In a video shared on the official Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians, Ishan Kishan told how he faced Imran Tahir last year. They said,
My parents always used to think that when Imran Tahir comes out to bowl, I am out. I know Tahir has got me out two or three times. When he goes for a googly, I lose my wicket in the pursuit of hitting a six. I was talking to someone in the team that when Tahir bowls, how to play him, on this he said that Imran Tahir should play like an off-spinner.
Ishan Kishan acted on this advice and hit two sixes on Imran Tahir’s googly and hit five sixes in total in the match.
