3. Punjab Kings

Ishan Kishan is someone who can prove to be a big match player for the Mohali-based franchise. The team is currently short of a dependable opener and a wicket-keeper because they have released KL Rahul from their squad. They have also released a big hitter like Nicholas Pooran and Chris Gayle has decided to opt out from the tournament.

2. Ahmedabad

The Ahmedabad franchise is brand new and they will need some stand-out match-winners in their squad and who else other than Ishan Kishan will be more perfect for them. Ahmedabad need a quality Indian batter, a solid wicket-keeper, and an established opener. Ishan Kishan is the complete package with all the aforementioned attributes.

1. Mumbai Indians

Ishan has been a true MI star and he did everything for the team whatever they wanted from him. He opened the innings, batted in the middle-order, and even played as a finisher in a few games. Ishan has tasted success on all the batting positions for the franchise. He won some games single-handedly for MI. It was a bit of a surprise when he was released by them.
