Ishan hits the nation's fastest double ton as it passes 400

India made a strong statement with the bat in the third ODI against Bangladesh in Chittagong, amassing 409/8 thanks in large part to a double hundred from Ishan Kishan and 113 from Virat Kohli.

Mehidy Hasan's LBW catch of Shikhar Dhawan in the fifth over gave India's innings a calm beginning. Following Rohit Sharma's injury, Kishan was added to the playing eleven and worked alongside Kohli to stabilize the innings. The two were able to accomplish it steadily, with Kohli not settling into a groove until he was in his forties. Kishan, on the other hand, swiftly established himself as the dominant partner in the 290-run stand by capitalizing on width outside off, cutting, and driving for his first four boundaries.

In order to increase the pressure on the bowlers, Kishan started to pull and sweep well while Bangladesh adjusted their lines to go straighter against him. He needed just 49 balls to get fifty, but not without a few narrow misses. Litton Das, who had another opportunity slip just beyond his reach off the same hitter, sent Kohli down on base at position five. Shakib Al Hasan, who was diving at deep midwicket, was unable to stop the catch from getting grassed despite a juggle as Kishan altered gears and smashed with abandon.

With a better understanding of the pitch now, Kishan was also able to loft and slog Mehidy Hasan straight down the ground despite the offspin's unfavorable matchup. After reaching fifty, he picked up the pace, and the second fifty took just 36 balls to complete, giving him his first ODI hundred. While Kishan was playing second fiddle to Kohli, Kohli had also found his rhythm and lofted Shakib inside out over cover for a boundary.

Since Kishan threw his bat out for every ball after reaching 100, he found that strike rotation was simple. Before the fourth took another 23 balls, his third fifty required another 18 balls.

With that, Kishan passed Chris Gayle's record of 138 balls faced to become the fourth Indian to score an ODI double hundred, the youngest male hitter to do so, and the fastest to reach the milestone overall.

More records were threatened as he persisted in this direction, but on 210, he was eventually expelled when he failed to clear long on. It came to an end after a knock that saw India cross the 300-run threshold in just the 36th over and featured a total of 24 fours and 10 sixes.

As Kohli now emerged from Kishan's shadow, he heavily targeted the cover region and quickly reached an 85-ball ton. As India sped toward a large total, he scored a hundred, surpassing Ricky Ponting's record of 71 international hundreds.

When they lost Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, then Kohli himself in rapid succession, that attempt was much hindered. Axar Patel and Washington Sundar, who batted later in the order, contributed 46 helpful runs that ultimately enabled India to reach the highest-ever ODI total in Bangladesh.
