Ishan Kishan upset over team management’s call during India-South Africa T20I series: Reports

Ishan Kishan last played a T20I for Team India back in November 2023.

Ishan Kishan

Ishan Kishan, withdrew from the Indian team prior to the series versus South Africa to work on his mental health. The team’s administration excused him, but the cricketer has yet attempted to make himself ready for selection. In the midst of this, it was recently claimed that the stumper-batsman was dissatisfied with Jitesh Sharma’s inclusion in T20Is. This may have complicated his position in the starting XI. 

Meanwhile, Kishan has not appeared for Jharkhand in the upcoming Ranji Trophy. He is now working alongside Hardik Pandya as well as Krunal Pandya at Reliance Stadium in Baroda and will be expected to make his comeback in the Indian Premier League.

At present, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma appear to be the favourites for opening the innings for India. Meanwhile, India’s star batters Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav follow after that. It leaves no place for Ishan Kishan inside the top order, therefore the team management chose Jitesh, who can deliver blazing blows further down the order. According to RevSportz, Kishan disliked the change and wanted to leave the squad immediately.

Meanwhile, India’s head coach, Rahul Dravid, said that Kishan will not be eligible for the final three Tests against England since he has not played professional cricket since leaving South Africa.

Jitesh Sharma set to take the WK spot?

Meanwhile, Jitesh has performed admirably in the little opportunities he has had thus far. His keeping abilities are also impressive, as the batsman tries to secure a spot in the next T20 World Cup, that commences on June 1.

However, Jitesh will need to produce a standout season for the Punjab Kings in the IPL. He performed well in the previous edition of the competition. But he will need to improve as players such as KL Rahul  will compete for a berth on the team. It is confirmed that the WK spot will be decided from their form in the Indian Premier League.
