After the Indian innings, young batsman Ishan Kishan said a surprising statement about his stormy innings.
Ishan Kishan About His Double Century
“The pitch of the match was very good for batting. My intention was very clear – if the ball comes to me, I will hit it. I am blessed to hear my name among Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar, and Virender Sehwag. Still feel, there were 15 overs left when I got out. And I thought I could have scored 300 as well. It was nice batting with Virat Bhai and he has a great understanding of the game.”
Ishan Kishan In A Conversation With Virat And Suryakumar
“When I had crossed 90 runs, then Virat was asking me to keep calm. I wanted to complete this century with a six, but he said to score this century with a single because it will be my first century. Had a chat with Surya (Suryakumar Yadav) before the match, and he said that when you bat before the game, you see the ball very well. That’s why I didn’t take much pressure on myself and just wanted to take advantage of the opportunity.”
Ishan Kishan played an inning of 210 runs in 131 balls, which included 24 fours and 10 sixes. Ishan Kishan completed his double century in 126 balls and scored the fastest double century in ODI cricket.
