Sai Kishore was born on 6th November 1996 in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. He is a tall slow left-arm orthodox spinner, he made his list-A debut in 2016-17 Vijay Hazare Trophy, and in the same year he made his debut for the Tamil Nadu in the Ranji Trophy.

He was the leading wicket-taker for the Tamil Nadu side in the 2018-19 Ranji Trophy season. Kishore was then bought by the Chennai Super Kings in the following year 2020, but he did not get enough game time in the CSK side.

In 2022 IPL auctions he was grabbed by the Gujarat Titans for 3cr and he played five games and picked up six wickets with an economy of 7.56 as the Gujarat Titans went on to win the title in their very first season.

In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, he was seen praising the head coach Ashish Nehra and the skipper Hardik Pandya.

He quoted by saying “The wickets in Mumbai were great and playing another spinner didn’t make sense. I was an IPL newbie and they had more trust in me after I played two games. Ashish Nehra is a ‘vera [different] level’ human being; he’s a very genuine guy,” “Hardik is also a very genuine guy. It was clearly communicated to me what they had in their heads. You need to think about the team when you’re not playing, and it went well.”

“The players Gujarat trusted and picked performed extremely well, so weaknesses were minimized. The team was very well led by Hardik and when you have proper five bowlers, the combination is superb. You just need to score 160-170 runs and you know that the bowlers will defend,” “I am a big fan of those teams that have five proper bowlers. The strategy worked really well for us and the batting clicked and therefore it was sorted.”

The Gujarat Titans spinner Sai Kishore concluded by saying “The first time you play, people don’t know you. The second time, maybe they’ll read you better. But it’s just about improving your skillset, being in that zone and sustaining it for a period of time. My career hasn’t been about doing well one season and making the IPL; I’ve been in this grind for five-six years. It’s a journey that’ll go on forever.” Source – (sportskeda)
