Ishan Kishan, India’s small opening batter, bludgeoned a brash double century during India’s third one-day international match versus Bangladesh at Chattogram.
Ishan Kishan, who was brought in for the final game of the series as a replacement for the injured Rohit Sharma, batted recklessly by smashing 23 fours and 9 sixes on his way to reaching the 200-run milestone in only 126 deliveries. Only 85 balls were needed for him to reach his century mark.
Ishan Kishan smashed the world record for scoring a double century in 50-over cricket in the quickest possible time, which had previously been held by the legendary Chris Gayle of the West Indies. During the 2015 ICC World Cup match between Zimbabwe and West Indies, it had taken Gayle 138 deliveries to reach his double century.
Ishan Kishan beat the previous record by a significant 12 deliveries and became the youngest player in the history of one-day international cricket to score more than 200 runs.
He is the fourth Indian player, following in the footsteps of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Rohit Sharma, to score a double century in one-day internationals.
Rohit has three different scores that are greater than 200. Ishan is the seventh batter in the annals of One-Day Internationals to reach the 200-run mark in a single innings.
Martin Guptill, who hails from New Zealand, Chris Gayle, who hails from the West Indies, and Fakhar Zaman, who hails from Pakistan are the other players.
Kishan’s innings ended with him being dismissed for 210 runs after he had hit 24 boundaries and 10 sixes during his time at the crease.
