Ishan Kishan has announced his arrival in International Cricket with an ODI double hundred. In IPL 2023, he has been in hold and cold form with great innings and failing another. Still, Ishan Kishan is rated as one of the important batters for Mumbai Indians. He is giving Rishabh Pant, a run for his money, in white ball cricket. Ishan Kishan has been selected for Tests, now.
He did not make his International Test debut, yet. Now, Ishan Kishan has been picked into Test squad for World Test Championship, WTC final. He replaced injured KL Rahul, who is expected to keep wickets in the final. Ishan Kishan might get a chance, if India Team think about giving him a chance in the middle-order. He might be seen as a replacement to Rishabh Pant, in the longer run.
KS Bharat is already part of the squad. Will India go with KS Bharat or Ishan Kishan? It would be decided after looking at the conditions and pitch of Oval, in June. Unadkat Jayadev and Umesh Yadav are also injured during IPL and BCCI is looking at their recovery closely. Ishan Kishan, if maintains his form in next matches for Mumbai Indians, might just make his Test debut, on the biggest stage.
