- Ishan Kishan is not in the Indian team for the Asian Cup
- Ishaan sidelined despite strong performance in 2022
- Ishaan Kishan’s pain came to light on social media
Ishan Kishan: The Indian squad for the 2022 Asian Cup was announced on Monday. Many players were deprived of a place in this team. Some of these players are such that they have been getting a place in the India team’s playing XI for some time but were sidelined for the Asian Cup. Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan are four names who have played a lot of cricket for India in recent times but were not considered by the selectors to be in the squad for the Asian Cup.
Ishaan’s pain came out on Instagram
Samson, Siraj and Shami were unlikely to be included in the team, but no one expected Ishaan to be out. It’s definitely heartbreaking to be left off the team like this. And perhaps Ishaan has taken to Instagram to express the same situation. The senior hitter shared a few lines from Bella’s song ‘Humble Poet’ along with a photo of him on his Instagram story. He has written: ‘Now don’t become like this, even if you get hurt. If someone thinks you’re a flower, they fire you.
Ishaan is no less than anyone in 2022
The left-handed batsman has outperformed many other Indian batsmen at T20 Internationals in 2022. He has scored 430 runs in 14 matches with a strike rate of 130.30 and an average of 30.71 which includes three half centuries.
sidelined on recent tour
However, he had very few opportunities on the tour of England and the West Indies. He was only given the chance to play in two of the last six games. He didn’t score a half-century in any of his last six innings, with 27 runs being his best score. This could be a big reason why the coaches didn’t bother to give him a chance in the Asian Cup squad.
Left-handed batting didn’t win hearts
On the current team, all batters included in the top and middle order bat right-handed. In such a situation, including this 24-year-old left-hander could have given more balance to the team, but the selectors also ignored him.
