IND vs BAN: “I’ve seen Virender Sehwag hit bowlers like Brett Lee and Shoaib Akhtar all over the place” – Ishan Kishan

In the ODI against Bangladesh, Ishan Kishan scored a brilliant 210-run double century off 131 balls with 24 fours and 10 sixes. Kishan completed his 200th run in just 126 balls and broke Chris Gayle’s record for the fastest double century in world cricket history.

Ishan is the fourth Indian after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Rohit Sharma to score a double century in ODIs. Ishan’s attack batting style has been compared to that of MS Dhoni. Ishan hails from Jharkhand, the same state as Dhoni, and often credits Dhoni with playing an important role in his career.

Could have gone for 300 – Ishan Kishan

Ishan Kishan stated that Virender Sehwag was his idol before MSD and his hitting approach is quite similar to his. Kishan explained how he watched Sehwag’s innings and how he took his aggressive approach to hitting.

“I know there were still 15 overs to go so right now when I look at my highlights I keep thinking about the fact that there were 15 overs and maybe I could have gone for 300 but I think my wrists were gone.” Ishan Kishan told OneCricket.

“Maybe I bat like that because I watch a lot of Virender Sehwag highlights and have seen him hit bowlers like Brett Lee and Shoaib Akhtar all over the ground and maybe I got the attacking instinct from him.” Kishan further added.

MS Dhoni Safe – Ishan Kishan

Ishan idolized both Dhoni and Gilchrist, but when he had to choose one, he said it was Dhoni. He said Dhoni’s calm both on and off the pitch helps a person grow.

“MS Dhoni for sure. I love Adam Gilchrist’s hitting and keeping skills from him, but Dhoni bhai, I’ve seen it all over the place in what he does on the field, off the field, calm and everything.”

“The way he knows everyone. So these things matter too: how it works and knowing how it does it and in what way. It has also helped me a lot, how to take care of yourself when you are around people.”
