Ishan Kishan’s brilliant efforts with the bat helped his team Mumbai Indians take the game into Super-Overs against Royal Challengers Bangalore last night. It was the first appearance of Ishan Kishan in the IPL 2020 and he gave the best of his capabilities as he put his batting skills into the display and rained fours and sixes at the Dubai International Stadium.
Mumbai Indians, who were chasing a total of 201 runs, got off to a worst possible start to their innings as they lost wickets in quick successions until Ishan walked in. The left-handed batsman walked in and took the match by storm. He played a stunning knock of 99 runs and took his side to almost finish line.
Mumbai Indians needed 78 for 4 when Kieron Pollard joined Ishan Kishan on-field. Both the cricketers formed a formidable partnership and rained fours and sixes to all the corners of the ground. However, the magical knock soon came to end after Kishan was dismissed on a heartbreaking 99 runs.
Despite playing an innings of his life as he registered his highest IPL score, Ishan Kishan couldn’t take his team to victory. However, he is being termed as the hero of the match.
Later, after the match came to an end, social media was flooded with amazing tweets and posts for Ishan Kishan for his brilliant efforts with the bat. Among many Ishan Kishan’s rumored girlfriend Aditi Hundra also took to her social media and posted a heartfelt message for Ishan Kishan.
While Ishan Kishan couldn’t take his team to the victory side, his girlfriend was very proud of him. In her post, Aditi Hundia shared a clip of the batsman walking off the field. Sharing the clip, Aditi wrote:
