Ishan Kishan Likely To Bat In Middle-Order Against New Zealand


Ishan Kishan, who made headlines by being left out after his world record double century, is expected to return to the playing eleven, albeit in a different batting position when India takes on New Zealand in a three-match ODI series commencing here Wednesday.

Kishan had to miss the Sri Lanka series despite completing the fastest double century in ODI history against Bangladesh in the previous series.

Shubman Gill, who was chosen ahead of Ishan to open alongside skipper Rohit Sharma as a reward for his consistency, took advantage of the opportunities by scoring 70, 21, and 116 runs in the Sri Lanka series.

No adjustments to the opening lineup are anticipated for the match against New Zealand, but KL Rahul’s absence due to personal issues frees up a spot for Kishan because he will also likely keep wickets.

In his 10 ODI games, Kishan has batted in the middle order three times, so the transition shouldn’t be difficult.

In Rahul’s absence, KS Bharat, the team’s second wicketkeeper, is most likely to sit on the bench and warm up.

Ishan Kishan hits the fastest double-hundred:

On December 10, Ishan Kishan made history by scoring the fastest double-hundred in ODI history. Kishan hit 210 from 131 balls in an ODI match for India against Bangladesh in Chattogram. In a remarkable performance of batsmanship, the left-handed batsman hit 24 fours and 10 maximums.

Every game counts in a World Cup year, and India would like to build on their advantages from the Sri Lanka series, despite their opponents’ disappointing performance.

The top three’s performance and Mohammed Siraj’s ability to pick up wickets with the new ball were the key takeaways for India from the Sri Lanka series.

With scores of 83 and 42, Rohit appeared to be in excellent form, much like Gill and Virat Kohli, but he would still like to reach a huge hundred, which has also eluded him for some time.

The fact that Kohli is once again consistently scoring hundreds and appears to be more hungry than ever for runs should raise caution flags in the New Zealand camp.
