India A vs South Africa A: Young Ishan Kishan is being considered as the future wicketkeeper, but with Rishabh Pant around, it will not be easy. But, looks like Ishan Kishan is making a strong point to the selectors as and when he is getting his opportunity. During the recent India-A game against South Africa-A, Kishan showcased his brilliance as he took a one-handed screamer to send Reeza Hendricks packing for nine off 14 balls. Hendricks looked to guide it to the third man for a single but instead managed to get a very fine edge that was caught by the young Turk. Deepak Chahar was the bowler, but even he would know the wicket belongs to Kishan.
Here is the video:
Kishan has been in great form with the bat as well. He hit a quickfire 24-ball 55 in the second unofficial ODI to help the hosts take a commendable 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Kishan has grown in the last couple of seasons as a cricketer. He is a regular at the Mumbai Indians during the IPL and is a promising cricketer who is taking giant strides in cricket. Kishan would be hoping that during India’s home season, he gets a look in the senior team.
