Fans expressed disappointment and suspicion as Ishan Kishan was left out of India’s Test squad for the England series, suggesting mistreatment by the management.
Ishan Kishan’s absence from India’s Test squad against England has raised concerns among fans. Despite being a regular in various formats over the past year, Kishan, who made an impact in limited opportunities, spent significant time on the sidelines. Last month, he requested a break due to mental fatigue before the South Africa Test series, where KL Rahul took over as wicket-keeper.
Surprisingly, Kishan hasn’t returned for the ongoing Afghanistan series and upcoming England Tests, creating confusion about his status and leaving fans questioning the management’s decisions regarding his participation. Dismissing rumors of disciplinary issues, head coach Rahul Dravid clarified that Ishan Kishan was unavailable for the Afghanistan T20Is.
Expecting Ishan Kishan’s return for the England series due to the need for a specialist keeper on turning tracks, fans were surprised when KL Rahul retained the wicketkeeping role. Backup choices KS Bharat and Dhruv Jurel were selected, but Ishan was overlooked, sparking concerns among fans.
Many expressed the belief that he was being unfairly treated by the management, prompting a range of reactions on the matter.
