Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli among record makers and breakers

Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli

Ishan Kishan and Virat Kohli had outstanding knocks in the third and final one-day international match of the series against Bangladesh, which took place at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. As a result of their efforts, India achieved a massive score of 409 runs.

Ishan Kishan and Virat heaped on the misery for the Bangladeshi bowlers as they collected runs at whim to share a mammoth 290-run partnership for the second wicket while also attaining individual milestones in the process. The duo was instrumental in India reaching the 400-run mark in one-day international cricket for the sixth time.

The left-hander scored the fastest-ever double-hundred in one-day internationals, making him the fourth Indian player to reach this milestone. He became the fourth player in ODI cricket history to make a century, joining the ranks of legends such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Rohit Sharma.

To break the record held by Ricky Ponting of 71 international hundreds, Virat scored his 72nd century while playing for India in international cricket. This was the right-44th hander’s century in one-day internationals, which was achieved in the 50-over format after a hiatus of three years.

After it was determined that Rohit Sharma would not be able to play in the third One-Day International, India decided to start the match with Shikhar Dhawan and Ishan Kishan. While fielding in the slip cordon in the previous game, he sustained an injury to his left thumb.

As the batter, Dhawan was taken out by Mehidy Hasan Miraz in the fifth over, demonstrating once more that he could not put together a dominant performance in the series.

Virat Kohli and Kishan established a partnership for the ages to scare the Bangladeshi bowlers, looting them for runs all over the field. India’s batting would again struggle, as has been the case throughout the series.

The batting pair produced a run-fest for the Indian fans waiting for a sensational performance throughout the series.

In a knock that included ten sixes, Kishan blasted his way to 210 runs off 131 balls to finish the innings.

Ishan Kishan dismantled the bowlers by hitting the ball hard and aggressively from the very first delivery, capitalizing on the available batting pitch. The batsman reached his first hundred in 85 balls and then went on a rampage to complete his second hundred in 126 balls, thereby clinching his double hundred. He reached his distinctive three-figure mark by smashing 24 fours and ten sixes during his innings.

When Taskin Ahmed ran him out, the left-handed batter had 210 runs on the board. This score tied him with Fakhar Zaman of Pakistan for the fifth-highest score in men’s one-day international cricket. However, he was still 54 runs short of Rohit’s record of 264.

Virat completed his long-awaited 44th one-day international (ODI) century in 85 balls. He continued to amass 113 runs before being caught by Mehidy Hasan Miraz in the 42nd over of the game.

At the end of the 42nd over, India was 346/5 and appeared to be on track to record a big score. However, the team lost rapid wickets in the temptation to go ballistic in the death overs and was only able to score 70 runs in the final ten overs, bringing their total to 409/8.

Shakib Al Hasan was the most effective bowler for Bangladesh, as he took two wickets while allowing only 68 runs to be scored against him.

The Makers And Breakers Of Records

In a one-day international match against New Zealand in 1999, India’s greats Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid put up a partnership that scored 331 runs. This achievement gives them the record for India’s most significant partnership ever.

During the One-Day International World Cup match against Sri Lanka in Taunton, which also took place in the same year, former India captains Sourav Ganguly and Dravid had put on 318 runs together is the second-highest run total for India.

Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels of the West Indies in 2015 set the record for the most significant partnership in one-day international cricket. They added 372 runs together during an ODI World Cup match against Zimbabwe in 2015.

Ishan Kishan overshadowed Virat Kohli’s 113 runs from 91 balls in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) match between India and Bangladesh. In this encounter, India took the Bangladesh bowlers to the cleaners in the last game of the three-match series.

The left-handed batsman, who is 24 years old and left-handed, made the most of the opportunity he was given when he opened the batting in place of the injured Rohit Sharma.

On the other hand, Kohli moved ahead of Ricky Ponting on the list of batters who have scored the most hundreds in international competition.

After reaching 339/3 after 40 overs, India only scored 70 runs in the final ten overs while also losing five wickets.

Brief Score: India 409/8 (Ishan Kishan 210, Virat Kohli 113; Shakib Al Hasan 2-68) vs. Bangladesh.
