The Indian ODI squad is in Zimbabwe for a three-match series, but the players still found time to have some fun while they were practicing for the first match. Ishan Kishan, a wicketkeeper-batter, posted a photo on social media with colleagues Shubman Gill, Shardul Thakur, and Mohammed Siraj. The southpaw captioned the image, which went popular on Twitter, “Fake candid with the boys.” Over 17,000 people “liked” the post, and it was retweeted more than 280 times.

On Instagram, it garnered over 1 lakh ‘likes’ and some hilarious comments. “Candid to plan did lag Rahi hai,” wrote the official handle of Ishan Kishan’s IPL team, Mumbai Indians. His India and MI teammate Suryakumar Yadav also had a few words. “Everything looks so perfect,” he wrote, with a laughing emoji. Recently, Kishan featured in a hilarious reel with Shikhar Dhawan and Gill, where the three can be seen putting out some fine dance moves. Ishan Kishan has been picked in the playing XI for the first ODI in Harare, where KL Rahul won the toss and opted to bowl.
The left-hander was left out of India’s squad for the upcoming Asia Cup. “I feel that what selectors do is fair. They put a lot of thought while selecting players as to who should be given the opportunity and where. It is a positive for me because if I am not selected, I will work harder and score more runs. When selectors will have confidence in me, they will obviously keep me in the team,” he had said after his snub from the squad for the competition.
