As IND vs BAN is just around the corner, young India batter Shubman Gill is on the verge of scripting history. The opening batter is just a few runs away from becoming the fastest ever to score 2000 runs in the history of the ODIs. 

If Shubman Gill scores 67 runs in the next three innings, he will achieve the history. The batter currently has  1933 runs in 36 games so far. He has a staggering average and strike of 64.43 and 103.09. Apart from this, he has 6 centuries and 9 fifties to go with the highest score of 208.

With the kind of form he’s in, it’s fair to say that Shubman Gill can achieve the feat in the upcoming IND vs BAN game. The young batter missed the first two games of the tournament for India because he was tested positive for dengue.

Gill returned to the Indian XI for the IND vs PAK game. Although he managed just 16 runs but it didn’t look like he was out of action. He timed the ball sweetly and made many go gaga. He would be hoping to turn the tides in the IND vs BAN and assert his authority again.

Shubman Gill is currently the leading run-getter in the ODIs this year. He has piled up truckloads of runs. The batter is also on the verge of breaking Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most runs in the calendar year. Gill so far has 1246 runs at an average of around 70.
