Ishan Kishan amazed fans with a scintillating knock of 52 runs off 34 balls in India’s second Test against West Indies.

What caught everyone’s attention was the bat he used throughout his innings, with ‘RP17’ proudly displayed on its surface. This immediately drew comparisons to the flamboyant Rishabh Pant, another Indian wicketkeeper-batsman known for his audacious stroke play. In a fashion reminiscent of Pant, he smashed a stunning one-handed six to reach the milestone.

Kishan’s one-handed six helped him reach his maiden Test fifty as India declared at 182/2, holding a formidable 364-run lead.

In the second Test, India showcased their dominance by limiting the hosts to 255 runs and posting an impressive 438-run total in the first innings. Their second innings started with a bang as they broke the world record for the fastest team to reach 100 runs in Test history, taking only 12.2 overs.

Ishan Kishan, resembling Rishabh Pant’s audacity, added to the spectacle with unorthodox shots until rain interrupted the play.
