India youngster Ishan Kishan played the best knock of his career in ODIs. Despite India’s losing the three-match series by 2-1 against Bangladesh, the third ODI saw Kishan’s absolute carnage with the bat. He slammed 24 boundaries and 10 maximums to score 210 off just 131 balls at a strike rate of 160.31.
His knock even overshadowed Virat Kohli‘s 72nd international ton, and first ODI ton after three years. Kohli went on to score 113 runs from 91 balls (with 11 fours and two sixes).
Kishan and Kohli’s knock helped India post a mammoth total of 409/8 in their allotted 50 overs on Saturday (December 10) at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. The bowlers later did the rest of the job by restricting Litton Das & Co. to just 182 runs to win the match by a huge margin of 227 runs. No Bangladeshi batters even crossed the 50-run mark. Shakib Al Hasan scored the most for his team (43 runs off 50 balls).
Check all the records Ishan Kishan broke with his incredible knock of 210 off 131 balls.
Youngest Batter to Smash ODI Double Century
The 24-year-old accomplished something that every batter dreams of. He surpassed India skipper Rohit Sharma’s record by becoming the youngest batter in ODI history to smash a double century. Rohit was 26 years and 186 days when he created the record against Australia on November 2, 2013, in Bengaluru.
1st Player to Convert Maiden ODI Ton to Double Ton
Ishan Kishan became the first batter in cricket’s history who converted his maiden ton to a double century in ODIs. His previous highest score was 93, which he scored against South Africa in Ranchi on October 9, 2022.
Fastest Double Hundred in ODIs
Kishan broke West Indies great Chris Gayle’s 138-ball ODI ton to score the fastest double hundred in the 50-over format. Gayle played a 215-run knock from 147 balls against Zimbabwe at Canberra on February 24, 2015.
Highest Knock Scored Against Bangladesh in ODIs
The previous record for the fastest ODI score against Bangladesh was held by Zimbabwe’s Charles Coventry, who scored 194* at Bulawayo on August 16, 2009. Now Kishan’s knock surpassed Bulawayo. The Ranchi-born player is also the first Indian to score a double ton away from India.
1st Batter to Score Double Ton on Bangladesh Soil
Aussie all-rounder Shane Watson smashed 185 at Mirpur on April 11, 2011. Kishan broke Watson’s record with his double hundred to become the highest run-scorer on Bangladesh soil in ODIs.
