Ishan Pranav Kumar Pandey Kishan
July 18, 1998, Patna, Bihar
Left hand Bat
A wicketkeeper and left-handed opening batsman from Jharkhand, the same state MS Dhoni hails from, Ishan Kishan led India at the Under-19 World Cup in 2016 in Bangladesh, where his team finished runners-up to West Indies.
Even though India had a successful tournament, Kishan struggled for form on seamer-friendly tracks, scoring just 73 runs in six innings.
He was first noticed when he struck a 69-ball 87, studded with eight sixes, on a rank Rajkot turner in a Ranji Trophy clash against Saurashtra in October 2015. He then led India Under-19s to a one-day tri-series win in Sri Lanka, also involving the hosts and England, two months later. He had made his first-class debut for Jharkhand in December 2014 and scored a century and five fifties in his first ten first-class matches.
His attacking approach to batting had him picked by Gujarat Lions in the 2016 IPL auction for INR 35 lakh ($US 52,000 approx) at the age of 17.
