Another young left-handed batsman who has earned himself a lot of attention in the recent past is Ishan Kishan. He is one of the contenders suitable to bat at the top of the order for India in T20Is. Kishan, who has done well for Jharkhand in the shorter formats, has also featured regularly in India A matches.

Playing as an attacking wicket-keeper batsman, the 21-year old garnered attention with his stint as the India U-19 skipper in 2016. However, his rise to fame came through the IPL when he was picked for Mumbai Indians in 2018 for a hefty auction price of INR 6.2 crores and featured in almost every match of the season.

He looked certain about his game and handled the pressure well in nervy situations. Kishan wallopped a 21-ball 62 against KKR at Eden Gardens to prove his mettle with the bat. The Patna-born lad has been in contention for the selection in the national squad for quite some time but needs to showcase a piece of sheer brilliance to break all doors and find his way to the Indian team.
