‘Ek bihari, poore bangladesh pe bhari…’ – Fans can’t keep calm as Ishan Kishan scores fastest double century in the history of ODI cricket


Young Indian opener Ishan Kishan has stunned and impressed everyone with his historic double century against Bangladesh in the ongoing third and last of the three-match ODI series. Notably, the 24-year-old has also smashed the fastest-ever double-century in the history of ODI cricket. He scored 210 runs off 131 balls with 24 boundaries and 10 sixes to his name.

It is also the first match of this series against Bangladesh in which the Indian management gave a chance to the Jharkhand batter. Bangla skipper Litton Das won the toss and decided to bowl first but Ishan Kishan proved the former’s decision wrong with a swashbuckling double-century knock of 210 runs in his first-ever century of the international career.

The entire cricketing fraternity including the fans, experts, and veterans of the game left awestruck following this memorable knock from the young Indian wicketkeeper-batter.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

Speaking of the match between India and Bangladesh so far, the men in blue have scored 320 runs for the loss of two wickets in only 37.5 overs. Virat Kohli is currently there in the middle with an individual score of 97 runs.

At the time of filling this copy, Shreyas Iyer has fallen prey to Ebadot Hossain following the departure of double centurion Ishan Kishan from Taskin Ahmed.

Earlier, the visitors got an early blow in the form of Shikhar Dhawan only on a total score of 15 runs. But the pair of former skipper Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan stitched an outstanding partnership of 290 runs for the second wicket.

India is playing in this match in the absence of their regular skipper Rohit Sharma who was ruled out of the this ongoing last ODI of the series.

In the absence of Rohit Sharma, his deputy and senior wicketkeeper-batter KL Rahul is leading the Indian team in the role of a stand-in skipper.
