Team India comfortably registered a win against hosts Bangladesh in the third and final ODI match at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. It was opener Ishan Kishan, who made headlines as he scored a record-breaking 210 runs off 131 balls.
Following the conclusion of the match, Ishan was interviewed by India batter Shubman Gill over his blistering knock against the Bangla Tigers. In one of the segments, Shubman asked the swashbuckling left-hander why he did not make it to the practice sessions, to which Ishan responded hilariously.
Shubman: We had a practice session yesterday as well, why didn’t you come?
Ishan: I never leave out on a practice session. I am always present.
Shubman: But you didn’t come yesterday
Ishan: I was there, probably you didn’t see me.
Shubman: I was there yesterday, but you were not there. But when you got to know that you were in the playing XI in the morning, that is when you came for the practice session.
Ishan: Bhai, main net mein do baar bowled hua hoon! (I got bowled twice in nets).

Ishan Kishan explains why he opted for net session prior to 3rd ODI
The batter further explained why he considered the net session on the morning of the third ODI against Bangladesh. Ishan made Suryakumar Yadav’s World Cup innings as reference while speaking about taking up the net session.
“The wickets were not good in the nets at the previous venue so I thought of batting today in the nets here this morning. The other players had also batted a lot in the nets and batting here was helpful. Surya (Suryakumar Yadav did the same thing in the World Cup and he did really well there. I did it and I got 200 as well,” told Ishan as he spoke with Shubman Gill in the video shared by BCCI.
India will now play Bangladesh in a two-match Test series scheduled to commence on December 14. The red-ball series will prove to be vital considering it is a part of the ICC World Test Championships 21-23 cycle.
