Anil Kumble Praises Ishan Kishan

During a recent discussion, Kumble was asked to pick two players who could be the next superstars for an Indian cricket team.

In the bowling department, Kumble chose Arshdeep, having worked with him at Punjab Kings, while Kishan was his pick in the batting department, adding that both players have done extremely well in whatever cricket they have played at the international level.

“Having worked closely with someone like Arshdeep, it’s wonderful to see him grow into what he’s done for India. I would look at Arshdeep as the next superstar bowler coming through. From a batting perspective, Ishan Kishan is someone who’s been wonderful in the opportunities he’s got. He got a double hundred and he’s someone who I think will be a superstar,” Kumble said on Jio Cinema’s show Legends Lounge.

Ishan Kishan scored a “record-breaking” double hundred during the 3rd ODI of Bangladesh vs India at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on December 10, 2022.

However, he was dropped from the team for the home ODI series against Sri Lanka last month. He got a chance to play the ODIs against New Zealand but had to bat down the order due to the presence of captain Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill at the top of the order.
