Ishaan Kishan had a dream to become the second Indian batsman to score a half-century on his debut in a Twenty20 international. Kish scored 56 runs in just 32 balls in the second T20I of the five-match series on Sunday. Former India batsman Virender Sehwag found similarities between him and former India captain MS Dhoni on Twitter to praise the young wicket-keeper-batsman playing domestic cricket for Jharkhand. When he got a chance to bat in the order, Dhoni declared himself at international level and similarly Kishan got the opportunity to open the innings and grab the opportunity with both hands.
