Gill surpassed Sachin Tendulkar on Monday, scoring the highest individual score by an Indian against Zimbabwe in ODIs. The stylish right-hander from Punjab had a stay on the crease that oozed grace and class. He scored 130 runs in just 97 balls with 15 fours and one six.
Sachin Tendulkar had scored 127* in 1998 in the first ODI of three-match series.
Gill has had an outstanding 2022 in ODIs so far. He has featured in six ODIs this year and has scored 450 runs at an average of 112.50. The batter has scored one hundred and three half-centuries this year, with a best of 130.
This is how you grab the opportunity! Good to see Shubman get that maiden International hundred. Well played… https://t.co/J4trMSWMRh
