“White-ball effect was seen in that shot…” Zaheer Khan Criticizes Ishan Kishan’s Untimely Dismissal

Former Indian fast bowler, Zaheer Khan, expressed disappointment in Ishan Kishan’s untimely dismissal during the second Test between India and the West Indies. Kishan, who scored 25 runs off 37 deliveries, was bowled out for 438 in India’s first innings in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Zaheer believes that Kishan will be extremely disappointed with the manner of his dismissal, as he had an excellent opportunity to play a significant knock but was dismissed shortly after getting his eye in.

During a review of India’s innings on JioCinema, Zaheer Khan was asked about Ishan Kishan’s dismissal. Zaheer expressed that Kishan would be disappointed as he had started his knock well and had gotten his eye in after facing 30-40 deliveries. In Test matches, getting out early is often seen as less of an issue, but the disappointment lies in how Kishan was dismissed. Zaheer noted that the shot Kishan played showed the influence of T20 or white-ball cricket, and he missed the opportunity to convert his start into a substantial inning.

Zaheer responded, “He started the knock well. So he will be extremely disappointed because once you have played 30-40 deliveries and scored 25 runs, you have gotten your eye in. In Test matches, it is said that it is not a problem if you get out at the start.”

Zaheer highlighted that Kishan had an excellent chance to play a significant knock in the Test match. After being dropped by Kirk McKenzie at midwicket off Jason Holder’s bowling, Kishan had a lifeline. However, he couldn’t capitalize on the opportunity and was dismissed off the very next delivery, attempting an ungainly steer that found its way into the gloves of Joshua Da Silva behind the wickets.

“However, if you get out like this, especially the shot he played, the T20 or white-ball effect was seen in that, so he will be disappointed with that because he had an excellent opportunity to play a good knock today.” Former Indian Pacer added.
