I’ll hit a six. Things were according to me, it was my birthday, I was making my debut.
No pressure in debut match
Chahal asked Ishaan Kishan if there was any pressure on him regarding the debut match. To this Ishaan said, ‘I knew I was in good touch. The ball is connecting well, so I didn’t think any differently that I would have to change the game plan. All I had to do was hit the ball if it was on my radar.
