On Saturday, Team India defeated Bangladesh by a massive 227-run margin in the third and final ODI of the series in Chattogram. Ishan Kishan was the match’s highlight, becoming only the fourth Indian to hit a double century in ODIs; he struck 210 off just 131 deliveries, breaking West Indies great Chris Gayle’s international record for the fastest double tonne in the game’s history.
Ishan Kishan spoke in depth about his innings, which included a crucial 290-run partnership with Virat Kohli, who also blasted his 44th ODI century – and 72nd century in international cricket.

Ishan Kishan Disclose His Conversation With Virat Kohli After Scoring 200
Ishan Kishan disclosed his conversation with Kohli over a SonyLIV chat as the former was reaching his double ton. When he was in his 190s, the 24-year-old hitter said he was always pushing Kohli to ‘take singles’ and not play aggressive shots.
“Main jab 197 pe tha, mujhe lag raha tha ki Mustafizur ek slower one daalega toh main chhakka mar du aage badhke. But mujhe ek match mein mauka mila tha iss series me, aur main ye opportunity miss nahi karna chahta tha, toh maine unko bola ki bhaiya please mere ko bolte rehna ‘single le, single le’ varna main uda dunga.

(When I was at 197, I thought Mustafizur will bowl a slower ball and I can hit him for a six. But then, I knew that I only had this one game in this series and I didn’t want to miss this opportunity. So, I went to Virat bhaiya and told him to keep telling me to take singles, or else I will hit an aggressive shot),” Kishan said.
“Toh he was just reminding me ki single lena hai. Fir khushi mein maine dekha nahi ki kaun kahan hai, Virat bhai peeche the toh unhone bola balla mujhe naa maar de.
(So, he was just reminding me for that. When I reached my double century, I didn’t realise who was near me when the celebration happened. Virat bhai came from behind and said you could’ve hit me with the bat!),” Kishan further revealed.
While Ishan Kishan struck a double century, Kohli rejoiced as if it were his own. When Ishan went off for his 200th run, Kohli, who was approaching the striker’s end, hoisted his bat in celebration even before the single was completed.
As Ishan removed his helmet and enjoyed his time in the sun with a tremendous jump and yell, Kohli approached with a few bhangra motions before Ishan joined in.
Bangladesh won the ODI series 2-1 after claiming narrow victory in the first two matches. The two teams will resume to action on December 14 for a two-match Test series.
