Excellent class, even more excellent timing.. along with it a huge hunger to score runs.. All these combine to make Team India’s young player Shubman Gill. Badshah’s innings in Hyderabad broke many years old records in ODI cricket and became the new king of Team India. Before the first ODI against New Zealand, everyone was talking about Virat Kohli’s return to form. But, Shubman Gill made all of them mesmerize and wrote his name not only in Uppal Stadium but also in world cricket. He is stealing the hearts of the fans by raining runs with his bat. Shubman, who scored a century in the recent ODI against Sri Lanka, also destroyed the New Zealand bowlers in Hyderabad with the same ferocious innings. Shubman Gill scored a century here as well. With this he broke many records.
Shubman Gill completed his century in just 87 balls in Hyderabad ODI. Gill completed his century on the basis of 2 sixes and 14 fours. He achieved many big milestones in the process of scoring his third century in ODIs.
Fastest 1000 runs..
