Ishan Kishan’s Strike Rate Questions Will Be Raised Repeatedly: Chopra

Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra says that Ishan Kishan would be questioned about his strike rate, following his poor performance against the West Indies. The left-hander was given a chance at the summit in all 3 matches, and he scored 35, 2 & 34 in the series, accordingly. In addition, 2 of the 3 innings had a strike rate under 100, which is unusual for the youngster’s hitting approach. Ishan strike rate, his poor performance against the west indies in the INDvsWI match.

Kishan, who made his T20I debut with a half-century, is an offensive batsman who likes to get it on the bowlers right away. He provides a left-handed-wicketkeeping batsman opportunity at the apex, which is a valuable asset, and he was the most expensive cricketer in the IPL 2022 super auction, as projected. In the third T20I, he attempted to improve his strike rate by hitting 31 off 34 with 5- 4’s, but it was still far back to his best.

Ishan kishan strike rate goes down. There’s pressure again on Ishan Kishan: Chopra

Chopra believes Kishan has been handed the position of an aggressive opener and believes there is a lot of expectation on him to handle the task. He also stated that concerns would be made about Kishan’s strike rate, which has been a dismal 85.54 in 3 matches and 83 deliveries.

“There was pressure again on Ishan Kishan. He batted well but the strike rate is still questionable. Questions will be raised repeatedly on that as he is playing because of left-right combination plus destructive, explosive but he is not able to do that job,” added Chopra.

Chopra felt really bad for Ruturaj Gaikwad, who scored only 4 runs in the 3rd T20I. However, Chopra lauded Venkatesh Iyer & Suryakumar Yadav for ramping up where India really needed them. Suryakumar was awarded Player of the Series for his brilliance.

“Ruturaj – there was an opportunity, I thought he would do well. He played the wrong shot. Shreyas Iyer was looking good but got out. But when Rohit got out, India was floundering. I didn’t think they would reach till 170-180 but then we had Venkatesh Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav – amazing partnership,” Chopra concluded.
