My strength is to hit sixes so why think about rotating strike: Ishan Kishan

RANCHI: Flamboyant Indian batter Ishan Kishan, who missed his maiden international century by seven runs, feels there is no need to rotate strike when one can “hit sixes effortlessly” like he does.
The 24-year-old wicketkeeper-batter, who is playing as a specialist batter at No. 3 in the ODI series against South Africa, smashed an 84-ball 93 to set up India’s 279-run chase before Shreyas Iyer completed the formalities with an unbeaten 113 from 111 balls.
“Some players have the strength to rotate the strike, my strength is to hit sixes. I hit sixes effortlessly and not many can do that. If I do the job by hitting sixes, there’s no need to think about rotating the strike much,” Kishan said at the post-match media interaction.
“If your strength is hitting sixes then go for it, what’s the need of rotating the strike just for the sake of it. But yes there will be time when rotating the strike would be key with wickets falling at the other end,” Kishan said.
