New Delhi. Shubman Gill, who is raining runs, has hit another century. Shubman Gill, who scored a double century just a week ago, played a brilliant inning of 112 runs in the third ODI against New Zealand. He hit 13 fours and 5 sky-high sixes in his 78-ball innings. Gill shared a 212-run partnership with captain Rohit Sharma during this innings. This is also India’s lowest opening partnership against New Zealand. Rohit Sharma also scored a century.
This is Shubman Gill’s fourth ODI century. With this century, Gill has become the Indian cricketer to score 4 centuries in the shortest match. This is his 21st match. Before Shubman, this record was in the name of Shikhar Dhawan. He scored his fourth century in the 24th ODI innings. Shubman Gill had played an unmatched inning of 208 against New Zealand in Hyderabad.
The third ODI match between India and New Zealand was played in Indore. New Zealand captain Tom Latham won the toss and decided to field first. This decision backfired for New Zealand when Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill shared a 212-run partnership.
With this century, Shubman Gill has equaled the world record for scoring the most runs in a 3-match ODI series. This record is in the name of Babar Azam of Pakistan. Babar scored 360 runs in 3 matches against the West Indies in 2016. Now Shubman Gill has also scored 360 runs in just 3 matches against New Zealand.
