India’s young opener, Ishan Kishan has given a stunning reply to former India opener Aakash Chopra’s comment.
Moreover, the 25-year-old has smashed fifties in all three ODIs against the West Indies and amassed a total of 184 in the series.
He also joined an elite list of players that includes the names of MS Dhoni, Dilip Vengsarkar, and Mohammed Azharuddin as the player to hit 50s in all three games of a bilateral ODI series.
However, during a stumping decision in the 3rd ODI, a funny conversation between Kishan and Chopra emerged that had the internet in splits.
In actuality, both of them weren’t talking to each other but Chopra made a comment in which he said that Kishan might be from Ranchi, but he’s not MS Dhoni.
To this, Kishan immediately replied that it was okay then. This made Aakash Chopra praise him even more.
It’s very rare that you review the stumping and run out dismissal. So far, I am seeing the feet on the ground. You can come from Ranchi, but your name is not MS Dhoni.
Ha, fir thik hai. (Then it’s okay)
How sweet Ishan. We love you.
Kishan feels that he did not give a good finishing touch to his innings
Adjudged the Player of the Series, Kishan wasn’t too happy with the finishing that he gave to this series.
He feels that he couldn’t follow the advice of his seniors properly but will try to be a better version of himself in the next one.
Not so happy with the finishing that I gave. I was supposed to score big after being set. That’s what my seniors told me, I should’ve stayed in and scored big. That’s what I’ll try next time, I’ll get set in the middle and score big.
On the other hand, Kishan was full of praise for his fellow opener, Shubman Gill, and said that the latter is a tremendous player.
Meanwhile, Gill and Kishan made the highest opening partnership in the West Indies by an Indian pair as they made 143 runs in the final ODI.
He’s a tremendous player, I’ve seen how he middles the ball. Seeing him hitting it out of the middle gives me a lot of confidence as well.
