India dominated Bangladesh in the third and final one-day international of the series, winning by a huge margin of 227 runs at Chattogram on Saturday. The Indian squad, without its captain Rohit Sharma, stepped up to prevent a series clean-sweep as rookie Ishan Kishan cranked up the heat with an unbelievable double-century. The series had already been lost following tight losses in the first two games.

In addition to breaking Chris Gayle of the West Indies, a legend, as the quickest player to achieve the milestone, Kishan became only the fourth Indian to do so in ODIs. Gayle had scored 200 runs in 138 pitches, while Kishan had done the same in 126.

The Indian cricket community congratulated Kishan after the game for his outstanding performance, but experienced wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik thinks India has already selected who would take over as the keeper responsibilities in the fifty-over World Cup next year—and it’s not Ishan Kishan.

“From the perspective of team India, I believe they are attempting to maximize KL Rahul’s potential. If Rohit hadn’t been hurt in the previous game, Rahul would have started. When questioned on Cricbuzz about whether Ishan Kishan might have been assigned the wicketkeeping duties in the last ODI against Bangladesh, Karthik said, “They want him to bat at 5 and acquire more experience there.

Ishan Kishan might have stepped in for this game, but so far at the World Cup, they are treating him as a goalie; whether this is correct or not, time will tell. He seems to be the keeper right now, therefore he will undoubtedly continue acting in that way, Karthik said.

KL Regarding Kishan’s outstanding performance in the ODI at Chattogram, Rahul had said that the young guy “took the chance with both hands.”

“We anticipated this from our team. It was set up for us by Virat and Kishan. Shichan seized the chance with both hands. He batted quite well. Virat also gave him advice and utilized his expertise, “During the post-game presentation, Rahul had remarked.
