Indian debut birthday

Wicket-keeper batsman and debutant Ishan Kishan blazed off to his maiden ODI Fifty in just 33 balls. He started his ODI career with a six and showed us glimpses of his fearless batting throughout. The debutant scored 59 runs in 42 deliveries. Before he got out he hot 8 fours and 2 sixes.

Ishan Kishan is no stranger when it comes to scoring fifties on debut. He is one of the two Indian players to score a half-century on debut in both ODI and T20I cricket. The other player to achieve this feat was Robin Uthappa.

Robin Uthappa scored 86 on his ODI debut against England while chasing. While he scored 50 against Pakistan in 2007 at Indore. Ishan Kishan scored 56 on his T20I debut against England earlier this year.

The wicket-keeper batsman is extremely talented and has displayed his aggressive approach. He played brilliant shots today and has helped India’s chase against Sri Lanka.
