Indian batting sensation Shubman Gill has etched his name in the annals of cricket history by achieving a remarkable feat in One Day Internationals (ODIs). In the ongoing series decider against West Indies, Gill surpassed Pakistan’s Imam-ul-Haq to become the batter with the most runs after 27 games in the 50-over format. This outstanding achievement showcases Gill’s exceptional talent and skill as a young opener for the Indian cricket team.
In the crucial third ODI against West Indies at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad, Shubman Gill showcased his prowess with the bat. Although he had missed out on big scores in the previous matches, he rose to the occasion when it mattered the most. Gill played a magnificent innings, helping his team gain a significant advantage in the series decider.
The young batter looked in complete control throughout his innings, exuding class and confidence. Gill formed a crucial 143-run opening partnership with Ishan Kishan, who scored a blistering 77. Their partnership gave India a flying start and laid the foundation for a formidable total.
Gill’s innings were a masterclass in batting, but he narrowly missed out on a well-deserved century. Battling against the West Indies bowling attack, the opener scored 85 runs off 92 balls, including 11 elegant boundaries. This knock boosted India’s total to 351 runs on the board, a score that set them on a strong path to victory.
Besides overtaking Imam-ul-Haq’s record, Shubman Gill was on the verge of breaking another significant Indian record. If he scored the century mark, he would have become the quickest Indian batter to score five centuries in ODIs, surpassing the ever-consistent Shikhar Dhawan. This further highlights Gill’s potential to become one of India’s premier batting stars.
