The first Test match between West Indies and India started on July 12 at the Windsor Park ground in Dominica. 2 new players got a chance to debut in the Indian team for this match. These include Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ishaan Kishan. In this match, the hosts won the toss and decided to bat first. This time wicketkeeper batsman Ishan Kishan, who played 14 ODIs and 27 T20 Internationals for India, looked in good form behind the wicket. However, one mistake could have cost him dearly. This incident was seen in the 32nd over of Windies’ innings.
Brilliant catch by Ishan Kishan
Ravindra Jadeja, bowling the 32nd over of West Indies’ innings, dismissed Joshua Da Silva on the last ball. As it happened, on the last ball, Silva missed Jadeja’s delivery and the ball took the edge of the bat and flew towards Ishan. This time Ishaan was immediately alert, but the ball slipped out of his hands. This time he recovered himself in time and made a brilliant catch with the other hand to guide Silva towards the tent. So Silva had to take the road to the tent with just 2 runs off 13 balls. It was India’s fifth wicket after lunch. Meanwhile, the video is going viral on social media.
Kishan’s a keeper 🔒💪
