Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021: Jharkhand captain Ishan Kishan shows an incredible exhibition of power-hitting in a match against Madhya Pradesh on Saturday (December 20). The skipper notched 173 off 94 deliveries, comprising 19 fours and 11 massive sixes - his highest List A score and it comes at the jam-packed MP's Holker Stadium in Indore. The southpaw achieved the feat against a strong Madhya Pradesh team.

With the IPL 2021 up for grab, the reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI) batsman and former India U-19 vice-captain make his intentions very clear by smacking the quickest centuries in the history of the 50-over in the domestic circuit. Kishan blasts this scintillating knock just ahead of the upcoming 14th edition of the cash-rich league.

Notably, his innings now stand as the 7th-highest score in the history of the tournament with Kerala batsman Sanju Samson's 129-ball 212 against Goa in 2019 stands tall up till now. Under-19 icon Yashashvi Jaiswal's 203 off 154 against Jharkhand the same year is on second in the list behind Karn Kaushal's 202 against Sikkim is third in the list.
