Ishan Kishan stated in the post-match interview, “I think initially, we knew the wicket is not easy to get going, it would be tough for the batters coming in first down or second down. My plan was to target the loose balls because powerplay overs are very important in T20 games, and you need to put pressure on the bowlers. Our plan was to take it one ball at a time. We need to give respect to the good balls, Nortje and Rabada are experienced bowlers, they have done so well for their country. My plan was to keep them on the backfoot, keep playing my shots so that they are also thinking, and they move their line and length.”

“I think they are world-class players, and I would not ask for a spot when they (Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul) are there in the team. My job is to give my best in the practice session. Whenever I get an opportunity, how I prove myself and do well for the team. So, I focus more on that. They have scored so many runs for the country, so I cannot ask to drop them and make me play. I will keep doing my thing, it is up to the selectors and coaches. My job is to give my best whenever I get the chance,” Kishan added.

India and South Africa will play the second game of the series on 12th June, Sunday in Cuttack.
