Ahead of the series against South Africa, youngster Ishan Kishan opted out of the Indian team, citing mental fatigue. The team management excused him but the cricketer is yet to make himself available for selection. In the middle of this, it has been reported, that the stumper-batter was upset with Jitesh Sharma’s selection in T20Is, which can eventually complicate his place in the playing XI.
Meanwhile, Kishan hasn’t turned up for Jharkhand in the Ranji Trophy. He is currently training with Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya in Reliance Stadium in Baroda and is much likely to make his return during the Indian Premier League.
