'You're Not MS Dhoni': Ishan Kishan Told On-Air By Ex-India Opener. His Timely Remark Goes Viral - Watch
Ishan Kishan, a wicketkeeper-batter, had a successful West Indies tour. In every ODI, he scored a half-century. The wicketkeeper-batter's half-century in the third ODI also saw him join an elite group that includes MS Dhoni, Dilip Vengsarkar, and Mohammed Azharuddin, among others.
He is the most recent Indian hitter to score fifty in all three bilateral ODIs. During a stumping appeal, he had an unintentionally humorous conversation with former India opener Aakash Chopra, who was commentating on the game.
"It's unusual to review the stumping and run out dismissal. So far, I'm only seeing feet on the ground. "You may be from Ranchi, but your name is not MS Dhoni," Aakash Chopra stated live on TV.
While something was being said, Ishan could be heard on the stump-mic saying, "Ha, fir thik hai." (Then it's fine.)"
"How lovely, Ishan. "We love you," Chopra responded, breaking out in laughter with the other analysts.
The video of the incident was shared by Chopra himself.
Kishan was also named Player of the Series. Then Kishan said, "I'm not too happy with the way I finished. I thought I would get a big score after being set. My seniors told me that I should have stayed in and done well. Next time, I'll try to get in the middle and make a big score.
At this stage, it's important to get ready. It's important to forget what happened in the last game and start over. I thought about going one ball at a time. (About Shubman Gill) I've seen him pass the ball, and he's a great player. When I see him hit the ball out of the middle, it gives me a lot of faith.
"At this level, it's always important to win, and the lessons from these games are important. We wanted to get wickets quickly, so we didn't let any ball go. Everyone seems to be in a good mood. I've played in a few events here, so I know how the wickets work.
The next T20 world cup isn't really on my mind. You are thinking about the future tournaments because you know that one tournament can change your life. Now, we're just concentrating on that," he said.
