Ishan Kishan was eyeing 300 as he scored the fastest double century in ODI history during India's 227-run hammering of Bangladesh in Chattogram.
Kishan bludgeon an incredible 210 off 131 deliveries to ensure his side ended a three-match series they lost 2-1 on a high note on Saturday.
With 200 brought up off 126 balls, to beat former West Indies opener Chris Gayle's previous record off 138 deliveries, Kishan made history with a staggering innings.
The 24-year-old, who struck 10 sixes and 24 fours, was scenting a triple century before he was dismissed by Taskin Ahmed.
"When I got out, 15 overs were left," he added. "That's 90 balls. If you play 45 balls, it's easy to get another hundred when you are that set.
"Bowlers are under pressure. I was in the zone to get 300, but unfortunately I didn't. But it was special one to get my name up there with so many legendary players."
Kishan's feats drew plaudits from a slew of India stars past and present, with many taking to social media to hail his performance following the match.
Yuvraj Singh described it as the "innings of a lifetime" while Jasprit Bumrah as "just sensational".
Virender Sehwag said Kishan's stunning knock could help set a blueprint for the rest of his team-mates.
"That’s the way to do it," he wrote on Twitter. "Brilliant from Ishan Kishan. This is the approach that will do Team India a world of good."
India now will face Bangladesh in two Test matches, the first of which starts at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on Wednesday.
