Ishan Kishan Slams The Fastest Double-Century In The History Of Men's ODI Cricket

December 10

Ishan Kishan gave a rare batting performance in front of Indian cricket fans. The heroics of Indian batsman Ishan Kishan in the same innings absolutely eclipsed Virat Kohli’s second century in ODI cricket.

Bangladesh has already won the series after defeating India in the last two games, thus there may not be much interest in the match given its lack of significance. However, Ishan Kishan’s performance offers Indian cricket fans good pleasure.

As skipper Rohit Sharma flew home to see a specialist after taking a blow to his left thumb in the second ODI on Wednesday, Kishan got to open the batting. Kishan then slammed the fastest double-century in men’s ODI cricket history, off just 126 balls.

The previous record for the fastest 200 in men’s ODIs, held by Chris Gayle, who made his double century in 138 balls against Zimbabwe in the 2015 ODI World Cup, was broken by Kishan with his 131-ball 210, laced with 24 fours and ten sixes.

Kishan, also became the fourth Indian after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Rohit Sharma to hit a double century in ODIs, as well as the seventh men’s batter overall, joining Gayle, Martin Guptill, and Fakhar Zaman. He is also the youngest man to score a double century in men’s one-day international cricket.

Kishan also contributed 290 runs for the second wicket with Virat Kohli, who scored his 44th ODI century as well as his 72nd international century.

As India made 409/8 in 50 overs, it was the third-highest partnership in men’s ODIs and the seventh-highest ever in the format.
