Ishan Kishan broke a number of records on Saturday when he scored a double century against Bangladesh in the third one-day international match that was held in Chattogram.
It took Kishan just 126 balls to reach the mark, which beat the previous record held by Chris Gayle for the fastest double century scored in the history of One-Day Internationals (ODIs).
In the end, he was kicked off the team for 210. Kishan, who is well-known for his hard-hitting batting at the top of the order, was brought into the playing XI after it was determined that skipper Rohit Sharma would not be able to participate in the last game of the series owing to an injury to his thumb.
Kishan displayed no indications of anxiety as he took a toll on the Bangladesh bowlers during the match, despite the fact that India entered the game behind the series 0-2 going into it.
Kishan reached his first one-day international century while batting with the legendary India batsman Virat Kohli for the second wicket. The partnership between the two batsmen was worth 290 runs, and it was Kohli’s presence that allowed Kishan to maintain his composure and reach the milestone.
“I was batting with Virat bhai, and he was quite helpful in guiding me toward the bowlers I needed to choose in order to hit my target. When I was on 95, I wanted to slap someone, but he calmed me down by telling me it was my first hundred, and that made me feel better “After the end of India’s innings, Kishan expressed his thoughts.
He also expressed regret over the fact that there were a lot of overs left when he was dismissed, and that if he had stayed on, he may have become the first player to score a 300 in one-day internationals.
“It would have been a waste of time to bat on that wicket. My purpose was crystal evident to everyone. It is a joy to have my name spoken alongside such icons. I left the game with 15 overs remaining. I may have gotten 300 points as well “he continued.
Ishan Kishan is the fourth batter from India and the seventh overall to achieve a double century in one-day internationals (ODIs).
