Sunil Gavaskar, in conversation with Sony Sports during India vs Bangladesh Test series, wasn’t shy of showering all kinds of praises on Ishan Kishan, who had scored a sensational and record-breaking 210 against Litton Das’ men in the third ODI match of the tour. He broke a plethora of records in becoming just the fourth Indian batter to reach the landmark, joining the likes of Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar, and Virender Sehwag.

Sunil Gavaskar opined that had he continued batting in that game, where he was dismissed in the 36th over, he would have scored the first-ever triple hundred in ODIs.

Describing the same, Sunil Gavaskar said, “When we see the younger players coming through, it means there is hope for the future. Ishan Kishan probably stands out with his double hundred, which was in a 50-overs game and that’s a fantastic achievement. He got it so easily. And he got in what 35 or 36th over. If he had carried on he would have gotten the first ever triple hundred in ODIs. It will happen with the way he is batting.”

He further added, “That is a huge plus as India is concerned. He has this terrific ability to play all around the ground. His square cut…he is also like Rishabh Pant who like to pepper the on side. But a 200 is an amazing achievement and at such a young age. So I think sky’s the limit as far as the white-ball cricket is concerned.”

India’s next white-ball assignment begins from January 3 onwards when they take on Sri Lanka at home for three T20Is followed by as many ODIs.
