Ishan Kishan

Ishan Kishan had a overall disappointing IPL 2022, but he has made up for all of that for the Indian team. He performance with the bat for Team India in the series against South Africa and England will be very decisive. However, he could be a very option to open alongside captain Rohit Sharma.
