IND vs SA: “Kinhi ka strength hota hai chhakka marna”-Ishan Kishan
After the win, the local boy, Ishan, came out to address the media. However, when asked about the strike rotation, the southpaw came up with a strong reply. He said that it depends on every batter. Some batsmen can rotate strikes easily, while some have the good hitting ability and can hit big shots. Thus, he said that he can hit big shots, which is why he doesn’t think much of strike rotation. Ishan said,
“Rotate karne ki jahna tak baat hai toh wo kuch players ka strength hota hai, kinhi ka strength hota hai chhakka marna. Toh mere jaisa koi chhakka bhi itni jaldi nahi maar pata hai, main bohut asaani se maarta hu. Wo mera strength hai. Toh agar main chhakke se hi kar leta hu kaam toh rotate ka utna sochta nahi hu.”
Ishan was trying to hit a six and got unlucky getting out. However, he also said that if there is an opportunity, he will always try to go for it. He also added that he never looks for personal records if the team is doing well. Ishan also stated that if a batter has strength, then he should go for this. Both teams will now meet in the series decider on Tuesday (October 11) in Delhi.
