Kishan was on 26 off 10 balls with 3 fours and 2 sixes and in a mood to dominate the Ireland bowlers. That’s when Craig Young bowling his first over bowled one full to Kishan. The left hander went for a slog across the line and saw the ball crash into the stumps. Kishan was out for 26 off 11 balls after giving India a flying start.
