Ishan Kishan put together a tremendous exhibition of power-hitting as his side recorded a 324-run win against Madhya Pradesh on Saturday in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Kishan struck 11 sixes and 19 fours during his 94-ball 173 - his highest List A score - at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. He reached his 50 in 42 balls, 100 in 74 balls and 150 in just 86 balls.

Kishan was one of the architects behind Mumbai Indians' title-winning run in the IPL last year. He hit the most sixes (29) in IPL 2020, three more than Sanju Samson, his nearest competitor.

He ended the T20 tournament as the fifth-highest run-scorer with 516 at a strike-rate of 145.76.

Kishan breaks record with the gloves

As much as his explosive batting, his glovework will be keenly watched, with India building towards a T20 World Cup later this year. On Saturday, Kishan safely pouched seven Madhya Pradesh batsmen. Kishan's tally of seven catches is the most by an Indian wicket-keeper in a match in List-A history.
