Former Indian player Yuvraj Singh showered praises for Ishan Kishan after a stellar IPL 2020 for the youngster.
Yuvraj also lauds Rohit Sharma for his captain’s knock in the final. MI on Tuesday won the 5th IPL title, and second in raw, by defeating DC by 5 wickets.
Chasing 157, MI got a blazing start from opener Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma.
Ishan Kishan remained unbeaten on 33 off 19 balls, not giving any chance for Delhi to make a comeback in the game.
Ishan Kishan had a phenomenal season for Mumbai Indians. Replacing the injured Saurabh Tiwary in the team, Kishan didn’t put a foot wrong.
The left-hander ended the season as Mumbai’s highest scorer amassing 516 runs at an average of 57 and a strike rate of 145 with four half-centuries. He also smashed 30 sixes- the most by any batsman in the IPL 2020.
Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter to congratulate Mumbai Indians for their historic fifth IPL title. He said MI was the best team in the tournament by far.
The former all-rounder applauded Rohit Sharma for a captain’s knock in the IPL final.
Yuvraj, who played for the Delhi franchise in 2015, felt sad for Delhi Capitals who had an outstanding tournament but couldn’t clear the last hurdle.
The 2011 World Cup winner also praised Ishan Kishan, and Yuvraj believes that the 22-year-old is a bright prospect for the future. Yuvraj wrote that Kishan is a very special player in the making.
