India afforded rest to Rohit Sharma in the warm-up clash against England, and his replacement Ishan Kishan took the opportunity with both hands. The pocket dynamite that is Kishan opened the innings alongside KL Rahul and galloped his way to a half-century. The excellent use of the bottom hand was a hallmark of Kishan’s blitzkrieg as he played an instrumental role in plotting India’s win in the unofficial game. India now might have an opening conundrum, having to pick as to who between Rohit Sharma and Ishan will give Rahul company at the top of the order.
