“Where Is Ruturaj Gaikwad?” Asks Angry Twitter After Ishan Kishan Failed In 2nd INDvsWI T20I


“Where Is Ruturaj Gaikwad?” Asks Angry Twitter After Ishan Kishan Failed In 2nd INDvsWI T20I

The Indian cricket team under Rohit Sharma’s leadership has once again proved itself superior to the West Indies cricket team in the limited overs format. India defeated West Indies by 8 runs in the second T20I of the 3-match series which was played yesterday at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The Indian squad is now leading in the T20I series by 2-0 and it has already won the 3-match ODI series by 3-0 earlier.

The former Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant played beautiful knocks of 52 runs each and helped their team in putting up a total of 186/5 on the scoreboard. While Virat Kohli faced 41 deliveries before getting out and his innings included 7 fours and 1 six, Rishabh Pant was more aggressive of the two as he also smashed 7 fours and 1 six but played only 28 deliveries and remained not out till the end.

However, Ishan Kishan once again failed to make an impact with the bat despite the fact that he got the chance to open the innings with Rohit Sharma for the second time in this series. In the second T20I, Ishan Kishan did not seem to be in good touch and he scored only 2 runs before getting out on the 10th delivery which was bowled to him by Sheldon Cottrell.

Ishan Kishan opened in the first T20I as well and in that match, he scored 35 runs after facing 42 balls and his strike rate didn’t even touch the mark of 85. He is known for his explosive batting style because of which these two poor performances have drawn a lot of criticism from fans and cricketing experts as well, especially because India needs to make a strong team for the T20 World Cup which will be played in Australia later this year.

Ishan Kishan became the most expensive player of the IPL 2022 as he was bought back by Mumbai Indians for a whopping price of Rs. 15.75 crore in the mega-auctions of the IPL 2022 and many online users are alleging that he is getting many chances just because he is from MI which is led by Rohit Sharma who is also the skipper of the Indian cricket team. Ishan is being tried for opening slot because KL Rahul is not a part of the Indian team as of now but the Indian squad has other good options as well, such as – Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Ruturaj Gaikwad.

Many Twitter users asked the team management where Ruturaj Gaikwad is. Just to inform, he plays for Maharashtra in domestic circuits, was the leading scorer of the IPL 2021 and played an instrumental role in helping his team Chennai Super Kings in winning the IPL 2021.

Here are some of the selected reactions:













While the online users are backing Ruturaj Gaikwad, the former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer feels that team India should play Ishan Kishan as opener in the third and the final T20I match of the series as well and give him one more chance as there is no point in giving just one chance to Ruturaj Gaikwad.
