Ishan Kishan, captain of Jharkhand and wicketkeeper-batsman of Mumbai Indians, has made a place in Team India on the strength of his talent. Ishan Kishan has got a chance in Team India for the five-match T20 series against England. The left-handed batsman is one of India's most talented wicketkeeper-batsmen in the current era. Ishan Kishan is also an aggressive batsman like Rishabh Pant. In the last one year this player has improved his batting a lot and in IPL 2020, he scored the maximum 516 runs for Mumbai Indians. Kishan averaged over 57. Ishan Kishan has also made a place in Team India by doing hard penance and Kishan's elder brother has also sacrificed for him. Ishan Kishan's story was shared by former cricketer Aakash Chopra through a video.

Aakash Chopra posted a video on Twitter, in which he told the story of Ishan Kishan. Regarding Ishan Kishan, Akash Chopra said, 'When Ishan Kishan was younger, his teacher used to kick him out of class and after that he used to go to the field. If mother used to ask Ishaan to study, she would make a field position on the last page of the copy. Ishan Kishan got his ears pierced at just 12 years old. His mission was to play cricket and seeing this, his parents got him admitted to the academy. Ishaan and his elder brother Raj wanted to become cricketers but parents asked either of them to become cricketers.

Aakash Chopra further said, 'Ishan Kishan's elder brother left cricket for the younger brother. Ishaan Kishan made a name for himself in Bihar after performing well and came to Jharkhand to play next to him. Ishan Kishan also became the wicketkeeper-batsman of Jharkhand like his hero Dhoni. Seeing this, Ishan Kishan reached the stage of Under-19 World Cup, Ranji Trophy, IPL and now he has made a place in Team India. Hopefully Ishan Kishan will get a chance to make a T20 debut and he will be able to prove himself.
