Dubai,9/10: Before the T20 World Cup, the return of Mumbai Indians players Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav in form is a relief news for Team India and Virat Kohli. Ishaan scored an explosive half-century in the second consecutive match. With the stormy half-centuries of Kishan and Suryakumar, Mumbai scored 235 runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad, which is the team’s highest score in IPL history. Ishaan scored 84 in 32 balls while Suryakumar scored 82 runs in 40 balls. Ishaan hit 11 fours and four sixes in his innings while Suryakumar hit 13 fours and three sixes.
Ishaan’s second consecutive fifty
In the last match against Rajasthan Royals, Ishan returned to form and scored an unbeaten 50 off 25 balls with the help of five fours and three sixes. Ishaan completed his half-century in just 16 balls against Hyderabad, which is the fastest half-century of IPL 2021. Ishaan is only the second batsman to score a fifty in the first four overs of an IPL innings. Earlier, Punjab Kings captain Lokesh Rahul had achieved this feat against the then Delhi Daredevils in 2018 and the next year against Chennai Super Kings.
Both Ishaan-Suryakumar Yadav can be included in the playing 11, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma are set to open on behalf of the Indian team. Rahul is batting tremendously and he has scored 575 plus in the fourth consecutive season of IPL. Captain Virat Kohli himself will land at number three. Rishabh Pant is batting at number four for Delhi Capitals in IPL. In such a situation, even in the T20 World Cup, Virat can land him at this place. Hardik Pandya is not bowling and his fitness is still under question. In such a situation, Virat Kohli can include both Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan in the playing. Ravindra Jadeja will play the role of all-rounder and he will also bat at number 7.
