‘Numbers don’t always tell whole story’: Ex-IND pacer critical of Ishan Kishan | Cricket

Ishaan Kishan showed good intentions but experts believe there is still room for improvement in the 23-year-old’s batting.

The India vs South Africa series saw a slow start for Men in Blue, losing two T20Is before they bounced back to flat terms. The series was being played in the absence of several key players, which allowed management to test their bench ability.

While many passed the exam, there were some concerns, especially with Rishabh Pant’s leadership getting flak from every corner.

However, some people with inconsistent IPLs, made good use of the outing and made an exciting comeback. One of them was Ishan Kishan, who finished the series as the leading run-scorer, scoring 206 runs at a strike-rate of 150.36 over five games.

In fact, Ashish Nehra, India’s former fast bowler, was more critical and claimed that the starters did not have much confidence throughout the series despite ending up as a leading run-scorer.

“Ishaan Kishan’s numbers are good in this series, but the numbers don’t always tell the whole story. He has played with a good strike rate, but it’s not easy for a player like him to do that constantly, especially in the T20Is, but his runs should be impressive. He scored 76 in the first game, but he was comfortable He wants to turn his start into big scores, ”noted the former India pacer. An interaction Crickbuzz.

Former India wicketkeeper-batter Parthiv Patel made a similar observation. “Ishaan Kishan has scored 400 plus runs in IPL 2022 and has performed well in this series. But his aggressive approach in the IPL is missing. He hit two sixes in the over and that should be his next path.
