a wicket badly, so the skipper brought in Trent Boult, the most likely pacer to get one. View this post on Instagram Kishan drew a short delivery from Boult into the deep square leg region, where Saini was a touch wider. The Delhi seamer made a fantastic catch, but in the process, he injured his head while sliding down. Despite a head injury, Saini came out to deliver the final over of the innings with 28 runs to defend, and he bowled brilliantly. With the field crowded in the offside, the 29-year-old started with two wides and allowed a four, but managed to bowl straight into the blockhole when it mattered.

Saini's spell ended with 2 for 36 in three overs, and he was also impressive on the field. After winning their second consecutive match of the tournament while also maintaining a strong Net Run Rate, Rajasthan Royals have found themselves to be at the very top of the IPL 2022 points table. Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians lost both their matches so far and are at seated at 9th place in the points table. View the full article
With the kind of innings that Ishan Kishan played in the first T20I against the touring Sri Lankan side, his perception has taken an absolute U-turn in the eyes of the critics so much so that some of them have even started placing him ahead of the former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the shortest format of the game. Kishan, who was bought by the Mumbai Indians for a whopping Rs. 15.25 crore during the IPL 2022 mega auction, was absolutely brilliant as the opening batter for the Men in Blue. During his time in the middle, he shared 89 runs in just 56 deliveries. His century was missed out when he gave away a huge top-edge on a pull-short and was caught by Janith Liyanage at square leg. View this post on Instagram Nonetheless, Kishan’s work on the pitch was good enough to help skipper Rohit Sharma’s side make a hefty total of 199-runs which proved too much for the Lankan Lions to chase within 20 overs. Kishan was also awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ aware at the end of the evening for putting on a show with his blade. It was later revealed to the cricketing community that the massive innings played by the 23-year old made him the owner of a new world record. His 89-run knock is now the highest individual score by any Indian wicketkeeper batter in the shortest format of the game that’s played at an international level. Ishan Kishan 89 runs - highest individual score by an Indian wicket-keeper in T20I. — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) February 24, 2022 In the past and the present, Team India has produced some brilliant hitters who have also donned the role of the man behind the stumps. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rishabh Pant are the leading names on the list in terms of heritage and their impact on the squad. Even KL Rahul, who acted as the squad’s glovesman a couple of years ago when Pant had suffered a head concussion, is an excellent player of this format. However, in terms of the number of haters each of these players have, Dhoni once again takes the top spot and it did not take his non-believers to simply start comparing his batting record with Kishan’s achievements from the first match against Sri Lanka. Dhobi has set such low standards in T2OI as wk batsman that everytime a wk batman comes to bat, a new record is created. — Alpha (@AlphaMaleKohli) February 24, 2022MS has 2 in 98. Surely an upgrade. — Eklavya (@IStanTheGOAT_18) February 24, 2022Dhoni would have easily scored a hundred if he opened against this kind of sl attack — Vikram (@Abhimanyu86156) February 24, 2022Best wicketkeeper batsman from jharkhand — Abhishek (@be_mewadi) February 24, 2022The narrative was that despite 98 international matches and batting in 85 of them, Dhoni’s highest score was just 56 runs, which was toppled by a huge margin by Kishan, who is just 8-matches old. While there are loads of issues with such comparisons, the biggest problem here is that while Kishan is a top-order batter and Dhoni was often played the role of the finisher. The southpaw generally opens the Indian batting order and therefore has more balls and greater freedom to take his time and go for bigger shots. Dhoni, on the other hand, never had the luxury of doing the same. His role was either to start swinging for the fences as he entered the ground to help his side chase down a total or to play a slow and sensible innings, act as the anchor that guides the innings in trouble and ensure to put enough runs on the board.

Ishan Kishan has done well for himself as an Indian cricketer who is rising through the ranks to make a space for himself in limited overs matches. From his wicket-keeping skills to his ability to smash long boundaries, he is turning out to be an excellent backup for Rishabh Pant and the Men in Blue. Earlier this week, Kishan got interviewed by the Mumbai Indians (MI) ahead of his practice for the remainder of the Indian Premier League 2021 season in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), in which he spoke about how he selects a bat before training. Whether he marks a particular bat which he feels the most comfortable with: View this post on Instagram “No, I don’t keep my bats marked to know which I’ve to use. But yes, I always know which is the one I have to pick. My debut bat is not with me here. I’ve sent it to SG because I want three more bats just like that to play with. If you own a lot of bats too, you get confused. You don’t know which to play with. Now I’m confused as to which bat to play with!” “Let me just pick a new bat today, what say? All my bats have the text “Om Sai Nath” written on it because I believe in him. I ask them to put it on my bat because I like it, it gives me confidence.” As it turns out, a lot of people are angry with the fact that Kishan believes in Sai Baba and did not think twice before blabbering their hate for the southpaw all over social media: Pseudo god.

