During the third one-day international match against Bangladesh, which took place at Chattogram on December 10, Ishan Kishan literally stumped the cricket world when he scored 210 runs off of just 131 balls, striking 24 fours and 10 sixes.
Virat Kohli, who also achieved his 72nd international century, and he were involved in a partnership for the second wicket that resulted in 290 runs and helped India reach a score of 409 for 9 in 50 overs when they were given the opportunity to bat first.
In the end, India triumphed by a score of 227 runs. Kishan broke the record for the fewest number of balls required to achieve the double-century mark with 126. In one-day internationals, the 24-year-old also became the fourth Indian hitter to register a century in his career.
Kishan, who keeps wickets and bats, extended his dominant run by scoring a century for Jharkhand in their Ranji Trophy Group C match against Kerala on December 15 in Ranchi. The match was part of the tournament.
Kishan left an impression on everyone, and the crowd were thrilled by his performance. A supporter by the name of Randhir Kumar approached him and requested that he sign the back of his phone.
Kishan was going to sign when he noticed that there was an autograph of MS Dhoni, who is also from Jharkhand, on the back of the phone. Dhoni is the captain of the Indian cricket team.
“The document already has Mahi Bhai’s signature on it, and he wants me to sign on top of that. It is not something I will be able to accomplish. I’m confused as to why you want me to sign this. I will put my name to some other document, “he spoke with the spectator.
In response to additional prodding, Kishan stated: “How am I supposed to sign on top of Mahi bhai’s name if it is already there? That point in time has not yet arrived.” In the end, Kishan signed his name directly underneath Dhoni’s signature.
After scoring a double century against Bangladesh, Ishan was questioned about whether or not the knock would guarantee him a place in India’s one-day international team for the upcoming matches. The southpaw responded in a sarcastic manner, which caused the entire press room to burst out laughing.
In response to the journalist’s inquiry on securing a place in India’s one-day international (ODI) team, Ishan stated, “I don’t know, I don’t think about things.”
“The only thing I can do is perform whenever I have the opportunity. I really don’t want to discuss this. I’m going to step back and let my bat do the talking. Whether or not there is room for someone like me in this group.”
Kishan provided a statement that concluded on a sarcastic note, indicating that now that he has reached two hundred, perhaps he has strengthened his position as a result of the procedure.
“Ab 200 kiya hai to kya pata… (At this point, I’ve achieved a score of 200, so who knows…), “He had just finished saying it when he started to giggle.
