ENG vs IND: Why is Ishan Kishan Not Playing Today?


Ishan Kishan ENG vs IND: In a massive breaking news update, Indian opening batsman Ishan Kishan is not playing the second T20I encounter against England scheduled to be contested at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. The Rohit Sharma-led Indian team continued their fabulous run in the shorter format of the game with an incredible 50-run win over England in the opening T20I encounter on Thursday. India now have a crucial 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series against England.

ENG vs IND: Why is Ishan Kishan Not Playing Today?

As expected, Team India have made some wholesome changes to their playing combination from the last victory in the first T20I match. This also means that Ishan Kishan, who was the highest run-getter for India during the recent home T20I series against South Africa, is currently warming the bench. The left-handed batsman notched up two impressive half-centuries in that series against Proteas. However, he failed to contribute much with the bat during the first T20I against England.

” We would have batted first. Looks like a good pitch, it has been used before for the Blast game. We just need to adjust quickly and adapt our game. We have four changes. Kohli, Jadeja, Bumrah are back, and we have one more change. These guys are one of the best teams in the world, so we want to challenge ourselves. We want to back our game in Southampton. We want to be fearless, but we need to play according to the situation. We know there will be some failures along the way,” said India skipper Rohit Sharma during the toss.
