Ishan Kishan, who unfortunately missed out on his maiden ton by just runs, said that his strength is to hit sixes, and that is why he doesn’t feel the need to rotate strike, following India’s 7-wicket win over South Africa in the 2nd ODI.
The 24-year-old wicketkeeper-batter, who is playing as a specialist batter at No 3 in the ODI series against South Africa, smashed an 84-ball 93 to set up India’s 279-run chase before Shreyas Iyer completed the formalities with an unbeaten 113 from 111 balls.
“Some players have the strength to rotate the strike, my strength is to hit sixes. I hit sixes effortlessly and not many can do that. If I do the job by hitting sixes, there’s no need to think about rotating the strike much,” Kishan said at the post-match media interaction.
“If your strength is hitting sixes then go for it, what’s the need of rotating the strike just for the sake of it? But yes there will be time when rotating the strike would be key with wickets falling at the other end,” Kishan said.
