IPL 2022 | ‘Pocket dynamite’: Netizens hail Ishan Kishan’s powerful shot against Delhi Capitals

New Delhi | Jagran Sports Office: The 15th edition of the IPL has started with a bang! In Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals on Sunday, batsman Ishan Kishan reached great limits to register his first 50 of the season. Ishan Kishan, who was bought for Rs 15.25 crore at IPL auction by five-time champions, broke an unbeaten 81 while skipper Rohit played a crucial 41.

In doing so, the 23-year-old drummer has achieved many feats. Now, Ishan Kishan is the third MI player to secure a third consecutive half-century for Mumbai Indians. He joined legendary Sachin Tendulkar and South African Quinton de Kock in the elite roster.

For the uninitiated, Ishan Kishan has become the most expensive Indian player in the IPL 2022 mega auction. He also tied Yuvraj Singh and became the most expensive player at auction who at the start of the IPL season scored over 50. In 2014, he had also scored half a century when he was bought for a colossal sum of ₹14 crore by Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Meanwhile, fans are hailing the 23-year-old drummer on the internet. Many say he proved why he was the most expensive player in the auction while others said Ishan Kishan has more potential.

“Ishan Kishan hits an explosive 81* (48) and proves his worth! Brilliant hitter 👌”, one user commented, “Half a century on the opener for Ishan Kishan ❤️‍🔥 Pocket Dynamite 🌟”, wrote another.

Meanwhile, after coming to bat for the first time, the Mumbai Indians amassed a total of 177/5 in their assigned twenty overs. Debutant M Tilak Verma also contributed with a cameo at 15 balls and 22 and another new face, Tim David, scored 12 balls from 8, including a six. On the bowling front, Kuldeep Yadav took three wickets during his spell while conceding 18 runs. Moreover, despite the heroism of Ishan Kishan, Mumbai Indians failed to win the match by 4 wickets
