NEW DELHI: Opener Ishan Kishan made history in the 3rd ODI against Bangladesh at Chattogram when he became the first batsman to convert his maiden ODI ton into a double hundred and also the fourth Indian batsman to hit a double century in one-day internationals.
Batting in place of injured captain Rohit Sharma, Ishan reached the milestone off 126 balls, the fastest in the world.


Smashing the Bangladesh bowlers to all parts of the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Ishan reached his 50 off 49 balls, 100 off 85 balls and 150 off 103 balls.

Ishan hit 24 fours and 10 sixes in his blitzkrieg knock and he fell for 210 in the 36th over with India having 305 runs on the board.

Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is the first batsman to hit a ODI double hundred and since then Virender Sehwag and Rohit Sharma have also hit ODI double centuries. Rohit has, in fact, hit 3 double tons to his credit in ODI cricket.

Apart from these four Indian batsmen, Fakhar Zaman (Pakistan), Chris Gayle (215) and Martin Guptill (New Zealand) have also hit ODI double centuries.
