Profile

If we are to interconnect Jharkhand and cricket, the one invariable outcome that would come in all our minds is MS Dhoni. However, there is another lad, who is following the mighty MS in his footsteps. Ishan Kishan is not just a cricketer who hails from Jharkhand but just like
Mahi, he is a promising wicket-keeper and a hard bludgeoner of the ball.


All this at the ripe age of 22 is a big positive indicator for India, as with more experience in the anvil, he can very truly become a non-negotiable fit in the Indian team. And just like Dhoni, he has displayed a possible potency to captain a team, by leading the India Under-19 side to the finals of the 2016 World Cup.


Although he did not impress with the bat in the tournament, he made up for the same by amassing a total of 799 runs in the following Ranji Trophy season. Kishan also achieved his career best of 273 in the same season, against Delhi, which is the highest by any batsman from Jharkhand.


Kishan has age very much on his side and some noteworthy knocks in the Indian T20 League will do his national aspirations a greater good. With Dhoni retiring from all forms of international cricket, Kishan stands a good opportunity to replace his senior in the side. But with competition from Pant and Rahul for the wicket-keeper’s position, Kishan will have to more than punch above his weight, in order to make an international debut and then sustain his place in the squad.


An explosive batsman by default, the Indian T20 League is a perfect setting for this young lad to stamp his name and presence among global heavyweights in the game. Kishan featured for Gujarat in 2017 and his decent run there earned him a goldmine in the auctions to follow for the next season.


Mumbai lapped him up for an astonishing 6.2 crores in the 2018 auctions. Although not very consistent with the bat in his performances, Kishan’s big-hitting potency and the odd flashes meant that the young lad would prove to be a very vital asset in the years to come by. In the 2020 season, Kishan would look to prove his mettle and pitch his bidding for the national side strongly.
