Umran celebrated with a bang
Indian team’s fast bowler Umran Malik is not a part of the playing eleven of this match. Shardul Thakur has got a chance in his place. Gill completed his double century by hitting a six off Lockie Ferguson. After the completion of his double century, all the Indian players were standing in the dugout and clapping. But Umran Malik was jumping and swinging. His video is becoming increasingly viral.
Completed one thousand runs in ODIs
During this innings Shubman Gill became the fastest Indian to score 1000 ODI runs. Gill, 23, completed 1000 runs in his 19th ODI innings by scoring 106 runs. After scoring 116 runs in 97 balls against Sri Lanka in the third ODI at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram, he scored his second century today. The right-handed batsman surpassed Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan, who jointly held the previous record as the fastest Indian in 24 innings and joint second fastest to 1000 runs in ODIs.
He equaled Pakistan opener Iman-ul-Haq to cross 1000 runs in 19 innings while missing out on another Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman’s record of fastest to 1000 runs in 18 innings. Gill’s third ODI century came off just 87 balls in 19 innings, and among Indian cricketers, only Shikhar Dhawan (17) had reached his third century in 50 overs cricket in fewer innings.
