Ishaan Kishan is in excellent form
Rohit praised Ishaan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav. He said that after my early dismissal in Qualifier 1, the way both of them battered is a commendable compliment. I think it was the best performance and the result was also in our favor. We never set a target and hit the ground. We wanted the team to play well in the power-play and both of them did the same.
Can change batting-bowling order anytime
