Ishan Kishan, the highest run-getter in the ongoing series will be the other opener for the team in the India vs South Africa 5th T20I. Ishan Kishan is the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 191 runs averaging 47.75. However, he won’t wear the keeper’s gloves as Rishabh Pant will do so. The left-handed batsman failed to score good knocks in crucial matches of IPL 2022 for MI.
However, making a comeback towards the end, he scored decent 418 runs in 14 games at an average of 32.15. In his previous T20I series against Sri Lanka, the wicketkeeper batter piled up 105 runs in 2 games with 1 fifty. He also finished as the 3rd highest run-getter.
