Ind vs WI: Ishan should play at number 6, suggests childhood coach Uttam Majumdar
NEW DELHI, July 12 (IANS) Ishan Kishan’s boyhood coach Uttam Majumdar is hoping his prodigy will be named in the XI against West Indies in the first Test, starting on Wednesday in Dominica.
He further said that the young wicket-keeper should play at No. 6.
“I have a gut feeling that both Ishaan and Yashasvi Jaiswal will play today against West Indies. The young duo will do well for Team India. I would suggest Ishaan play at No. 6, it will be good for him and the team.
India will begin their World Test tournament cycle on Wednesday when they take on West Indies in the first test of the two-match series at Windsor Park.
The Indian team is set to hit the go button with the long-awaited debut of Yashasvi Jaiswal in the two-Test series against an injured West Indies, who are looking for a way out.
After KS Bharat has failed to make a mark in the few opportunities he’s been given, the selectors may go with young Ishan Kishan as an option to save their scripts.
