Ishan Kishan, who played only 2 matches in the ODI World Cup 2023, impressed everyone with his performance in the first match of the five-match T20 series against Australia. In this match, Ishaan, along with captain Suryakumar Yadav at the crucial time, made an important contribution in giving the team a 1-0 lead in the series by making a match-winning partnership of 112 runs for the third wicket. In this match, Ishaan played a brilliant inning of 58 runs in 39 balls which included 2 fours and 5 sixes. On the basis of this inning, Ishaan broke a special record of Rishabh Pant and also created a new record as an Indian wicketkeeper batsman.

Ishaan left Pant behind in this matter

When Ishan Kishan came on the field to bat in the first T20 match against Australia, while chasing 209 runs, the Indian team had lost its first wicket at the score of 11 and shortly after this, the team got the second blow at the score of 22. It also took place. From here, Ishaan, along with captain Suryakumar, not only took charge of the innings but also started the process of scoring runs at a rapid pace. Ishaan has now become the player to hit the most number of sixes in an innings as an Indian wicket-keeper batsman in T20 International. Earlier this record was in the name of Rishabh Pant, who had hit four sixes during his innings in a match against West Indies.

On the basis of his half-century innings, Ishaan has equaled MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant in another record. This was Ishaan’s second half-century as a wicketkeeper batsman in T20 International. With this, he has now become the third Indian wicketkeeper along with Dhoni and Pant to score 2 half-centuries. In this case, the first place in the list is KL Rahul, who has so far played three half-century innings while playing the role of wicketkeeper.

Ishaan’s half-century came after 16 innings in T20 International

The last 16 innings in T20 International were nothing special for Ishan Kishan with the bat, in which he could only play the maximum innings of 37 runs. During this period, Ishaan could not even reach double figures 7 times. In such a situation, this inning of 58 runs in this match will definitely help in boosting his confidence.
