Why Ishan Kishan didn’t play in MI vs CSK game?
IPL 2020 edition started with a Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings clash on Saturday. But both Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings came with surprising line ups in the opening game.
CSK didn’t pick Dwyane Bravo and Imran Tahir in their playing XI While MI didn’t choose Ishan Kishan and Saurav Tiwari got the place in Playing XI.
Everyone was very surprised to see Saurabh Tiwary in the playing XI. Although, it has been revealed after a while why Ishan Kishan is not playing.
During the toss, Rohit Sharma mentioned only foreign players’ names. Fans were shocked When they came to know about Ishan Kishan’s absence.
However, it has been revealed that Ishan Kishan is not playing because of his shoulder niggle.
On the other side, Saurabh Tiwary played an important inning for Mumbai Indians. He came out to bat at four and scored 42 runs off just 31 balls. He hit 3 fours and a six in his inning and made a case for himself in the future matches.
When will Ishan Kishan return?
Meanwhile, there will be a concern for Mumbai Indians over the injury issue of Kishan. It remains to be seen When Ishan will return in the line-ups. Although, there is no idea when he will be fit until Saurabh Tiwary will play for Mumbai Indians.
It is also a high chance that Saurabh Tiwary continues to play matches for MI even Ishan Kishan available for selection. Because Kishan had not been good IPL in last year where he had scored only 106 runs in 6 innings at a strike-rate of only 101.
