23 runs in one over
After Rohit formed a strong partnership with Virat Kohli. Earlier, after winning the toss, Rohit and Shubman started taking news of the bowlers from the sixth over. Fast bowler Lahiru Kumara was given 23 runs including one six and four fours. Hitman Rohit Sharma hit a six on the first ball and then took a single and gave the strike to Shubman Gill. Shubman grabbed this opportunity with both hands. Hit four fours in four consecutive balls. Ruthless, handsome and stylish… these are the 3 words that come to my mind seeing Shubman hitting shots.
small career big bang
Shubman now has 2 centuries and 5 half-centuries in his short career of 18 ODIs. Shubman Gill had a slow start in today’s match. He could not even open the account on the first 10 balls, but told with a four on the 11th ball that today is his day. Gill, who started his Test career from Australia tour, has played 13 Tests. He got his T20 International debut only last month, when he got the cap in Mumbai on the same tour of Sri Lanka.
One century, one half-century in the series
In the first ODI played in Guwahati, Shubman Gill played a blistering inning of 70 runs in 60 balls. Even though only 21 runs came from his bat in the second match played at Eden Gardens, he had made a big record in his name. Shubman became the highest run-scorer for India in the first 17 ODI innings of his career, breaking Virat Kohli’s record.
