It’s important to forget the last game and start from 0: Ishan Kishan

India clinched a thrilling ODI series decider with a commanding 200-run victory over West Indies, securing a 2-1 series win. Stellar performances from top-order batsmen Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, and captain Hardik Pandya led India to an impressive total of 351/5.

Opting to bowl, West Indies struggled in the chase, failing to recover from early setbacks. Shardul Thakur’s four-wicket haul and Jaydev Unadkat’s crucial wicket were instrumental in India’s triumph. The West Indies batting lineup faltered, except for a few lower-order batsmen. India’s all-round prowess and depth were on display, establishing their dominance and series victory.


Ishan Kishan | Player of the Series: Not so happy with the finishing that I gave. I was supposed to score big after being set. That’s what my seniors told me, I should’ve stayed in and scored big. That’s what I’ll try next time, I’ll get set in the middle and score big. It’s important at this level to get set. It’s important to forget the last game and start from 0. I was thinking of taking it one ball at a time. [On Shubman Gill] He’s a tremendous player, I’ve seen how he middles the ball. Seeing him hitting it out of the middle gives me a lot of confidence as well. Always important to win at this level, the learnings from these games are important. We were looking to get early wickets, and didn’t let any ball go. Everyone is looking very positive. I’ve played a few tournaments here and I know how the wickets play here, not really thinking about the next T20 world cup. Focussing on the upcoming tournaments, you know how one tournament can change your life. We’re just focussing on that now.
