The Fastest Double Ton by a Young Ishan Kishan Amazed Everyone; even Sachin Tendulkar – the God of Cricket, couldn’t resist praising him. In his maiden ODI century, Ishan Kishan converted it into a double century on Saturday, with 10 sixes and 24 fours on his way to 210 off just 131 balls.
Mumbai Indians player Ishan Kishan made a tremendous knock of 210 and put his name on the list of legends. He is the fourth Indian to score a double century in men’s ODI cricket, and the only other members are Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, and Rohit Sharma.
He showed his gratitude said in the Tweet:
“I cannot put into words what I’m feeling right now but I’ll try. I’m overwhelmed by the love, the messages, the wishes. This is an innings that will stay in my heart forever, a day that I won’t forget, and these moments that I’ll always carry with me. Thank you for everything ”
It was Ishan Kishan’s fastest double century in the history of ODIs, taking only 126 balls to reach the mark. It shattered several records during the third ODI in Chattogram on Saturday. Kishan broke Chris Gayle’s world record by completing the century in the shortest time possible.
During his maiden ODI century, Kishan shared 290 runs. He was playing with India legend Virat Kohli, and it was Kohli’s presence that helped him keep calm.
“I was batting with Virat Bhai, and he was spot on with which bowlers I needed to select [to target]. I was on 95 and wanted to smack, but he calmed me down, saying it was my first hundred,” Kishan said at the end of India’s innings.
He also regrets not staying on to become the first player to score 300 in ODIs if he had stayed on.
“The wicket was too good to bat on. My intent was very clear. I am blessed to hear my name between such legends.
He added: I got out with 15 overs left. I could have got 300 also,” he added.
