Shubman Gill, the young Indian opener, made headlines Tuesday during the third and final ODI against West Indies in Trinidad. He broke a significant ODI record previously held by Imam-ul-Haq. Gill showcased his impeccable form by scoring a splendid 85 runs off just 92 balls in the match.

The 23-year-old Punjab-born cricketer’s innings helped India win the match but also propelled him to new heights in the ODI record books. With this performance, Gill became the highest-scoring batsman in ODI history at this stage of his career by reaching 1437 runs after 27 ODI innings.

Imam-ul-Haq, from Pakistan, previously held the record at 1381 runs in the same number of innings. Behind them is South Africa’s Rassie Van Der Dussen, with 1353 runs in 27 ODI games.

The partnership between Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan played a pivotal role in India’s performance. The duo made a formidable 143-run partnership, with Kishan contributing a crucial 77 off 64 balls. Their efforts enabled India to post an imposing total of 351/5 at the end of their 50 overs. India’s dominant batting display was followed by an equally impressive bowling performance, where they successfully defended their target, winning the series 2-1.

Gill was named the Man of the Match for his match-winning performance, a testament to his talent and potential.

Second record

Shubman Gill’s performance brought him close to another significant record, becoming the fastest Indian to score five ODI centuries. That title belongs to veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan, who achieved this feat in 28 innings. Gill missed out on the record by a mere 15 runs in the match against West Indies.

However, Gill still has a chance to equal Dhawan’s record and etch his name among the greats of Indian cricket. South Africa’s explosive wicketkeeper-batter, Quinton de Kock, holds the record for the fastest five ODI hundreds. De Kock achieved this in just 19 innings, setting a benchmark for other players. On the other hand, Imam-ul-Haq reached five ODI centuries in 25 innings, showcasing his batting prowess.

Gill’s consistency and remarkable performance have been awe-inspiring throughout his career. Even if he gets dismissed for a duck in his next ODI outing, his current record of most runs after 28 ODI innings will remain untouched.

Beyond the cricket field, Shubman Gill has become an inspiration for young aspiring cricketers in India and beyond. His journey from being a talented youngster in Punjab to representing the Indian cricket team at a young age is a story of perseverance, hard work, and determination.

Who is Shubman Gill?

Gill made his first-class debut for Punjab at a young age and soon caught the attention of cricket enthusiasts with his batting skills. His performances in domestic cricket, particularly in the Ranji Trophy, earned him accolades, and he was considered one of India’s brightest cricketing talents.

In January 2019, Shubman Gill made his ODI debut for India against New Zealand, and since then, he has been a regular part of India’s limited-overs squads. He has been touted as one of the future stars of Indian cricket.

Gill’s batting style is a delight to watch, characterized by exquisite stroke play, sound technique, and a calm demeanor at the crease. Despite his age, he has shown maturity beyond his years, earning praise from cricketing legends and experts.
