Former Australian pacer, Brett Lee, who is clearly impressed with Ishan Kishan’s performance revealed that he wants Kishan to open for India in the ODI World Cup in 2023.
Ishan Kishan scored the fastest double-hundred in ODI cricket history as India defeated Bangladesh by 227 runs. Kishan smashed 210 off 131 balls. Kishan joined the team in place of an injured Rohit Sharma.
Brett Lee said on his official YouTube channel,
“With this deadly double, Ishan has staked a strong claim to open for India in the ODI World Cup at home in 2023. Will this happen? I don’t know. Should it happen? Hell yeah, ofcourse it should.”
“The guy just scored the fastest 200 in ODI history. But if he can show consistency, stay fit, and be around the next few months, he should be a sure-shot opener for India at the World Cup,”
Ishan’s tremendous performance in the game made people insist on the inclusion of Kishan in the Indian ODI squad for next year’s World Cup. Most Indian cricket lovers want Ishan to replace Shikhar Dhawan or KL Rahul as an opener.
Brett Lee added
“What we saw just a few days ago from Ishan Kishan was truly amazing. Bangladesh had no answer. The fastest double-hundred in ODI history, that’s right. 210 runs off just 132 balls… 24 fours and 10 massive sixes. A ferocious knock with shots all around the dial,”
So, it would be interesting to see if Ishan can make it to the Indian squad for the 2023 World Cup based on the double hundred that he scored against Bangladesh.-- Advertisement --
