But despite being the best of the series, Ishaan Kishan still has one regret.
In the post-match presentation, Ishan Kishan said, “I am not that happy with the finish I gave. After the set, I had to score big. My seniors also told me one thing, I should have stayed at the crease and scored big runs. It should have been done. Next time I try the same, I will set in the middle and score big. Setting up this stage is important. It is important to forget the last game and start from scratch.”
On opening the batting with Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan said, “He is a fantastic player, I have seen how he middles the ball. Seeing the ball coming out of the middle of his bat also boosted my confidence a lot. Winning at this level is always important, and learning from these games is important. Everyone looks very positive. I have played a few tournaments here and I know how the wickets play here, I am not thinking about the next T20 World Cup. We have many important tournaments ahead, and we are thinking about them.
