Watch : ‘Bol ke kiya’: Ishan Kishan says he ran out Sri Lanka batsman after announcing it in 2nd ODI vs Srilanka


Ishan Kishan started off his ODI career in grand fashion. The explosive left hander smashed a six on the very first ball he faced thus announcing his arrival in style. An innings that lasted 42 balls, Kishan made 59 runs that has two sixes to his name. Furthermore the southpaw had also hit a 50 in his debut T20 game vs England.

After the game, Kishan was talking with his team mate Yuzvendra Chahal on the latter’s  ‘Chahal TV’. When asked about how did he manage to hit a six on the very first ball of his ODI career, the wicket keeper batsman replied :

“I thought odds were in my favor. It’s my birthday and plus I had been keeping wickets for 50 overs and I knew there wasn’t much assistance for spinners. So I knew that it was the right opportunity to hit the first ball for a six. Also I had told you guys that whoever bowls the first ball and wherever he bowls it, I was going to hit the first ball for a six”.

Amazing Kishan runs out Sandakan

Initially Kishan wasn’t even in the frame for playing the first match. Sanju Samson was all set to play as the designated wicket keeper batsman for the team. However at the last moment the latter was injured as he tore his ligament. Hence by the turn of fate, Kishan got an opportunity which he grabbed with both hands.

Today again Kishan showed that he is a good batsman as well as a good wicket keeper. It was the last over of the Sri Lankan innings and bowled by Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. On the third ball of the over Lakshan Sandakan was batting and was looking for quick runs. Hence Bhuvi bowled a slower ball and batsman tried to thrash it but missed.

The ball went to wicket keeper who took it and ran towards the stumps to run the striker’s batsman out. It was a brilliant effort by the wicket keeper.
