Domestic career edit

On 6 November 2016, Kishan scored 273 runs against Delhi in the 2016–17 Ranji Trophy, setting a new record for a player for Jharkhand in the competition.[9][10] He was the leading run-scorer for Jharkhand in the 2017–18 Ranji Trophy, with 484 runs in six matches[11] and in the 2018–19 Vijay Hazare Trophy, with 405 runs in nine matches.[12]

In October 2018, he was named in the India C squad for the 2018–19 Deodhar Trophy,[13] scoring a century in the tournament's final.[14] In February 2019, in the 2018–19 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, he scored an unbeaten century against Jammu and Kashmir.[15] In the next match, against Manipur, he scored 113 not out to record back-to-back centuries in the tournament.[16]

In August 2019, he was named in India Red's squad for the 2019–20 Duleep Trophy[17][18] and in October in the India A squad for the same competition.[19] In February 2021, on the opening day of the 2020–21 Vijay Hazare Trophy, Kishan scored 173 runs against Madhya Pradesh, part of a record score of 422.[20][21]

Ahead of the 2022 IPL, Kishan was bought again by Mumbai for 15.25 crore (equivalent to 16 crore or US$2.0 million in 2023), making him the second-most expensive Indian player at the auction after Yuvraj Singh.[26]

He scored 210 runs from 131 balls,[34] reaching the 200-run mark in 126 deliveries to beat Chris Gayle's record of 138 balls.[34] He also became the first player to convert a maiden ODI century into a double century,[2] and the fourth Indian player to score a double century in an ODI.[35]

In September 2023, Kishan was selected in India's squad for 50-over World Cup.[36] He was picked as the replacement to the regular opener Shubman Gill in the first match against Australia, but could not score a run.[37][38] However, in the second game against Afghanistan, he scored 47 runs off 47 balls.[39]
