The 24-year-old Kishan hit the fastest double century in ODIs, breaking West Indies’ batter Chris Gayle’s record. He reached 200 off 126. Gayle had taken 138 balls to score 200 against Zimbabwe in the ICC World Cup 2015.

Dealing mostly in boundaries, the diminutive batter relished the short-pitched stuff and looked in total control on both sides of the wicket. Virat Kohli, who hit a century in the match, performed the bhangra before hugging the youngster after he reached his double century.

Kishan was drafted into the side in the absence of the injured captain Rohit Sharma and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Kishan is the fourth Indian, after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Rohit Sharma, to score an ODI double-century.

Here is the list of records broken by Ishan Kishan during his 210:

  • Ishan Kishan hit the fastest double century in ODIs, off 126 balls
