Ishan Kishan, who was dropped from the BCCI central contracts for not turning up for Ranji Trophy despite strict orders from BCCI, appeared in a different mood.

Ishan Kishan landed in Jamnagar on Friday for the three-day pre-wedding celebrations of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant. Kishan, who was dropped from the BCCI central contracts for not turning up for Jharkhand in the Ranji Trophy despite strict orders from the BCCI and the Indian team management, appeared in a different mood. In a video on social media that has gone viral, the attacking left-handed keeper-batter was seen sporting a brave smile. He also showed thumbs-up to the photographers.

Kishan has been out of action for quite some time now. After returning home midway from the South Africa tour, the left-hander was not considered for the Test series against England. He didn't make himself available for the Ranji Trophy and chose to train in Baroda with his IPL captain Hardik Pandya. The duo played their first competitive match this year in the DY Patil Cup.
