Ishan Kishan plays a valiant knock
Chasing a humungous total of 202, Mumbai Indians were struck with early blows as their captain Rohit Sharma, Surya Kumar Yadav and opener Quinton De Kock departed early to the stunning bowling of RCB bowlers. Reeling at 78 for 4 in the 12th over young Ishan Kishan and experienced campaigned Kieron Pollard took charge of the rescue operations. Kishan batted through the entire second half scoring 99 runs before getting caught in the deep in the fifth ball of the last over. Needing 90 from the last five overs, things almost looked impossible for the defending champions. But Kishan and Pollard made sure that they give a tough fight and hence ended just one run short of victory. The game then finally went to the super over, and there it was Kohli’s men in red that held their nerves better and came out victorious. Since then a picture ‘Ishan Kishan’ is surfacing on the internet where he can be seen as being disappointed with not being able to take his side home.
Ishan Kishan earns the heart of Aditi Hundia
Even though his 99 wasn’t enough to take his side home, it was more than enough to impress his rumoured girlfriend Aditi Hundia. After the match, she posted a photo of Ishan Kishan on her Instagram Stories with the caption:
“I am so so proud of you baby.”
