Emerging Indian cricket sensation Ishan Kishan has been commanding attention not only with his impressive performances on the field but also with his funky new hairdo. The left-handed powerhouse, who has been in a remarkable form during the West Indies tour, is likely to be a key player in the upcoming Asia Cup and ODI World Cup.

Kishan’s recent cricket exploits have undoubtedly caught the eye. During the ODI series against West Indies, India emerged victorious with a 2-1 scoreline, thanks in no small part to Kishan’s consecutive three fifties.

Moreover, his Test debut in a two-match series saw India claim a 1-0 victory. Although his contribution was more limited in the first Test, he showcased his skills in the second by scoring 25 and an impressive 52 not out.

The dynamic Mumbai Indians batter made a bold move by opening the innings for India alongside Shubman Gill in the ODIs. The decision paid off handsomely, as Kishan posted scores of 52, 55, and 77 in the first three ODIs against the West Indies. However, he faced a bit of a setback in the T20Is, where he struggled in the initial games and was subsequently replaced by Yashasvi Jaiswal.

As India gears up for the upcoming Asia Cup and ICC World Cup, Kishan’s name has emerged as a possible replacement, particularly given KL Rahul’s ongoing recovery.

The debate over his inclusion has stirred mixed reactions, with former India head coach Ravi Shastri lending his support to Kishan’s cause. Shastri emphasized the importance of having three left-handers in the top seven, and he firmly advocated for Kishan’s retention, especially considering his wicket-keeping skills honed over the last 15 months.

It’s not just Kishan’s cricketing prowess that’s turning heads; his recent hairstyle change has added a touch of flair to his on-field persona. Renowned celebrity hair designer Alim Hakim is the mastermind behind Kishan’s new funky and stylish look, which has found favor with fans and admirers alike.
