Ishan Kishan was picked up by Mumbai Indians for Rs 15.25 crore in the mega auction while he is considered one of the rising stars of the Indian players. In the ongoing IPL season 2022, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma are opening the batting for the franchise and the most winning franchise of IPL history has high expectations from Ishan Kishan.

The left-handed batter recently disclosed the incident, in which he was blamed by Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma during an IPL game in his MI career.

He further revealed how he was trying to make the ball old, but he ended up making things worse.

“You know what I did one time at Wankhede. I was new, it was my first season and I didn’t know anything. Now, to make the ball old, you usually throw it on the ground. So, there was a lot of dew in the match that day. And I thought that if I roll the ball on the field, Rohit Bhai will be happy that I am making the ball old,”  

Kishan said in an episode of ‘Breakfast with Champions’.

“So, in that dew, I rolled the ball to him. He took out his towel and began cursing at me. Then I looked down and realized what I had done. Then he told me, ‘Don’t take it personally, it is just match-to-match,”

he added.

Further talking about Rohit, Kishan said:

“Yeah, Rohit Sharma is chilled out. But his brain is always running on the ground. When he says a batter will hit in this area, usually it tends to happen.”

Kishan also appreciates Rohit Sharma for the gain of Rahul Chahar. Rahul is now playing for the Punjab Kings but he had played for Mumbai Indians in the past seasons.

“I have seen it myself with Rahul Chahar, I am thinking after he has bowled 2-3 dot balls, I feel the batter is going to go for it. But (Rohit) from behind is telling him to release it even more. Rohit Bhai has played a big role in Rahul’s success,”

said Kishan.

“I have seen it myself how Rohit Bhai would go from covers and give him confidence. Rahul would ask him if he needs to take the fielder behind. But Rohit would tell him ‘I have faith in you. You will be able to do it.’ And he would do it,”

he added.

Mumbai Indians have lost their opening two games consecutively and they didn’t yet open their account in the points table. The five-time champions will now face the Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday.
