Virat Kohli Impressed As Shubman Gill Breaks His Record

With several current and former cricketers questioning his place in India’s T20I, Shubman Gill silenced his critics with an unbeaten 126-run knock in the third and final T20I of the series against New Zealand. Gill, who became only the fifth batter to score a century in all three formats for India, broke Virat Kohli‘s record to become India’s highest scorer in an inning in T20Is.

Gill announced himself as an all-format player and helped India crush New Zealand by 168 runs in a series-clinching victory.


Riding on Gill’s ton, India posted a total of 234/4 after they elected to bat first in the decider at the world’s biggest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad.

Indian bowlers skittled out the Kiwis for a paltry 66 in 12.1 overs for a 2-1 series win. The hosts had whitewashed the Kiwis in three one-day matches.

The huge victory was India’s biggest ever in T20 internationals and the biggest margin by runs in a match played between two Test-playing nations.

Notably, Gill had scored just 76 runs in his previous five T20s since making his debut last month against Sri Lanka.
