IND vs NZ: Ishan Kishan responds wittingly to Rohit Sharma’s “Why haven’t you played after hitting a 200?”


On Thursday, Shubman Gill became the youngest batter to score a double century in ODI cricket and the fifth Indian to reach the landmark. Gill’s storming knock of 208 helped India defeat New Zealand by 12 runs.

There were only four Indian batters in the illustrious list before Gill, which included legendary Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan.

Kishan made it to the list recently when India toured Bangladesh, as he touched the 200-run mark at the age of 24 and became the youngest cricketer to smash a double ton. But with his recent exploits, Gill broke the record and achieved the feat at just 23.

Despite his blistering knock, Kishan didn’t get as many chances in the team and questions were raised by a few former cricketers regarding the same. The wicket-keeper-batter was benched in the entire ODI series against Sri Lanka until he finally got the chance in the first match against New Zealand.

Kishan was included in the playing eleven as a replacement for KL Rahul, who is unavailable for the series due to some personal reasons. In the series opener, Kishan was sent down the order to bat at no. 4.

Now, a video has been released by the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) that shows Rohit and Ishan welcoming Shubman to the 200 club after the victory over New Zealand.

The conversation starts with Rohit lauding Gill for his knock and Ishan asking about the pre-match routine of the Punjab lad. Further in the video Indian skipper welcomes Gill to the 200 club.

At the end of the video, Rohit can be heard saying to Ishan why he hasn’t played even three matches post scoring a double ton in the 50-overs format, to which the latter replies, “brother you’re the captain”. And soon after Ishan’s witty response, all three in the frame burst into laughter.

“Ishan, yaar aapne 200 banake 3 match nahi khela. (Ishan, you didn’t play even three matches despite scoring a 200),” Rohit said.

“Bhaiyya captain toh aap ho (Brother, you are the captain),” replied Kishan.

Here’s the video:
