Ishan Kishan And KL Rahul: A great match was played between India and Pakistan on Wednesday (September 2) in the Asia Cup, in which rain intervened and the match was cancelled. In this match, Indian wicket-keeper batsman Ishaan won everyone’s heart. Ishaan was given a chance against Pakistan in the absence of KL Rahul, which he played a very brilliant innings while roasting it well. This innings of Ishaan can become a threat to KL Rahul.
In the match against Pakistan, Ishaan Kishan, batting at number five, played an inning of 82 runs in 81 balls with the help of 9 fours and 2 sixes. Ishaan came for batting in a very difficult time. India lost the third wicket in the form of Shreyas Iyer on the fifth ball of the 10th over, after which Ishaan came out to bat.
Ishaan proceeded his innings with great understanding and comfort. During this, Hardik Pandya, who was present at the other end, presented a brilliant batting display and the two shared a 138-run partnership for the fifth wicket. Ishaan Kishan, famous for his aggressive attitude, slowly progressed his innings and showed that he can bat even in such conditions. Ishaan did that work at number five, for which KL Rahul was considered to be the top.
KL Rahul has been dropped?
Ishaan Kishan’s brilliant innings against Pakistan will definitely put KL Rahul in trouble somewhere. By showing a good game against a strong bowling attack like Pakistan, Ishaan has staked a claim as a wicketkeeper for the upcoming World Cup 2023 to be held in India. KL Rahul was being touted as the first choice wicketkeeper for the World Cup.
Although Ishaan will be selected as a reserve wicket, but now he may not be seen only as a reserve wicketkeeper. Ishaan’s brilliant innings against Pakistan will surely make the selectors think. On the other hand, if we talk about KL Rahul, he has been out of the team for a long time due to his injury. In such a situation, there is a big question mark on his rhythm and match fitness.
Rahul has been included in the Asia Cup squad, but he will not play the first two matches due to a swallow. According to several media reports, the squad for the World Cup 2023 will be announced by India on 5 September. In such a situation, Ishaan Kishan can get a chance in the World Cup squad as the main wicketkeeper.
