In the third ODI match of the India tour of Bangladesh 2022, India defeated Bangladesh by runs at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.
Toss was won by Bangladesh captain Litton Das who asked India to bat first. While the Men in Blue lost Shikhar Dhawan early on, Ishan Kishan (210) played an unbelievable knock which has listed his name with some of the greats of the game. The southpaw batter hammered a quick-fire double hundred which helped India to put over 400 runs on the board. The 24-year-old hit 24 fours and 10 colossal sixes and thus also became the fastest batter to score 200 runs. Virat Kohli (113) also joined the party and scored his 72nd ton. The Delhi-based batter became the fastest to reach the feat. He is also now only behind the great Sachin Tendulkar in terms of international centuries. Kohli, for most of the innings, was just guiding the ball away for just singles and was enjoying the ‘Kishan Show’ from the other end. Towards the end, Washington Sundar (37) and Axar Patel (20) provided valuable contributions which took India to 409/8 in 50 overs.
While chasing in the second innings, no batter could show any character which could give Bangla fans any hope. Skipper Das (29) got a few runs under his belt at the start and with him, veteran player Shakib Al Hassan (43) also helped Bangladesh get a decent start. Other than these two batters, Yasir Ali (25), Mahmudullah (20), Taskin Ahmed (17) and Mustafizur Rahman (13) were the only batters to get into two digits. The home team got bundled for just 182 runs in 34 overs.
Shardul Thakur was once again fine with the ball as he picked three wickets while defending. Umran Malik and Axar Patel also managed to grab two wickets each and with them, Mohammad Siraj got one wicket.
For Bangladesh, two wickets each were taken by Shakib Al Hassan, Ebadot Hossain and Taskin Ahmed. Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mustafizur Rahman also picked one wicket each.
Ishan Kishan was awarded the man of the match for his outstanding knock. Following this win, India have managed to avoid a whitewash in the three-match ODI series.
