Twitter Overjoyed As Ishan Kishan Scores Fastest Double Century
The slot for opening in the Indian cricket team is available to reserved players on rare occasions. When players get a golden opportunity to open for India, they try to make the most of it. And Ishan Kishan grabbed the opportunity with both hands as injured Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the third ODI match against Bangladesh on Saturday.

With a blistering knock, Kishan made history by being the fastest to hit a double century in ODIs. Also, he became the seventh batsman to achieve the feat in the 50-over format. The left-hander, who reached the double century in 126 balls after hitting nine sixes and 24 fours, joins Rohit Sharma, Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar as the only other Indians to have scored 200 runs or more in an ODI inning.
By the time Kishan departed, he had notched 210 runs – joining Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman on the fifth-highest score in men’s ODI cricket, 54 runs behind Rohit’s record of 264. The netizens were exhilarated by the youngster’s knock and heaped praises on him with open hearts and a tinge of humour.
Here’s how Twitter reacted:
