It is said that troubled times bring out the heroes, and we saw that on Saturday during the final ODI vs Bangladesh. Coming into the game the Indian team had just one aim mind and that was to avoid a 3-0 loss.
India had lost the first 2 games of the series in a close manner thanks to the brilliance of Mehidy Hasan on both occasions. The Indian team were battered and bruised after those two losses and facing a host of injury issues and concerns coming into the game.
The story as it happened –
Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bowl first on a wicket which had a lot of grass. The hosts had Taskin Ahmed back into the team, while India made two changes as well. Ishan Kishan and Kuldeep Yadav came into the team to replace Rohit Sharma and Deepak Chahar.

Special day for the young man –
Kishan before this knock had a best of 93 which he had scored against South Africa just a few months ago at Ranchi. The 24 year old asked to open the innings went after the Bangladeshi bowlers right from the start. He showed his attacking instincts dispatching every bowler to the boundary.Kishan let out a huge roar after reaching his 1st ODI ton and then went about to take the opposition to the cleaners. He reached his double century in mere 126 balls beating the previous best by Chris Gayle which came of 138 balls. He was soon out going for another big hit off the bowling of Taskin Ahmed caught by Liton Das.
