Ishan Kishan: ‘If you want me to play in place of Rohit’… Ishan Kishan’s pain for not getting selected in Asia Cup


Indian cricket team’s young wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan has not been included in the T20 Asia Cup squad. Earlier, he was with the team on tour of England and West Indies. Although here too he rarely got a chance to play in the playing XI. Ishaan’s performance in T20 Internationals this year has been excellent but due to his not being selected in the Asia Cup, many things started going on about him. However, Ishaan himself has now broken the silence about not being selected in the team. While talking to the news agency, Ishaan said, ‘The decision taken by the selectors has been taken thoughtfully. It is they who decide where to give a chance and who not. When he feels that I should be in the team, he will definitely choose me.

He said, ‘I have not been selected in the team, it is only good for me. Now I will work harder and score runs. As soon as the selectors have faith in me, I will definitely get a place in the team. Ishaan said, ‘If you want Rohit to sit and I play in his place, then your question may be justified but everything is not in my hands.’
