Ishan Kishan hammers quickest ODI double century Pro Teachs


Ishan Kishan replaced regular captain Rohit Sharma, who was ruled out after injuring his left thumb in the second match. The southpaw, playing his first ODI against Bangladesh, not only scored his maiden hundred, he doubled it.

Ishan Kishan scored 210 off 131 balls. His knock was studded with 24 fours and ten sixes. The 24-year-old becomes the quickest as well as youngest to achieve the feat. He joined Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Rohit Sharma in the elite list. Rohit Sharma is the only batter, who has scored three double-hundreds in the ODI.

Ishan Kishanโ€™s hundred was also the first by an Indian opener in menโ€™s ODIs since Rohit Sharmaโ€™s 119 against Australia in January 2020.

Ishan reached the century mark in 85 ball, and then the next hundred came in just 41 balls.

The southpaw, who was struggling initially, put on 290 runs for the second wicket.

Earlier, angladesh captain Liton Das won the toss and decided to bowl first in the third and final one-day international against India on Saturday.

Aiming to sweep India 3-0 following its one-wicket and five-run victories in the first two matches, Bangladesh made two changes with batter Yasir Ali replacing Najmul Hossain and fast bowler Taskin Ahmed replacing left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed.

India, which has lost three consecutive ODI series for the first time since 1997, also made two changes.
