It's not often that Virat Kohli scores a century and is overshadowed by someone else. In Chattogram on Saturday, though, Kohli was not just put in the shade, but almost footnoted by Ishan Kishan, who slammed the quickest double-century in ODIs, off just 126 balls, to become all the talk. We'll bring you the talk elsewhere. For now, the numbers.
126 - Balls Kishan needed for his double-century, the fastest in ODI cricket.
The previous fastest in men's ODIs was 138 balls by Chris Gayle, against Zimbabwe in 2015 World Cup, while the quickest double in all ODIs [across men and women] was Amelia Kerr's 134 ball effort against Ireland in 2018.
0 - Players to convert their first ODI century into a double century before Kishan. The previous highest score for the first century was 194* by Charles Coventry, against Bangladesh in 2009 in Bulawayo.
24y 145d - Kishan's age on Saturday, making him the youngest player to score a double-hundred in men's ODIs. The previous youngest was Rohit Sharma, who was 26 years and 186 days old at the time of his first double in 2013 against Australia.
1 - Kishan is now the first batter to score a double-century in ODI cricket against Bangladesh. The previous highest score against Bangladesh was the unbeaten 194 by Coventry.
0 - Number of individual ODI scores in Bangladesh higher than Kishan's 210. The previous highest score on Bangladesh soil was by Shane Watson, who scored an unbeaten 185 in 2011 in Dhaka.
34.6 - Team overs when Kishan reached 200 in Chattogram, the earliest point any batter has completed the landmark in ODIs. The previous earliest was in 43.3 overs by Virender Sehwag when he scored 219 against West Indies in 2011.
156 - Runs scored by Kishan in boundaries during his 210-run knock. Only two batters have scored more in boundaries in an ODI innings - 186 by Rohit against Sri Lanka in 2014 and 162 by Martin Guptill against West Indies in 2015.
103 - Balls Kishan needed to reach the 150-run mark - the fastest individual 150 by an Indian in men's ODIs. Sehwag held the record for bringing up his 150 in 112 balls against West Indies in 2011.
290 - Partnership runs for the second wicket between Kishan and Kohli, the highest for any wicket in ODIs against Bangladesh. The previous best was the unbeaten 282-run opening stand between Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock in 2017.
68.6 - Percentage of runs scored by Kishan during the 290-run stand with Kohli, the highest contribution by a single batter in a 200-plus runs partnership in men's ODIs (where data is available). The previous highest was 65.6% by Tom Latham, who scored 145 out of 221 with Kane Williamson against India last month. The Kishan-Kohli stand is also the second-fastest 200-plus stand by run rate in men's ODIs.
409 for 8 - India's total in Chattogram, is now the first 400-plus ODI total against Bangladesh and the first by any team in Bangladesh. The previous highest against Bangladesh was 391 for 4 by England in 2019, while India's 370 for 4 in 2011 was the previous highest in Bangladesh.
