Ishan Kishan Sets Record by Surpassing Sachin Tendulkar
In a remarkable display of skill and talent, Ishan Kishan, despite India’s loss in the second ODI against the West Indies, achieved a significant milestone by scoring a half-century in consecutive matches. Notably, Kishan surpassed the legendary Sachin Tendulkar in this feat, further solidifying his place in the annals of cricket history.
As an opener, Ishan Kishan now holds the title of the highest run scorer by an Indian batsman in the first five ODIs, amassing a staggering total of 348 runs. This feat surpasses Tendulkar’s record of 321 runs in the initial 5 overs, underscoring Kishan’s exceptional form and prowess on the cricket field.
Following closely behind Kishan are Shubman Gill, with 320 runs, and Chris Srikanth, with 261 runs, both in pursuit of Tendulkar’s impressive numbers. Additionally, Kishan has also surpassed former captain MS Dhoni’s record of consecutive half-centuries as a wicket-keeper batsman, previously achieved in 2017 against the West Indies.
India’s Setback Against Windies
Unfortunately, India suffered a setback in the second ODI against the West Indies, resulting in a leveled three-match series. The Windies’ bowlers, Gudakesh Moti and Romario Sheppard, displayed exceptional skill, each securing three crucial wickets. India’s middle-order batsmen struggled to find success, leading to speculation regarding the team management’s decision to rest captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
On the other hand, the West Indies rose to the challenge, countering a formidable spell from Shardul Thakur, who claimed three wickets for 42 runs in eight overs. Captain Shai Hope showcased leadership with an unbeaten 63 runs off 80 balls, while KC Carty contributed an unbeaten 48 runs off 65 balls. Their partnership of 91 runs enabled the West Indies to chase down their target in just 36.4 overs.
Unforeseen Turn of Events
Despite a promising start from Ishan Kishan (55 off 55 balls) and Shubman Gill (34 off 49 balls), India suffered a sudden collapse, losing five wickets for just 23 runs in 7.2 overs. This unforeseen turn of events left spectators in awe of the West Indies’ resilient performance.
