Ishan Kishan, upon meeting his “Idol,” is quoted as saying, “Proud to Have His Autograph on My Bat…”

Ishan Kishan, who keeps wickets and bats, is now one of the most notable players for the Indian national cricket team. The batsman, who is now 24 years old and made his debut in 2021, has already competed in 13 one-day internationals and amassed a staggering total of 507 runs.

Ishan has participated in 24 Twenty20 Internationals and has scored 629 runs between them, including four half-centuries. Ishan also broke the record for the fastest double hundred by scoring 210 runs off 131 balls in the third one-day international in the series against Bangladesh, which took place in December of the previous year.

However, the cricketer who was born in Patna but spent his childhood in Jharkhand revealed that his childhood hero has always been the former captain of India, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Ishan said the following in a video that was uploaded to the Twitter account of the BCCI: “My cricketing idol while growing up was MS Dhoni, who came from the same place and also played for Jharkhand, so I really wanted to fill his shoes, and now that I am here, I will make sure that I make my team win so many other games.”

The wicketkeeper for the Mumbai Indians also mentioned that the most memorable experience of his life was getting an autograph from Dhoni when he was only 18 years old. He said this was the most unforgettable moment of his life.

“My only request for an autograph was made to MS Dhoni, and he kindly obliged. When I was 18, I finally got to meet him for the first time after all these years. It was a time that will stick out in my mind for a long time, and it still does. And the fact that he signed my bat makes me quite proud, “Ishan stated.

In the third match of the series against Bangladesh in December of the previous year, Ishan hit his first ever ODI double hundred. However, he was not used at all in India’s One-Day International (ODI) series against Sri Lanka, which ultimately resulted in a 3-0 victory for India.

Later on, he made his comeback in the one-day internationals against New Zealand. However, he was unable to deliver a remarkable performance and could only get scores of 5, 8*, and 17 over the course of three matches.
