Wicketkeeper batsman Ishan Kishan, who was a part of the Indian team in the ODI World Cup 2023, got a chance to play only in the first 2 matches during the entire tournament. After this, Ishaan was now included in the playing 11 of the first match of the five-match T20 series being played against Australia. Ishaan showed the magic of his bat as soon as he came on the field and played a brilliant inning of 58 runs in just 39 balls. While talking about his innings during the post-match press conference, Ishaan said that he had already decided to take an aggressive stance against Australian spin bowler Tanveer Sangha.
I was continuously practicing on the nets during the World Cup.
Ishan Kishan said during the press conference after the Indian team’s spectacular victory in the first T20 match against Australia that during the World Cup, when I was not playing, I asked myself before every practice session, what is important for me now. . What can I do? I practiced a lot on the net. I was constantly talking to the coach about the game, how to take the match till the end, how to target certain bowlers. Regarding his aggressive stance against Australian leg spinner Tanvir Sangha in this match, Ishaan said that being a left-handed batsman, I was in a good position against the leg spinner. I knew what the wicket was like because I had kept wicket for 20 overs. When you are chasing a target of 209 runs, you have to target a bowler against whom you can play big shots.
I had decided that I would play big shots
In his statement, Ishan Kishan further said that I had talked to captain Suryakumar Yadav and told him that I will play big shots against this bowler. Then wherever he bowls, we have to reduce the difference between runs and the ball. You cannot leave too many runs for the tail batsmen. It will not be easy for him to come straight and play big shots. I had to take risks and I had to believe in myself. We lost two wickets early and the partnership was very important. I also played in the same team with Surya Bhai in IPL so I know how he plays, what shots he can play. When you play against Australia, it is a pressure match. Overall I think we were pretty good.
