Ishan Kishan was one of the positives for Mumbai Indians (MI) in his heart-breaking defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Dubai on Monday. He scored 99 off just 58 balls to help Mumbai tie RCB’s 201. However, Mumbai stumbled in the super over when they could score just seven runs which was easily chased by Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. By the end of the match, Kishan was too tired to bat in the super over as Mumbai sent Hardik Pandya along with big-hitting Kirron Pollard. However, Kishan looked eager to get into the nets in the next match of Mumbai against Kings XI Punjab on Thursday as he practiced hitting long distances in the net, covering shots from most orthodox, such as the switch like overland Hit.

This was Kishan’s first outing for Mumbai in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 and he made the most out of it.
He had a 2019 season where he scored 101 runs in seven matches but was one of the stars of Mumbai in 2018, scoring 275 runs in 11 matches at a strike rate of 149.45.
Pollard, who remained unbeaten on 60 from 24 balls and scored 79 of the required 80 runs to win the final four overs against RCB with Kishan, would also be crucial to Mumbai’s chances of returning on the way to victory.
The defending champions started their season well with a win over Chennai Super Kings (CSK), but have since lost back-to-back against Kolkata Knight Riders and RCB.
