I believe it’s great to bat at both opening and first down: Ishan Kishan. Ishan resumed his aggressive style in the second T20I, scoring 52 off 32 balls to help India record an impressive total of 235/4.
Ishan Kishan has found fresh excitement in his recent promotion to number three, demonstrating his enjoyment as India’s opener. This comes on the heels of his back-to-back fifties against Australia in the present five-match T20I series.
Kishan has always been an opener for India in white-ball cricket. However, he was shifted to the middle order for the Asia Cup 2023, and this trend has continued in the current T20I series against Australia, where he has been handed the number three place.
Kishan did well in the first T20I, hitting 58 runs in Visakhapatnam
He demonstrated his versatility by smashing 30 runs off only 10 deliveries from leg-spinner Tanveer Sangha. In the second T20I, he maintained his aggressive style, scoring 52 off 32 balls to help India record an impressive total of 235/4. His collaboration with Ruturaj Gaikwad, who also hit fifty, created the groundwork for India’s massive total.
Kishan told Jio Cinema that batting at number three is equally as exciting as beginning the innings. He stressed that his new job allows him to analyze game situations and adjust his batting accordingly.
“I think it’s fun to bat at both opening and first down.” Because, you know, when you’re batting at one down, you know what game you have to play and what scenario you’re in. Because it was difficult for the batsman to come in and start rotating the strike at first,” Kishan said.
Kishan emphasized his collaboration with Gaikwad’s good communication.
