‘I can’t really just go out and start banging right away’ – Ishan Kishan on his role in Test cricket

Ishan Kishan has always been an explosive batsman by nature and it showed when he hit an incredible double hundred in a recent ODI against Bangladesh.

However, the 24-year-old believes he needs to be a little more cautious with his approach if he gets a chance in India’s starting XI for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy next month.

Speaking to Shubman Gill in a video posted by BCCI on Instagram, Ishan Kishan had this to say about his approach to red ball cricket:

“The position I’m batting at, which is 6th, I can’t really just go out there and hit it right away because I’m going to let my team down if I lose my wicket. So it will be important for me to read the situation and put my team in a better position. If the ball is there to be hit and the field is up then I’ll definitely try to play my natural game.”

I love playing in situations like this: Ishan Kishan on Red-Ball Cricket

Although Ishan Kishan loves to hit the ball on all parts of the ground, he feels red ball cricket is a different challenge that he enjoys. The youngster spoke about various situations a batter encounters during a red ball game. He stated:

“I love playing red ball cricket because the ball always plays a bit, there’s sledding, there’s a lot of time in the game and there are different situations that you encounter as a batsman. Sometimes it’s easy to score runs, while sometimes it’s difficult. I love playing in Ranji Trophy situations like that.”

India’s Test squad for the first two Tests against Australia: Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (Vice-Captain), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KS Bharat (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), R. Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, mode Shami, Mohd. Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Suryakumar Yadav.

Note: Ravindra Jadeja’s inclusion in the roster is subject to fitness.
