Wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kisan has been in the limelight for playing a blistering half-century on ODI debut. In the first ODI against Sri Lanka, he scored 59 runs in 42 balls with 8 fours and 2 sixes. He made fifty in just 33 balls. Ishan’s stormy batsman can be gauged from the fact that he had hit the first ball of his innings. He did so off the fourth ball of the sixth over bowled by Dhananjay de Silva. Ishan has become the first player to hit a six off the first ball of ODI debut since 2001.
How did you get into the mood to hit a six off the first ball?
Ishan made a big disclosure by keeping the promise of hitting a six off the first ball. He told about this while interacting with Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal on BCCI’s Chahal TV. The Indian board shared this video on its official Twitter and wrote, ‘The return of Chahal TV – Ishan Kishan reveals the secret behind his first ball six.’ At the same time, Ishan said, ‘I knew spinners do not have much help in the wicket. So I thought now was the right time. I even went to tell you all that I am going to hit the ball for six. Whoever the bowler is and where he throws.
Significantly, Sri Lanka had set a target of 263 runs in front of India, which India achieved in 36.4 overs. Batting at number three, Ishan stayed till the 18th over. He shared an important 85-run partnership for the second wicket with Shikhar Dhawan. Interestingly, Ishan got the opportunity to start his ODI career on the occasion of his 23rd birthday. Not only did he score a half-century in ODIs but also in T20 International debut. He is the second Indian player, after Robin Uthappa, to score a fifty in the first match of ODI and T20 International cricket.
