Shubman Gill smashes 5th ODI century, becomes first batter to complete 1000 runs in 2023 | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Shubman Gill continues to make his mark as an outstanding batsman as the rising India star exhibited a brilliant display of calm and composure by scoring a well deserved hundred in the Asia Cup Super Four match against Bangladesh in Colombo on Friday.
Gill’s fifth ODI century came under tremendous pressure as the chips were down for India in the 266 chase but the 24-year-old batter single-handedly kept his team on course with a stunning knock.

The right-handed opening batter achieved more accolades during his innings becoming the first player to score 1000 runs in ODIs in 2023. He is also the first batter with five plus international hundreds in 2023.
Gill perished in a bid to accelerate India’s chase as the asking rate kept on zooming. His innings ended at 121 when he was caught by Towhid Hridoy at long off off Mahedi Hasan.
Gill’s 133-ball knock was laced with 8 fours and 5 sixes.

The second-ranked ODI batter Gill also became the highest run-scorer in the Asia Cup, amassing 275 runs in five innings at an average of 68.75, including a couple of fifties and a hundred.
