Ishan Porel mentions his dream wicket in IPL 2021
Ishan Porel , the tall and lanky fast bowler from Bengal who is in the Punjab Kings squad since last season , is looking to make a big mark in IPL 2021 if he gets his chance to play .
Porel came into limelight in the under 19 world cup in 2018 when his seam , bounce and accuracy troubled most batsmen and he took 4/17 vs Pakistan in India’s victorious campaign under Prithvi Shaw .
Porel was selected as one of the net bowlers for India’s tour of Australia in 2020-21 . However a hamstring injury cut short his stay while some of his net bowling colleagues went on to play for India in the injury ravaged series .
Back home he took rest for one week then went to NCA for rehabilitation and got fit to play in the domestic limited over tournaments where he performed well for Bengal in Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament taking 13 wickets.
Now Ishan is getting ready to play in the IPL and trying his best to break into the 1st XI of Punjab Kings . He has already expressed his wish for one dream wicket in the IPL and that wicket is of the Indian and RCB captain Virat Kohli whom he rates as the best batsman accross formats . Ishan has bowled regularly to Virat at the nets in the Australian tour and has said to have learnt a lot . He has dismissed his IPL captain KL Rahul while played for Bengal in the Ranji trophy and is also looking forward to bowl to Rohit Sharma . He also stated that he is trying to develop more swing in his bowling .
Hence this IPL will be an interesting one for Ishan Porel as he prepares himself for a breakout IPL and a subsequent India cap .
