New Delhi. The proposed three-match ODI series between India and Sri Lanka has come to an end. The Blue Army captured the prestigious series 3-0. The last match of the ODI series was played on 15 January at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. In this exciting match, Virat Kohli and young opener Shubman Gill scored centuries for the country. King Kohli managed to score an unbeaten 166 in 110 balls in the last match. While facing 97 balls, Gill played an excellent inning of 116 runs.
Yuvraj Singh was in awe of Gill’s innings:
Former veteran cricketer Yuvraj Singh is very happy with this fine innings of Shubman Gill. He had expressed hope of a century from him while praising Gill even before this excellent innings. Young Gill has also lived up to the expectations of his mentor.
Before Gill’s century, Yuvraj praised him and said, ‘Well played, I hope you will make a century. Virat is also looking strong at the other end, but is the half-empty stadium a concern? Is ODI cricket dying out?
This question of Yuvraj is worth considering. People’s interest in ODI format is gradually decreasing. Not only this, many ardent players of world cricket are calling this format boring. Recently some players have also announced their retirement from this format. In such a situation, with this statement of Yuvraj, the lines on the forehead of many boards including BCCI, ICC are going to increase.
Shubman Gill scored second century of ODI career:
Shubman Gill appeared in a different style in the third ODI against Sri Lanka. Opening the innings for the Blue team, he scored a century of 116 runs in 97 balls at a strike rate of 119.58. Meanwhile, 14 fours and two excellent sixes came out of his bat.
