Virat Kohli vs Shubman Gill records, runs, stats and total centuries list at 23
For those who aren’t sure, let us remind you, Kohli had scored a total of 122 runs against Afghanistan during the Asia Cup 2022. Now, Gill has broken Kohli’s record after scoring 126 runs.
Gill has started off his innings with some confident shots on the off-side against players like Michael Bracewell, Lockie Ferguson and Ben Lister.
Later, he timed his ball to perfection and it looked like he would set for a big score. Eventually he scored a big number in the ODI series against Sri Lanka and then New Zealand.
However, he has also struggled to replicate the numbers in T20I format against the same opponents. He ended his poor run in T20I cricket with a century earlier today.
While playing, Gill smashed 12 fours and 7 sixes. In the second over today, India lost Ishan Kishand’s wicket but Gill joined hands with Rahul to rebuild the innings.
The two stick together in a partnership of 80 runs in 7 overs. At the end, Tripathi lost his wicket to Sodhi but Gill remained not out.
After witnessing today’s Gill’s century the netizens are going gaga as they have flooded the social media platform Twitter with clips of matches.
Let us remind you as of now Gill has only played 40 international games but he has already recorded centuries in all three formats. Apart from him, only 3 other Indian cricketers had made hundreds in all three international formats.
