Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer feels that Ishan Kishan needs to be given time and added that patience is required as the young batsman is still new to international cricket. Ishan Kishan has failed to impress in the first two T20Is against the West Indies and he would like to improve it.
Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer talked about Ishan Kishan recently. The left-handed batsman has struggled for runs in the first two T20I games against the West Indies. As he looks to find form, Wasim Jaffer while speaking to ESPNCricinfo shared his thoughts regarding the same.
Wasim Jaffer during the interview said that the team should give Ishan Kishan another chance.
“We need to give Ishan Kishan another game and play him in the third T20I," Jaffer said.
He also added that Ruturaj Gaikwad can be considerd for the upcoming Sri Lanka series
“Then we must think about giving Ruturaj (Gaikwad) a chance in the Sri Lanka series. He should be given a longer rope, maybe a series. No point giving Ruturaj one game. It makes sense to have continuity with players so they know that they are going to play the full series," he stated.
“We need to be patient with Ishan Kishan. We all know that he is a quality player. He has got fifties on T20I and ODI debuts and has such a fine IPL record for Mumbai Indians. But he has just been bought for ₹15 crores, which plays on players’ minds. And, it wasn’t easy straightaway. The ball was swinging a little. Even Rohit (Sharma) scored at almost a run-a-ball for his 19. We need to leave him alone. Once he gets going, he’ll be fine."
