During a chat with Shubman Gill on BCCI.tv, Kishan was asked why he had skipped the net session on Friday. The wicketkeeper-batter responded that he never skips practice sessions and he attended it on Friday. Gill further said that Kishan only came to the net session on Saturday morning after he was told that he will be in the playing XI.
Here Is How The Conversation Unfolded Between The India Youngsters:
Gill: We had a practice session yesterday as well, why didn’t you come?
Ishan: I never leave out on a practice session. I am always present.
Gill: But you didn’t come yesterday
Ishan: I was there, probably you didn’t see me.
Gill: I was there yesterday, but you were not there. But when you got to know that you were in the playing XI in the morning, that is when you came for the practice session.
Ishan: I got bowled twice in the nets.
