Ishan Kishan’s astonishing double century and Virat Kohli’s century helped India score a staggering 409/8 against Bangladesh on Saturday in the third ODI. Kishan and Kohli’s 290-run stand for the second wicket, which was achieved in only 190 balls, was the highlight of the innings. In the partnership, Kishan scored 199 runs off 114 balls.

India has now scored more than 400 runs in an ODI inning six times. As a result, they have tied South Africa for the most 400+ scores in the format. Throughout most of the innings, India seemed to be on track to reach their highest-ever ODI total, but a string of wickets in the last overs stopped them from going over 410. The team’s best ODI total, 418/5 against the West Indies in December 2011, was achieved by Virender Sehwag, who also struck a double century.

South Africa last scored more than 400 runs in an ODI in October 2015 when centuries from Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis, and AB de Villiers helped them get to a total of 438/4 against India at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Additionally, it was the fourth time in that year that the South Africans’ ODI innings saw over 400 runs scored.

India is now surpassing the 400-run threshold in ODI cricket for the first time since November 2014. At the time, India had defeated Sri Lanka with a total of 404/5, with opener Rohit Sharma smashing 264 runs in only 173 balls. It continues to be the highest total achieved by a hitter in a men’s ODI game.

On Saturday, Kishan began the innings with Shikhar Dhawan instead of the injured Rohit. In the fifth over, Dhawan was out for just three runs, but Kishan and Kohli went after the bowlers. In the end, he finished his innings with 24 fours and 10 sixes. In the 36th over, Taskin Ahmed eventually got the better of Kishan. Kishan had just achieved his first international century.

Meanwhile, Kohli continued to score, reaching his 72nd international century overall and 44th ODI century. His last ODI century came in August of 2019 at Port of Spain against the West Indies, when he scored an unbeaten 114. At the end of his innings, Kohli was out for 113 off 91 balls after hitting 11 fours and two sixes. India is seeking a victory in Chattogram as a consolation prize after losing the three-match ODI series following two losses in Dhaka.
