Ishan Kishan Declines To Give An Autograph Above MS Dhoni’s Signature

There is a video doing rounds on social media where India’s batter Ishan Kishan can be spotted denying to give an autograph above his idol MS Dhoni’s signature. The incident took place after Jharkhand’s match against Kerala when a fan requested Ishan to give an autograph on his mobile cover. Ishan humbly refused to sign because the fan already had the signature of MS Dhoni on the cover. 

“Mahi bhai ka hai signature aur uske upar bol rahe hain mera karne…mereko thoda ho nahi raha hai (This is Mahi bhai’s signature and you are telling me to sign above it. I can’t do this.”

“Mahi bhai ka signature hai upar, abhi humlog utna pahunche nahi hai wahan par…neeche karta hun “I have not reached the level of MS Dhoni, I will sign in the bottom)”.

Earlier, India’s pocket dynamo Ishan Kishan scored a double century in the third and final ODI match against Bangladesh on Saturday. Ishan hit 200 runs in just 126 balls, breaking Chris Gayle’s record of scoring a double ton in 138 balls. With this knock, the young Indian batsman becomes the seventh person in the world and fourth from India after Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, and Virender Sehwag to achieve this milestone.

Ishan Kishan got an opportunity to play in the game after captain Rohit Sharma was ruled out due to a thumb injury in the second ODI.  India had lost quick wicket of opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan at the start of their innings. But Ishan along with Virat Kohli stitched up a 200-plus run stand for the second wicket.
