Ishan Kishan's knock against Bangladesh sees him enter the record books


Hit For Six!

Ishan Kishan was in scorching form against Bangladesh in the third ODI in Chattogram, scoring a scintillating double century.

Kishan was drafted in the playing XI to replace the injured skipper Rohit Sharma, opening the batting. He made his attacking intent right from the very off, playing some blazing shots. 

Despite losing opening partner Shikhar Dhawan early, Kishan embarked upon a sizzling stand with Virat Kohli. Kishan would bring up his first international century in the 24th over and then would only go on to up the ante. 

He would soon bring India's highest individual score against Bangladesh, surpassing Virender Sehwag's 175 in Mirpur in 2011. 

Kishan then had his sights on a landmark double century and would bring up the feat in the 35th over in only 126 balls. His knock was only the 9th double century in the history of ODI cricket and he would become the fourth Indian to do so. It was also the fastest double century in ODI cricket. 

The illustrious list of double centurions in ODI cricket includes Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, Chris Gayle, Martin Guptill and Fakhar Zaman. 

His knock of 210 off 131 deliveries would finally be brought to an end by Taskin Ahmed in 36th over, becoming the sixth highest score in the history of ODI cricket. 

His knock set up India to post a mammoth total of 409/8 in the contest.
