Now Jordan is a tall player, while Ishan Kishan’s height is short. The result was that Jordan’s elbow hit Ishan Kishan directly in the eye. Distressed by the pain, Ishan had to leave the field and go out. Vishnu Vinod kept in his place for the remaining overs. The result was that Ishan Kishan could not land for the opening and in his place Nehal Wadhera landed for the opening.
Second blow in 6 balls
Not only Ishan Kishan, but within the next 6 balls, captain Rohit Sharma also got injured after some time. On the last ball of the 17th over, Hardik Pandya played a strong shot on the covers, which Rohit tried to stop. He stopped the ball but in this attempt he got hurt near the thumb in his left hand. Rohit was also seen moaning in pain and he too had to go off the field, where the team physio was seen applying ice on his hand.
