ColomboDebut star Ishan Kishan broke many records in the first ODI of the series against Sri Lanka. Ishaan’s brilliant wicketkeeping was also seen in the second ODI on Tuesday at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. He took one catch and one run out in the match. The discussion of run out is happening a lot on social media. On the third ball of the last over, he ran out batsman Lakshan Sandakan of the opposition team. Actually, Sandakan wanted to steal the run fast, but Ishan Kishan, who was behind the wicket, threw the under-arm ball and scattered the bails of the stumps. After this he was found in the mic telling captain Shikhar Dhawan that Bol has been run out. He understood that Sandakan would try to give the strike to Karunaratne by taking a run, as he was batting well. Ishaan took advantage of this. Talking about Sri Lanka’s innings, he gave India a target of 276 runs with the help of brilliant innings of Charith Asalanka (65) and Avishka Fernando (50). Batting first after winning the toss, Asalanka scored 65 runs off 68 balls with the help of six fours and Avishka scored 275 for nine in 50 overs with the help of four fours and a six from 71 balls. In Sri Lanka’s innings, Chamika Karunaratne played an unbeaten 44 off 33 balls with the help of five fours. For India, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal took three wickets each and Deepak Chahar took two wickets.