(@hehehihi619) August 24, 2021 Kishan has always been a believer in Sai Baba. In fact, he even got a tattoo of the Shirdi spiritual master on his fight forearm, which gets noticed by the fans every time he enters the cricket ground to bat or keep wickets. Ishan Kishan has a tattoo of Sai Baba on his arm? Itna religious bachcha! — नम्रता (@_Namrataa) April 6, 2019 Ishan Kishan has a Sai Baba tattoo in his left arm. — Aravind (@netcitizen) September 6, 2018 Even his hand is tattooed with Sai Baba's face, much respect to him . — ηαмαη - ICT CSK (@Mr_unknown23_) August 24, 2021 I think he had a tatto of Sairam — Gautamm (@Gautamm_chary) August 24, 2021 In the first half of the IPL, Kishan played in five matches for the Mumbai Indians while scoring 73 runs in 88 balls faced. With a strike rate of 82.95, he wasn’t having the best of the seasons in the shortest format of the game. However, with the league getting disrupted due to a bio bubble breach, Kishan, along with all the other cricketers, got a break to rework their strategies and brush up on their skills. Kishan also got the opportunity to play for the Indian side during their tour of Sri Lanka and struck a half-century on his ODI debut. View the full article
When a team wins a significant match thanks to a combined effort of the team, picking one ‘Man of the Match’ becomes exponentially difficult for the decision-makers. A similar situation arose at the end of the second T20I between India and England when the hosting batsmen put on a show during the latter half of the match and snatched away a dominating win away from Eoin Morgan’s side. View this post on Instagram Spearheaded by T20I debutant Ishan Kishan and India captain Virat Kohli, the Men in Blue successfully chased down a decent 164-run England total with seven wickets and 13 balls to spare. Stepping onto the pitch for the very first time for the shortest format of the game, Kishan played with nerves of steel as he smashed five 4s and four 6s on his way to getting a half-century in his debut. View this post on Instagram What is more important than his impressive numbers was the predicament from which Kishan managed to pull out his team. After watching his opening batting partner KL Rahul drop off on a duck after facing six deliveries, Kishan took it upon himself to do all the major scoring while the skipper played second-fiddle during their partnership. While scoring at an astonishing strike rate of 175, it was safe to say that the point at which he left the pitch after getting trapped for an LBW by Adil Rashid in the 10th over of the innings, the rest of the batting order had a smooth-sailing to the end. View this post on Instagram However, Kohli, the highest scorer of the entire match, had also made a strong case for himself as the best player on the day. He showed the willingness to build a strong partnership with whoever he found on the other side of the pitch, kept himself safe while allowing his partners to go for bigger shots, and choosing his shots carefully too. One of the biggest reasons for his unbeaten 73-run stint in the middle was also the kind of struggles he was going through ahead until the second T20 (with three ducks in the last five innings). View this post on Instagram But at the end of the day, it was decided that it was would be Ishan Kishan who would be recognised as the ‘Man of the Match’. And while Kohli would not have cared more about this achievement and was rather delighted to see the young blood get recognised, fans of Virat Kohli and surprisingly MS Dhoni got into a Twitter battle: Virat, the man of the match, has called Ishan Kishan on stage to share the limelight. The captain watched Ishan bat from the best seat possible #INDvENG — Vikrant Gupta (@vikrantgupta73) March 14, 2021lol why would you give the MOM to Virat in the first place...Ishan was the one who done and dusted the game in the first 6 overs, What type of morons BCCI has commentators who make these decisions.... — HumRO (@humro66) March 14, 2021It's all about cricketing brains. Why MS was MOM in Wc11 final when Gauti had faced that vital stage. It's all about finishing, it's not over till the last run. — Anibesh Mohapatra (@anibesh) March 14, 2021@ishankishan51 won the match on his own. Ishan killed the game within less than 6-8 overs . After that only formality left.. @imVkohli was just there .. survive on mediocrity of @josbuttler keeping .
