It surprised everyone to see the playing XI of the inaugural playing sides; Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Where CSK eliminated Dwayne Bravo and Imran Tahir from their squad, MI were more dominant in having foreign players. It was astonishing to see no Ishan Kishan who is an incredible batting sensation of the side.
The news was revealed by Kiran More in the commentary panel as he also mentioned the substitute for him. Saurabh Tiwari was chosen as the best possible alternative for Ishan as he smashed 41 of 32 balls confirming his place for the rest of the edition of the IPL.
According to some reliable reports, it has been found out that the player is suffering from the shoulder niggle that has made him unable to take part in his franchise, MI. However, it has not been disclosed that when he will be fully fit to get featured in. It seems like that Saurabh will keep on playing even after Ishan will be their part.
MI vs CSK: Here is the reason why Ishan Kishan missed the inaugural match
On the contrary, it was a superb inaugural game of IPL 2020 to watch. It was not much expected for CSK to declare a win but they managed a five-wicket over Rohit Sharma’s side. It has cleared that they really are Dad’s army spiced with experience and missing on two major assets; Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh, will not affect them much.
