Ishan Kishan broke the world record of West Indies great Chris Gayle by hitting the fastest double hundred in a 50-over game., Gayle scored his double century in 138 deliveries against Zimbabwe, while Kishan achieved this landmark in just 126 deliveries.
Chattogram: Ishan Kishan is not a regular member of the Indian cricket team, but most of the time he has proven his worth whenever opportunity is given to him. He is not a prodigy but plays within his limitations.
He got a chance in the team today mainly due to the absence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma. He hammered the overconfident Bangladeshi attack all over the park without showing any mercy. He finally got out after scoring a remarkable 210 runs in just 131 balls with a strike rate of 160.31.
Kishan broke the world record of West Indies great Chris Gayle by hitting the fastest double hundred in a 50-over game. Gayle scored his double century in 138 deliveries against Zimbabwe. Kishan achieved this landmark in just 126 deliveries.
The swashbuckling batter has grabbed this chance with both hands. He not only scored his first ODI century, but also turned it into a “daddy hundred.”
Ishan Kishan played all kinds of shots in his fabulous innings. He rained fours and sixes all around the ground. Some of his unorthodox shots were similar to those of South African AB de Villiers. During the course of his innings, Ishan hit 24 fours and 10 sixes. It means he scored 156 runs on fours and sixes. Imagine the fabulous knock!
Other Indian batters who have reached this milestone include Rohit Sharma, who has done so three times, and Sachin Tendulkar and Virendra Sehwag, who have both done so once.
Early on, Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bowl first at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram. The series is already has gone in the kitty of the home side. Despite trailing 2-0 in the series and the absence of some senior players, the men in blue were belligerent from the start of the innings.
India lost Dhawan cheaply, but Kishan and Kohli added a mammoth 290 runs. Virat Kohli once again reached his familiar three-digit score. In today’s ODI, India is expected to score over 400 runs.
