"I want to let my bat do the talking, Whether there is a place for me..." Ishan Kishan

Ishan Kishan lit up the field with fireworks as he scored a record-breaking, fastest-ever double hundred in the history of ODI cricket. The knock certainly opens up new paths and books a few more series for the wicket-keeping batter to cement his place in the Indian squad. 

Even though the ODI World Cup right around the corner, Kishan has stated that he is not focusing on his place in the World Cup squad. Now that the search for a brilliant opening batter is seemingly on, Kishan makes an outstanding contender for it. 

Ishan Kishan has his mind set 

"I don't know, I don't think these things, All I can do is perform when I get a chance. I don't want to talk. I want to let my bat do the talking. Whether there is a place for me or not."

"Batting position, I think, other players also come through having batted at different positions. So being a young player, I can't complain and demand that you must bat me at this particular position," 

"At this level, it's about making use of the opportunities that are provided to you. That's how big players are made. Rahul Dravid was very happy. He also knows that he isn't able to give a chance to everyone who wants to play, who wants to do well. Because we already have such a good side."
