Ishan Porel, the young fast bowler going to play for Kings XI Punjab in the upcoming season of IPL, is ready for the challenge of this league for the first time, but he does not want to open his cards before taking the field.
This fast bowler can be seen playing continuously in the league for Punjab and Ishaan is also preparing for this but he does not want to make his preparations common. He says that everything will be seen in the IPL.
Ishaan spoke to IANS from Dubai on his preparations and bowling variations, saying, “The preparations that have been made will be seen by everyone in the IPL. I don’t want to tell anything right now. I am working, whether it is knuckle ball , Be slow. The main thing will be how you take it out on the field. If you can’t, then you can run. And the other variations I’m learning will be visible in the IPL. “
This time the IPL is being held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to Kovid-19, where the pitches are considered slow but Ishaan has no problem as he has played most of his cricket in Kolkata on similar pitches.
The young bowler said, “I have a habit of playing on these kinds of wickets because in Kolkata where we play league matches there are similar wickets in summer. The only difference is league cricket and this is IPL. I was a childhood I want to play in this kind of situation, so I am not thinking anything about it, I am just thinking about how to implement my plan. “
Ishaan represents Bengal in domestic cricket and Mohammad Shami, one of the main bowlers of the Indian team playing from Bengal, will also play IPL for Punjab.
How will Ishan benefit from Shami’s stay? To this, the young man said, “I can go and ask him anything at any time. Shami Bhai also speaks all the time that if you want to ask anything, don’t hesitate to ask. He is a troublesome bowler and when he shares his experience So it benefits us. It is not just me and Shami bhai but our bowling attack is such that we keep talking among ourselves. We all have good chemistry, which will be useful in the match. Yes, with Shami bhai, I have to go a little bit It is easy to ask and I will definitely feel comfortable when they are together on the field. “
Punjab team has a batsman like Chris Gayle who is counted among the most dangerous batsmen in T20. Ishaan said that there are some other batsmen in the team who are dangerous and bowling all these will help them.
Ishaan said, “Not only Chris Gayle, there are so many storm batsmen in our team. Like Sarfaraz is brother, Rahul is brother. There are many players in our team who are helping me that if any stormy batsman comes in front of me So how do I bowl. Yes, obviously Gayle helps with bowling. I always take feedback from these people about my bowling. It will only benefit me because I have Virat Kohli, Abraham in IPL. Dangerous batsmen like de Villiers, Andre Russell, Mahi Bhai will have to bowl. “
Ishaan was part of the Under-19 team captained by Prithvi Shaw, who won the Under-19 World Cup in 2018. He did not play the IPL last year due to injury but is now ready for this big stage.
He said, “IPL is a big platform for everyone. Whether you are playing for the first time or the third-fourth time. It gives you a chance to complete your journey. Here you do well then you get a chance in the Indian team . Under-19 and India-A are separate platforms and IPL is a separate platform as 90 per cent of the players in IPL are those who have played international cricket. Under-19 was different, India-A was slightly up and IPL, ground-easy. It makes a difference. It’s a big and very challenging platform. “
