Ishan Kishan made a stunning comeback to the Mumbai Indians as XI, scoring a match-winning 50 against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday.

We had great support staff. Our captain (Rohit Sharma)… I had even a conversation with Virat Bhai (Virat Kohli), Hardik Bhai (Hardik Pandya).. everyone was there to support me.
