The day is getting better and better for the 21-year-old Ishan Kishan.
On a day when Jharkhand’s wicketkeeper-batsman became the second Indian cricketer to make his ODI debut on his birthday, Kishan has now added two more feathers to his cap.
Ishan announced himself earlier this year against England in the international arena in T20I cricket by picking up his first delivery ever for a fourth.
He fared even better with his ODI debut against Sri Lanka, when he danced on the track and flattened Dhananjaya de Silva for a statement of six of his first delivery in a long time, becoming the first Indian batter to did this on ODI debut. .
Kishan, like Prithvi Shaw, launched a brutal attack on the Sri Lankan bowlers – especially their spinners – while regularly dancing on the track to hit them over the head, except for rocking back and smoking over the middle wheel. or lean forward to push them through the deck.
Kishan educated his first 50-year-old girlfriend during his ODI debut with his relentless deep-in-the-middle way from Asalanka. His 50 came off just 33 balls, which is the second few deliveries that took a better on ODI debut.

In the process, Ishan Kishan also became the first Indian batter to hit the T20I and ODI debuts in half a century.
Robin Uthappa also scored half a century in his first ODI (against England) and T20I innings (against Pakistan), but his debut T20 match against Scotland ended in a header.
Kishan was finally fired by a whirlwind 42-ball 59 by Lakshan Sandakan.
