Ishan Kishan looks to cement his place in Team India behind Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul


The
Indian
team
management
looks
at
Kishan
as
a
specialist
opener,
knowing
that
he
isn’t
the
one
blessed
with
a
power
game
to
negotiate
the
variations
during
back-end
of
T20I
games.

After
his
48-ball-76
in
a
losing
cause
against
South
Africa,
which
was
blazing
most
of
the
times
and
scratchy
in
some
parts,
Kishan
pledged
to
control
the
controllables.

“They
(Rohit
Sharma
and
KL
Rahul)
are
world-class
players
and
I
won’t
ask
for
my
spot
when
they
are
there
in
the
team.
They
have
scored
so
many
runs
for
our
country,
I
cannot
ask
them
to
drop
themselves
and
make
me
play
in
the
first
place,”
Kishan
said
at
the
post-match
press
conference.

“My
job
here
is
to
give
my
best
in
the
practice
session.
Whenever
I
get
my
opportunity,
I
have
to
prove
myself
or
do
well
for
the
team.
I
focus
more
on
that
on
what
I
have
to
do,”
Kishan
added.

For
him,
it
is
all
about
performing
whenever
he
gets
an
opportunity
and
allow
the
coaches
and
selectors
to
do
their
job.

“I
have
to
keep
doing
my
thing,
it’s
up
to
the
selectors
and
the
coaches
whatever
they
think,
but
my
job
is
to
give
my
best
whenever
I
get
my
chance,”
he
added.

On
his
strategy,
the
23-year-old
stated:
“We
knew
that
the
wicket
is
not
easy
for
the
batters
to
get
going.
My
plan
was
to
target
the
loose
balls
and
put
pressure
on
the
bowlers.
So,
that
they
are
also
thinking
and
move
their
line
and
length.”

Despite
the
batters
putting
up
a
massive
211
on
the
board,
the
Indian
bowlers
struggled
to
defend
the
target
on
what
was
a
batting
belter.

The
home
team’s
woes
were
compounded
when
Shreyas
Iyer
dropped
a
sitter
with
van
der
Dussen,
who
was
on
29
at
that
point,
went
on
to
score
an
unbeaten
75.

“We
need
to
address
what
mistakes
we
did
with
the
bowling
department
or
if
it’s
the
fielding
department,
but
it’s
never
any
one
player
who,
you
know,
makes
us
lose
the
match.
So
we’ll
figure
out
everything
as
a
team,”
Kishan
came
to
his
colleague’s
defence.
