Ishan Kishan: Profile, Family and Girlfriend

BCCI had de-recognized Bihar Cricket Association. Late Jagmohan Dalmia was deeply pained by ruthless interference of Lalu Prasad Yadav during Rabri Devi government in Bihar Cricket Association. Since then, there is no Bihari in the radar of BCCI for national team. Even Lalu’s son and the current Deputy CM of Bihar, Tejaswi Yadav, had to play for Delhi and then Jharkhand in his unsuccessful attempt to make a point.

Unfortunately, his dismal performance coupled with India U19 getting thrashed by the West Indies have lowered his stature.

In this context, it was a pleasant surprise for the people of Bihar when the BCCI named Ishan Kishan as the Captain of the Indian under 19 Cricket Team.

But, that is not the entire story. Ishan Kishan is not Bihari as far as his Cricketing career is concerned BCCI will never select a Bihari associated with Bihar Cricket Association because of those bad days under Lalu. Ishan plays domestic cricket from Jharkhand. Sending him to Ranchi was a smart move by his father which has given rich fruits.

Profile of IshanKishan

Ishan was born on 18th July, 1998 in Patna. His father Mr. Pranav Kumar Pandey is a businessman in Patna. He was deep interest in Cricket and showing great performance.

Ishan’s elder brother and Coach Santosh Kumar convinced his father to send him Ranchi so that he can play for Jharkhand. There was no hope of him being selected if he continued to play in Bihar.

Ishan was sent to Ranchi in 2013 when he was only 15. It took no time for him to get recognition and soon he was selected for Jharkhand Ranji Team. His performance in the domestic cricket was quite fascinating and Rahul Dravid was quite impressed with his batting against Saurashtra.

As a matter of fact, Ishan Kishan is a Left Handed opening batsman and wicket keeper. It is because of this fact that people are seeing a glimpse of Dhoni and Gilchrist in him.
By caste, Ishan is a Bhumihar. And, because of this fact the entire Bhumihar community of Bihar is quite elated with his selection as the captain of the India Junior Team.

IPL Career

Ishan has been bought by Gujarat IPL team for Rs. 35 lakhs. It is expected that he will have a good IPL career in 2016. Though, his performance in the U 19 World Cup was not up to the mark.

Girlfriend of IshanKishan

Ishan is currently single and not looking for any commitment as far as his relationship status is concerned. His entire focus is on cricket and a girlfriend can wait once he established himself in the Indian Cricket Team.

Nawada Connection

Ishan grand mother is a well known OBGyne and former Civil Surgeon of Nawada - Dr. Savitri Sharma. By caste, Ishan is a Bhumihar. However, all castes of Nawada are quite happy by the proud their youngster has brought to the dusty town. Giriraj Singh, the BJP MP of Nawada and a close friend of Dr. Savitri Sharma, was the first to congratulate Ishan Kishan.

It is because of this reason that Bhumihar of Magadh region are celebrating about Ishan Kishan, while Yadav of entire Bihar are feeling sad. Even, lots of Yadavs and Muslims used firecrackers when India lost against West Indies.

Getting Trashed in Patna

Ishan Kishan was also involved in an unfortunate accident recently. Just before the team was going for the tour, he had an accident with an Auto. Three people were injured and people thrashed Ishan Kishan severely. Hopefully, Ishan will not make this mistake of overspeeding car in future and will keep on concentrating on his cricketing career.
