Ishan Kishan is looking to secure his place in Team India behind Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul

Indian team management sees Kishan as an expert opener, as he knows he is not blessed with a power game to negotiate differences in the back-end of T20I games.

After 76 off 48 balls in the defeat against South Africa, which was often flashy and scratched in some parts, Kishan was determined to take control.

“They (Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul) are world class players and I will not ask for my place when they are in the team. He has scored so many runs for his country, I can’t leave him alone and ask me to play in the first place, “Kishan told a post-match press conference.

Kishan said, “My job here is to give my best in a practice session. Whenever I get a chance I have to prove myself or do well for the team. I’m more focused on what I want to do. “

It is up to them to perform when they get the chance and let the coaches and selectors do their job.

“I want to keep doing my job, it depends on what the selectors and coaches think, but it’s my job to give my best when I get the chance,” he said.

Regarding his strategy, the 23-year-old said: “We knew that wickets were not easy for the batsmen. My plan was to put pressure on the bowlers by targeting loose balls. So, they are also thinking and following their lines and lengths. “

Despite the batsmen scoring 211 runs, the Indian bowlers struggled to defend the target on the batting side.

Shreyas Iyer’s 29-run knock of 75 not out, along with van der Dussen, knocked out the sitters, adding to the home side’s woes.

“We need to find out what went wrong with the bowling department or the fielding department, but not a single player forced us to lose the match,” Kishan said. So we as a team will understand everything. “
