Ishan Kishan Biography, Wiki

Ishan Kishan was born on 18th of July 1998 in Patna, Bihar to Pranav Kumar Pandey and Suchitra Singh. Kishan’s father Pranav Kumar Pandey, is a builder by profession. Ishan’s brother Raj Kishan, supported him in pursuing cricket as career.

Due to registration issue between Bihar Cricket Association and the BCCI, Ishan started playing for neighboring state Jharkhand based on advice from a senior player and friend. Hailing from the same city as Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ishan always draws a comparison with his senior.

A wicketkeeper and left-handed opening batsman from Jharkhand, the same state MS Dhoni hails from, Ishan Kishan led India at the Under-19 World Cup in 2016 in Bangladesh, where his team finished runners-up to West Indies.

Even though India had a successful tournament, Kishan struggled for form on seamer-friendly tracks, scoring just 73 runs in six innings.

He was first noticed when he struck a 69-ball 87, studded with eight sixes, on a rank Rajkot turner in a Ranji Trophy clash against Saurashtra in October 2015. He then led India Under-19s to a one-day tri-series win in Sri Lanka, also involving the hosts and England, two months later. He had made his first-class debut for Jharkhand in December 2014 and scored a century and five fifties in his first ten first-class matches.

His attacking approach to batting had him picked by Gujarat Lions in the 2016 IPL auction for INR 35 lakh ($US 52,000 approx) at the age of 17.

Ishan Kishan Career

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 most 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.

Ishan was named in the India C squad for the 2018-19 Deodhar Trophy after his magnificent run in the previous domestic season and ended up scoring a crucial century in the final which helped India C win their maiden title.

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.

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 of making Kishan as the captain of India for the U-19 World Cup 2016 in Bangladesh.

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 the 5 matches and reaching the finals undefeated.

After his reasonably good 2015/16 domestic season, Ishan Kishan was picked up by the brand new franchise Gujarat Lions in IPL 2017. He had a decent tournament with the bat in 2017 as he scored 277 runs in his 11 innings, which included 29 fours and 11 sixes.

Ishan played at a blistering strike rate of 134.46 in that season. In one of the games against RCB at Rajkot, Kishan played a magnificent inning of 39 off just 16 balls and almost won the game for Gujarat Lions. However, RCB won the match by 21 runs.

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.
