Shubman Gill
In the game against New Zealand, Shubman Gill saw action.

In Wednesday’s ODI encounter between India and New Zealand, Shubman Gill smashed a remarkable double century.

During Wednesday’s first ODI between India and New Zealand in Hyderabad, Shubman Gill smashed his first double century off just 145 balls. There were 19 fours and 8 enormous sixes in his innings, making him the fifth Indian batsman to reach the milestone. Previously, this has been accomplished by Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, and Ishan Kishan. Previously held by Kishan, he broke the record by becoming the youngest cricketer to score a double century in one-day internationals.

The youthful player seemed invincible against the New Zealand bowlers and delivered a near-perfect performance. After putting together a good 50-run opening wicket partnership with Rohit, he was removed, but Gill kept going unhindered by the pitch’s even bounce.

Even after India lost Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan early wickets, the right-hander kept playing his shots. Gill not only scored his third ODI century, but he also overtook Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan to become the fastest Indian batsman to amass 1000 ODI runs.

After he passed 100, scoring runs became simpler, and he continued to attack nearly every bowler. Gill reached his 150 in 122 balls, and despite losing partners at the other end, his relentless batting helped push India past 300.

He brought up a historic double century by smashing Lockie Ferguson for three consecutive sixes in the final two overs of the innings. In doing so, he surpassed India icon Sachin Tendulkar’s 186-run total against New Zealand in an earlier ODI match in Nagpur, making it the highest score ever in the history of the game.
