The limited overs series between India and Sri Lanka has begun. The two teams clashed in the first ODI in Colombo on Sunday. In this match, India gave two players – Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav a chance for ODI debut. Let us inform that wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan and Suryakumar, famous for batting by ticker, have made their debut in T20 Internationals. Both started their T20 career together against England in March this year. However, now Ishan has accomplished a special feat as soon as he debuted in ODIs.
Ishaan became the second Indian to do so
Ishan Kishan made his ODI debut on the occasion of his 23rd birthday. He has become the second cricketer from India, who started his ODI career on his birthday. Before him, only Gursharan Singh had done this. Gursharan Singh made his ODI debut against Australia in Hamilton on 8 March 1990. He was able to play only one ODI and one game in his career. Apart from this, talking about the overall figures, Ishan is the 16th player at the international level, who has made his debut on his birthday.
A player also made his debut from Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat in the first ODI. While India gave two players the opportunity to debut in ODIs, the opposition team Sri Lanka gave one player a chance to debut. Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who played 7 T20 matches for Sri Lanka, made his ODI debut. It is worth noting that due to the regular captain Virat Kohli on the tour of England, the command of the Indian team is in the hands of opener Shikhar Dhawan. Former veteran batsman Rahul Dravid is in Sri Lanka with the team as head coach.
