Aggressive wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan was in the center of controversy after he decided to skip Ranji games for Jharkhand. But now the aggressive cricketer is at the Mumbai Indians camp ahead of the upcoming session of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

During MI’s net session on Thursday, Kishan was seen making fun. He was spotted emulating former Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga’s bowling action. Kishan did it in front of the Sri Lankan great. Malinga was seen laughing. Kishan kissed the ball before taking off on his run-up just like Malinga used to. 

Mumbai Indians have shared the video on their social media platforms. The video has reportedly gone viral over various social media platforms.

Several fans have also flooded the comment box with amusing comments.

“There are two Malinga in MI,” wrote a fan.

“If Mumbai can earn love, it will only be due to Ishan Kishan,” tweeted another fan.

In response to the video, a third user commented, “No one can match Malinga.”
