Ishan Kishan IPL 2022 Season For Mumbai Indians Just Got Worse With Bizarre Dismissal Against LSG. Kishan, who has been out for single digit scores in three of the last four matches. Dismissed in an unusual manner during Mumbai’s IPL 2022 loss to Lucknow Supergiants.
Ishan Kishan was the star of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 auction, with the Mumbai Indians (MI) paying INR 15.25 crore to secure the left-handed opener. It made him one of the most expensive players in T20 franchise cricket league history. Kishan, however, has failed to live up to the hype eight matches into the current season. He has only 199 hits with an average of 28.43 and a strike rate of 108.15. Kishan has failed to score more than 26 runs in the IPL 2022 after scoring half-centuries in the first two games.
His poor form has impacted MI’s performance as well, as the five-time champions have yet to win a game despite playing eight games. MI suffered their eighth defeat on Sunday against the Lucknow Supergiants, failing to chase down a modest target of 169. Kishan, too, struggled to get going, scoring only eight goals in 20 attempts.
What took the cake, however, was Kishan’s method of dismissal. Kishan had struggled to score eight runs off the first 19 balls when he decided to reach out to leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi’s wide delivery, only to inside edge the ball. The ball took the edge and rebounded off LSG wicketkeeper Quinton De Kock’s shoes before being caught at first slip by Jason Holder.

The dismissal stunned the MI camp, while the LSG camp rejoiced. Later, MI coach Mahela Jayawardene stated that the team is looking into Kishan’s lean patch.
“He has struggled a little, but we have allowed him to play his natural game. I haven’t spoken to him yet today, but I will do so soon “According to the former Sri Lankan player.
“I need to go over the batters’ stats. It has been a source of concern thus far, but since this is a senior group, we must continue to push. We want to keep the batting unit as consistent as possible.”
