India opening batter Ishan Kishan smashed the fastest double century in ODI cricket on Saturday as he scored 210 against Bangladesh in the third and final game of the three-match series at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram.
With this knock, Ishan broke the seven-year-old record held by West Indies’ legend Chris Gayle of slamming the fastest 200 in a 50-overs contest. Ishan achieved the feat in just 126 balls while Gayle took 138 deliveries to reach the historic figure.
Ishan completed his maiden ODI century off 85 balls and then went in blitzkrieg mode as 156 of his runs came in just boundaries [24 fours and 10 sixes]. He was eventually caught near the boundary rope in the 36th over of the first innings, but believed that had he carried his bat through, he could have surely reached the 300-run mark.
“The wicket was too good to bat on. My intent was very clear – if the ball is there, I’ll go for it,” Ishan said at the end of India’s innings.
“Still feel when I got out – 15 overs were left. Could’ve scored 300 also,” he added.
Like many others, Ishan’s girlfriend Aditi Hundia – who is a model and has won numerous beauty pageants in her career – also took to Instagram to shower her love on the young India opener.
