Xtra Time Web Desk: Team India wicket-keeper Ishan Kishan produced a brilliant run-out in front of former India captain MS Dhoni during the first T20I against New Zealand at JSCA stadium on Friday. The youngster’s presence of mind saw Kiwi batter Michael Bracewell getting run out for a score of 1. The TV cameras immediately showed MS Dhoni seated in the VIP box with his wife Sakshi. The former India captain sported a smile to see Ishan’s brilliant presence of mind.
The incident happened in the 18th over of the New Zealand innings when Arshdeep Singh was into the attack. Daryl Mitchell was in the strike and looked to slog a delivery angling in but couldn’t make the connection with his bat. The ball clipped his thigh pad before rolling to the left of the keeper. Ishan picked the ball while the New Zealand batters looked to steal a quick single.
The wicket-keeper batter from Ranchi broke the wicket at one go as the BlackCaps all-rounder Michael Bracewell was short of his crease. With MS Dhoni in attendance at the venue, the local crowd cheered loudly for Kishan, who also represents Jharkhand like MS Dhoni.
