POWER PLAY PREDICTION : After receiving an INR 15.25 crore contract in the IPL auction, Ishan Kishan reveals Rahul Dravid’s advice.


Ishan Kishan, the wicket-keeper batsman for Team India, revealed what head coach Rahul Dravid said during the IPL 2022 mega auction, in which he was the most expensive player after being signed for INR 15.25 crore by Mumbai Indians.

Ishan Kishan, the wicket-keeper batsman for Team India, made history over the weekend at a mega auction ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 edition by becoming the second most expensive Indian player, with the Mumbai Indians paying INR 15.25 crore for his services.

The players, on the other hand, had to swiftly turn their attention to the three-match T20I series against the West Indies, which began on Wednesday at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. On the eve of the game, skipper Rohit Sharma said that the players were naturally nervous during the auction, but that it was now over and that the focus should now be on doing well in the series for India.

Kishan recounted what head coach Rahul Dravid said when he landed a massive deal with the five-time winners, echoing his captain’s sentiments before the game. Dravid advised Kishan to concentrate on the present, which is the ongoing series, according to Kishan.

“The [bid] is over. I also had an excellent conversation with Rahul sir. [He] asked us to concentrate solely on what we were doing at the time. Obviously, the IPL is a large stage for everyone, and fans are glad to support good teams. But the focus is on this series,” Kishan said before the game to the host broadcaster.

Kishan started the batting with skipper Rohit Sharma and has repeatedly stated that he prefers opening the batting but is willing to play whatever role assigned to him by the team management.

“I’m happiest when I begin the innings, but depending on the situation and what the team requires of me, I’m fine with my job and can bat anywhere.” It’s a large six-hitting ground, but that’s my strength; on any given day, I can clear any ground. “I have to go there and watch the ball,” the 23-year-old added. “I have to be clear about what my role is and what the club needs me to accomplish.”

Despite Nicholas Pooran’s 43-ball 61, Team India had a great day in the field, limiting West Indies to 157/7 in the first match after opting to bowl first.
