Ishan Kishan, the India opener, made ODI history by scoring the quickest double-century ever. Ishan broke Chris Gayle’s record by launching 210 off only 131 balls and reaching 200 off just 126 deliveries. Ishan is the first player to have made a double century in his maiden ODI, and his blitz helped India score a staggering total of 409/8. And even though India lost the series 1-2, Ishan’s performance was the team’s finest asset.

Ishan became the fourth Indian cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Rohit Sharma to achieve an ODI double century with his historic double, joining an exclusive and uncommon group of hitters. Ishan’s aggressive batting style has often been compared to that of the famous MS Dhoni. Ishan has often acknowledged that Dhoni had a significant part in his career. Ishan is a native of Jharkhand, the same region of India where Dhoni is from. Although Ishan has always admired MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, who possesses a batting style extremely similar to Dhoni’s, was Ishan’s hero before MSD.

“Perhaps I bat like this because I’ve seen so many of his highlights, like how he destroyed all the bowlers — like Brett Lee and Shoaib Akhtar — and everyone else on the field. I prefer to play aggressively, so maybe he gave me that inclination. Maybe he gave it to me. Additionally, I once saw Adam Gilchrist “In a post on OneCricket, Ishan.

If one looks closely, there are more parallels between Ishan and Sehwag than are first apparent. Ishan had noted after his 210 that he might have added a triple century with 15 more overs left, but he wasn’t thinking about breaking the record while batting. Similar to Sehwag, he didn’t give a damn if he was batting on 0, 99, or even 199, and maybe as a result, he was out for 195 and 293 runs throughout his Test career.

Ishan revered both Dhoni and Gilchrist equally, but when forced to choose only one, his decision was rather straightforward. ” MS Dhoni. I like Adam Gilchrist’s batting and fielding abilities, but Dhoni bhai, I have observed him in all aspects of his life, including his poise and actions both on and off the field. how he greets people. Therefore, understanding how you operate and how he accomplishes things in particular matters as well. He has aided me in learning how to take care of myself among others as well “Ishan stated.
