“Hate deke kahan jaaunga”, Ishan Instagram story

Ishan Kishan posted some inspirational lyrics from the rap song Bella – Humble Poet on his Instagram account.

The lyrics of the rap song: 

“Ke ab esa ban na nai

Bhalle ghayal ho jaana

Tujhe fool samjhe koi

Toh tu fire ho jana

Bella piche rehna magar sab sambhaal lena tu

In sab aage waalo ki traah naa gayaab ho jana

Meri baat sun mein hate deke kahan jaaunga

Yaa fir esa kahun hate leke badal jaunga”

Why was Ishan not selected for Asia Cup 2022?

The wicketkeeper-batsman may have been left off of the Asia Cup squad due to his inconsistency. He has not seen much action in India’s bilateral T20I series, having only appeared in one game against both England and the West Indies. Where also, he didn’t make the most of the few chances he had and ended up with scores of 8 and 11. 

His lack of form may not have been convincing to the team’s selection and management leave him off. Meanwhile, the two main wicketkeepers for India in the tournament are Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik. With their performance in recent encounters, they have strengthened their positions.
