IND vs AUS: Shubman Gill breaks massive record of Sachin Tendulkar in ODIs after his 104 against Australia in Mohali
IND vs AUS: In both games for India, Shubman Gill was the shining light. The opening batter started the series with a staggering half-century in Mohali. He scored a brisk 74 runs and helped India win the game to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
Shubman Gill’s best came in the second game in Indore as he batted magnificently and played another staggering knock. The opening batter continued his golden touch as he smashed his 6th ODI ton, 5th this year.
Shubman Gill looked cautious in the start but once he got his eye in he looked a class apart. The batter took attack to the opposition bowlers and smashed them all over the park. He made a mockery of the opposition bowlers and played some breathtaking shots.
Shubman Gill completed his ton in 92 balls and also smashed 6 fours and 4 sixes in his innings. With his ton, he surpassed Sachin Tendulkar to smash the most centuries in the 50-over format in a calendar year in India.
Shubman Gill so far has hit 4 tons this year whereas the batting great had registered 3 hundreds in 1996. With the way the batter is going, it’s fair to say that he can break many records in his career. Going into the World Cup, he’ll be one of the crucial players for India going into the ICC World Cup.
IND vs AUS: It feels good – Shubman Gill after his knock against Australia
IND vs AUS: After his knock, Shubman Gill talked about his mindset and how he approached his innings. He also opened up about his favourite shot in the innings. He explained:
“It feels good. Satisfied as a team, we have the momentum at the right time. It depends on the situation, there’s definitely some confidence. I can cover up later, and that confidence is because I am scoring at the moment. With the way KL and Surya played, they kept the momentum going. A target of 400 was going to be difficult on any surface, and the bowlers came out and did their job. I think the six against Green down the ground, it was really special for me.”
The last IND vs AUS ODI will be played on 27th September in Rajkot.
