India skipper Rohit Sharma has high hopes from young wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan and hinted that he will be given more opportunities in Test cricket to hone his skills. Ishan made his debut in the First Test against the West Indies at Roseau which India won by an innings and 141 runs. Rohit said he was impressed with Ishan’s wicketkeeping against spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.
Rohit Sharma is impressed with Ishan
The Indian team will play the second Test from Thursday. Asked about Ishan’s performance in the first Test, Rohit said, “Ishan is very talented. We have seen this in his short career. He has recently scored 200 runs in ODI cricket. He has talent and we have to nurture him. “He said,” We have to give him chances. He is a left-handed batsman and plays aggressive cricket. “He said,” I have spoken to him openly about how I want to see him play. I have given him complete freedom. This is also our job.
Rohit praised Ishan’s wicketkeeping
By the time India declared the first innings, Ishan could play only 20 balls. Rohit said he was very impressed with Ishan’s wicketkeeping, especially when the ball was turning. He said, “I would like to talk about his wicketkeeping. He kept wickets brilliantly despite playing the first test. Keeping wickets in front of Ashwin and Jadeja on a turn taking pitch was not easy. I am very impressed with him.
The Indian captain said, “He could only score one run because we had to declare the innings. We want the top-order batsmen to bat for a long time. If given a chance, Ishan is also ready to play long innings. “He said,” We have faith in him and he is the future of Indian cricket who will take Indian cricket to new heights.
