Ishan Kishan was born on 18th July 1998 in Patna, Bihar. He was brought up in Patna itself till 2013, which is when he decided to move to Jharkhand, the reason being that the board of Jharkhand was more flexible and offered better opportunities. In 2014, Ishan made his debut for Jharkhand against Odisha at the tender age of 15. The left-handed batsman went on to score very useful 60 runs in his very first innings and grabbed the attention of the U-19 selectors.

Kishan has played a key role in the Jharkhand team in the past 4-5 years. In a 2016/17 Ranji Trophy match, Ishan scored a mammoth 273 against a good bowling lineup of Delhi. In this innings, he smashed 14 sixes, which is the greatest number of sixes hit by any batsman in a Ranji Trophy innings. This later turned out to be the highest score by any batsman who has represented Jharkhand. In the 2017/18 season, Kishan was the highest run-getter for Jharkhand with 484 runs in just 6 matches. He was also Jharkhand’s highest run-scorer in the 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy with 405 runs in just 9 matches.

The flamboyant batsman scored an unbeaten century against Jammu & Kashmir in the 2018/19 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in February 2019. He also scored another unbeaten century of 113 against Manipur in the very next match and recorded back-to-back centuries for himself.

Career-changing innings against Saurashtra

Although Ishan was contributing well with the bat for Jharkhand, his career’s turning point came in the Ranji Trophy match against Saurashtra. The match was being played in Rajkot’s Madhavrao Scindia Cricket Ground. The groundsmen had made a pitch that had dust coming out of it from the very first over. It was an extremely turning wicket and Jharkhand was batting first. The whole batting line-up collapsed on the very first day but the only batsman who gave his 100% was this 17-year-old boy from Patna. He was facing world-class bowlers like Ravindra Jadeja but still managed to play a very important knock for his team.

Jharkhand collapsed for 168 but it was Ishan Kishan who played a breath-taking brave knock of 87 in just 69 balls. After dismissing Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja even patted him on his back. This knock was well appreciated even by the ‘Wall of cricket’- Mr. Rahul Dravid and was one of the reasons for making Kishan the captain of India for the U-19 World Cup 2016 in Bangladesh.

U-19 World Cup 2016

As mentioned earlier, Ishan’s innings against Saurashtra earned him a spot in the U-19 World Cup 2016. Based on his domestic performance, Ishan was made the skipper of the side which starred extremely talented cricketers like Rishabh Pant, Sarfaraz Khan, and Khaleel Ahmed. Ishan didn’t have a great outing with the bat as he scored only 73 runs in 6 innings. He seemed to be in trouble whenever the conditions were seam friendly. However, Ishan completely impressed all of us as a captain by winning all 5 matches and reaching the finals undefeated.

Final against West Indies

In the final match, the Indian batting got exposed to a brilliant bowling performance by the West Indies and collapsed for a total of 145. Ishan managed to put only 4 runs on the scoreboard. However, Ishan led the Indian fielding pretty well in the second innings. Even after having almost nothing to defend, the Indian bowling was able to take the match to the very last over. It was Keemo Paul who hit Khaleel Ahmed for a four and sealed the ICC U-19 World Cup for the West Indies in 2016. Even after losing the match, the young Indian team was appreciated by everyone for putting up a great fight, thanks to Ishan’s mature captaincy.

Ishan Kishan T20I

Ishan Kishan was named in India’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for their home series against England in February 2021. It was his maiden international call-up and in March 2021, he scored 56 runs from 32 balls.

Ishan Kishan ODI

He was named in India’s ODI and T20I squads for their tour of Sri Lanka. Kishan made his ODI debut in July and scored 59 runs from 42 balls. After that, he was named in India’s squad for the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. 

In ODI, Ishan Kishan scored 210 runs in 131 balls against Bangladesh in December 2022, becoming both the youngest and the fastest cricketer to score an ODI double-century. He also became the first to convert a maiden ODI century to a double century.

During September 2023, Kishan earned a spot in India’s 50-over World Cup team. Initially chosen to substitute the regular opener Shubman Gill in the opening match against Australia, Kishan unfortunately failed to score any runs. Nevertheless, in the subsequent match against Afghanistan, he managed to score 47 runs off 47 balls.

Mumbai Indians (2018-Present)

A lot of franchises were attracted by Ishan’s attacking approach in the 2017 season and hence Mumbai decided to buy him at a huge price of ₹6.2 Crore! Ishan Kishan was the only uncapped wicket-keeper bought by any team in IPL 2018 Auctions. Although Kishan’s form wasn’t consistent throughout the tournament, he managed to score 275 runs in 14 innings at an explosive strike rate of 149.45.

He showed what he was capable of in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens. Ishan scored an unbelievably aggressive inning of 62 in just 21 balls! Ishan smashed the likes of Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav and Andre Russel all over the ground and got to his half-century in just 17 deliveries!

However, Ishan didn’t have a good outing in the 2019 season as he managed to score only 101 runs in 7 innings. He was replaced by Quinton De Kock as the keeper of the Mumbai Indians lineup, as they lifted the trophy for the 4th time in 2019. He was the highest run-scorer for Mumbai in the 2020 season, with 516 runs from 14 matches. Ishan Kishan was bought again by Mumbai for ₹15.25 crore in IPL 2022 auction.
