Ishan Kishan Stumping: Youngster Ishan Kishan’s wicket-keeping performance in India’s tour to Sri Lanka has undeniably been terrific. His composure from behind the wicket is a treat to eyes. The Mumbai Indians player yet again gave an example of his dominance in wicketkeeping in the first T20 match between India and Sri Lanka. His lightning fast stumping to depart Sri Lankan batsman Dasun Shanaka reminded fans of former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and is the most talked about thing on the internet right now.

Indian captain Shikhar Dhawan won the toss and opted to bat first in last night’s match. The visitors were off to a disastrous start after losing opener Prithvi Shaw for a duck. Although Shikhar Dhawan and Sanju Samson took charge of the innings soon, it was short lived as both of them departed after making 46 off 36 and 27 off 20 respectively.
All the responsibilities were then transferred to the shoulders of Suryakumar Yadav who lived up to the expectations perfectly. However, he couldn’t finish off the innings due to an unfortunate stump-out. India could just put up a good enough target of 165 for the hosts.

However, it turned out to be enough for the Indian bowlers to defend. They piled up the Sri Lankan batting unit with their sheer dominance and the hosts were all out for just 126 in 18.3 overs. It was during Sri Lanka’s inning that Ishan Kishan stumped Shanaka behind and made the headlines.
The decision was taken upstairs as it was too fast for the umpire to judge. It was then seen on the giant screen that Ishan Kishan has maintained his calm till the very last moment. The keeper stumped Shanaka when he lost balance for a fraction of a second and lifted his feet up. He thus also helped Varun Chakrabarty take his maiden T20I wicket.
