Ishan Kishan Slams 173 from 94 Balls in Vijay Hazare Trophy, Makes Strong Case for India Selection

With just a few months to go for IPL 2021, Jharkhand batsman Ishan Kishan has set the tone in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. The left-hander smashed a scintillating 173 from just 94 balls against Madhya Pradesh. He shot 19 fours and 11 sixes at MP's Holker Stadium in Indore. This is now the seventh-highest score in the championship ever, with the record standing at 212, by Sanju Samson.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions:

After being asked to bat, Kishan started out slowly, and his partner Utkarsh Singh was dismissed early for 6. It was then that Kishan took matters in his own hands and started playing his shots. He brought up his fifty in 40 deliveries and started to accelerate after that. It was with this effort that Jharkhand brought up their 100 in just the 17th over.

He was ably supported by talented batsman Virat Singh, who too smashed a quickfire fifty. He was finally dismissed for 68 from 49 balls.
