Asia Cup 2023: Strong matches are being played in the Asia Cup. Team India took on Pakistan in their first match of the group stage where Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya batted brilliantly after the top order failed. Especially Ishan scored 82 runs against Pakistan for the first time. After this innings of Ishaan, his place in the middle order of the team was assured. But still many experts believe that Ishan should be batting elsewhere than in the middle order.

Ishan should not bat in the middle order.

Suresh Raina has backed young batsman Ishan Kishan and said that the player should open instead of batting in the middle order. Raina said that Ishan’s presence in the team keeps the atmosphere positive and he is playing a similar role to the injured wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. Tell that Ishan opened the innings for Mumbai Indians in IPL.

Have played IPL with Raina.

Let it be known that Ishan Kishan and Suresh Raina have played together for Gujarat Lions team in IPL. Recalling his time with the youngster, Raina said, “I told (Aaron) Finch that if Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum are not playing, then Ishan Kishan should open. I will bat at number three. You can decide the rest of the batting order. He said that I remember he hit four five sixes in the match against Mumbai Indians in Rajkot. The spirit he showed in this match was what the team needed. Like Rishabh Pant, he also maintains a pleasant atmosphere on the field and good ‘team bonding’. Raina said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni had also asked him to keep an eye on the player’s performance.
