YOUNG wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan is living upto his billing as a future batting star by dishing out explosive knocks for India. His exploits have already fetched Kishan a staggering price in the Indian Premier League (IPL) auctions. The way ahead is now full of promise for the young southpaw and given the talent he possesses, Ishan Kishan is set to become a big name in white-ball cricket. The quick journey from First-Class cricket to stardom is product of a fine mix of hard work and proper coaching in the domestic ecosystem. The BCCI has ensured good moulding to every talent on offer in the country. For Kishan, the future is now for his own making as he is set to be a regular in the white-ball teams. Age is on his side and his ability to fit into any role gives him an added advantage. This brings into focus the need for Kishan to be extra cautious about falling in a rut. He cannot afford to become only a one-dimensional player in the era of multiple formats co-existing rather well. The ultimate aim for the batter has to be the India Test cap. With Wriddhiman Saha out of the picture, Kishan has a big opening to barge into the red-ball team. It is his choice.
