Ishan Kishan was bought for INR 15.25 crore by Mumbai Indians in the mega IPL 2022 mega auction in Bengaluru. However, he has failed to justify the price tag and has failed miserably in the 15th season of the tournament.
He has consistently registered low scores, and MI’s most recent IPL clash against Lucknow Super Giants saw Ishan struggling to time the ball. He scored 8 runs off 20 balls before his dismissal. The southpaw had a strike rate of 40:00 in the contest at the Wankhede stadium.
The 23-year-old opener has joined MS Dhoni on the worst record list in the cash-rich league.
He has the record of the second least strike rate to his name in an IPL innings.
Former Chennai Super Kings skipper Dhoni had a strike rate of 36.36 when he accumulated an unbeaten 8 runs off 22 balls.
