Ishan Kishan’s girlfriend Aditi Hundia reacts to her boyfriend’s double century against Bangladesh in the third ODI.
Ishan scored 210 runs for India as he hit 24 fours and 10 sixes in his big performance. After Ishan Kishan’s historic knock, his girlfriend Aditi Hundia shared the BCCI post on her Instagram story.
Kishan accelerated at an astonishing pace after hitting an already brisk opening international century off 85 deliveries. He took just 18 more balls to reach his 150 and hit the 200 mark in another 23. The wicketkeeper-batsman scored 150 just outside the boundaries, with 24 fours and 10 sixes across the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. It took an excellent running catch to dislodge Kishan for 210 off 131 by Bangladesh captain Litton Das, who avoided a collision with the advancing fielder on the edge of the straight boundary while keeping his eyes on the ball as he ran. from long-on.
The left-hander was the fourth opening partner India used in the last four ODIs for Shikhar Dhawan, who failed for the fifth consecutive game. But Kishan bowled a slow pitch early on to keep attacking the Bangladesh bowlers throughout after the hosts decided to edge.
Unlike Dhaka, there was green grass on the Chattogram surface, which meant that despite the general slowness of the wickets in these parts, the slower ones did not grip nor did the spinners find support. That allowed the batsmen to force the ball out, even if they couldn’t time it. The former is Kishan’s style anyway. The areas he targets are also very specific, and he stuck to his strengths for nearly 36 overs. All his ten sixes swung in the arc from long-on to long leg. His four legs had a longer range; he would push the ball straight down the ground or through extra cover or cut and sweep hard.
