Youngster Ishan Kishan is in terrific form at the moment, hitting three half-centuries in all three ODIs against West Indies. Courtesy of his brilliant performance, India managed to win the series 2-1 and most importantly, the cricketer more or less has made his case strong in India’s squad for the upcoming big tournaments.
Meanwhile, former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer believes that the 25-year-old still needs to improve in order to get better. He cited examples of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli and mentioned that the Ranchi-born cricketer should learn the art of converting his starts into big hundreds.
“Getting three fifties in three games, you would say that he is the third opener in line, and obviously the second wicketkeeper also going forward. He did his chances no harm. But he needs to learn to convert those starts into big hundreds. That’s what the Indian batters need to learn from Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli,” Jaffer told ESPNcricinfo.
I should’ve stayed in and scored big: Kishan
After the third ODI, the cricketer himself opened up and stated that he should have been cautious in order to play long innings. He added saying that he has learned this in this series and will be trying his best to convert his starts from the upcoming ones.
“Not so happy with the finishing that I gave. I was supposed to score big after being set. That’s what my seniors told me, I should’ve stayed in and scored big. That’s what I’ll try next time, I’ll get set in the middle and score big. It’s important at this level to get set. It’s important to forget the last game and start from 0,” Kishan told in the post-match presentation.
