Indian Batsman Ishan Kishan was named to the India National Cricket Team’s playing XI for the third ODI of the three-match series against the Bangladesh National Cricket Team.
Ishan Kishan has scored 207 runs across six innings in 2022 so far. He played a series-rescuing 93-run knock in the second ODI against South Africa in his hometown of Ranchi in October 2022.

Fair to say India’s batting has let them in both ODIs so far. The two batting stalwarts Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli have failed to get going. Barring Shreyas Iyer, no batter has shown consistency. Worst, apart from Rohit Sharma, India won’t have the services of Kuldeep Sen and Deepak Chahar. The two pacers are out due to back stiffness and hamstring trouble respectively.
During the Toss, Rahul remarked, “Injuries are not great and we’ve had a few of them. But it also gives opportunities to new guys. Two changes obviously: Rohit and Deepak are injured. So Ishan Kishan and Kuldeep come in. We’ve always had the quality as a team. Right now it’s important for us to get better as individuals and get runs in different conditions.”
“Haven’t played one-day cricket for a long, long time. The focus was on T20 cricket. We always want to win and give our best for the country. But sometimes it doesn’t happen. There’s never an international game that doesn’t have pressure. It’s a new wicket – different conditions. Important for us to assess, be brave, and put the pressure back on them. That’s what Indian cricket has done over the years” Kl Rahul Added.
Here’s How Twitter Reacted To Ishan Kishan’s selection In The Playing XI vs Bangladesh:
What is that Ishan Kishan has achieved in ODI? Shouldn't it be Patidar or Tripathi in 11 for a specialist top order batsman instead of WK batsman?

The 3 games should clear the point I made on 24 Nov. This mgmt follows pecking order and thats why didnt see Shahbaz and Rajat get a game in this series.
If Kuldeep does end up bowling well in MO, he will replace Chahal most probably.
Big game for Ishan Kishan https://t.co/cSJ4uJRQzA

Why not Rahul Tripathi?? Ishan Kishan has already given many chances and he has failed miserably barring one or two good innings in T20.
3-0 loading..mockery of a selection. https://t.co/vuiTcJvAGi

Tripathi doesn't even get a chance in a dead rubber..
He's miles ahead of Ishan Kishan as a batsman..

The Indian team in Bangladesh has been beset by injuries, with several players, including captain Rohit Sharma, joining the list. It is unclear whether the captain has been completely ruled out of the series.
Rohit, who received a ‘blow on his thumb’ during the second ODI in Dhaka on December 7, is expected to be available for the second Test (December 22-26). KL Rahul will captain the team in the first Test (December 14-18).
India (Playing XI): Shikhar Dhawan, Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul(w/c), Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik
