Shubman Gill is proving himself as India’s future legendary opener. The fourth and final match of the Border Gavaskar Test series is currently being played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. After Australia put up a big score in the first innings, the Indian team is looking to reply. On Saturday (March 11), Indian opener Shubman Gill completed his own century and also registered a special record.
Shubman Gill has scored a total of 5 international centuries since the start of 2023. No other batsman in international cricket has been able to match Gill in terms of centuries in the last three months. Not only this, Gill alone has scored 5 centuries this year, on the other hand, all other Indian batsmen have scored a total of 5 centuries this year. From these statistics, it seems that Gill is not only the Indian team, but the most in-form batsman in the world right now.
When it comes to the most international centuries scored this year, Shubman Gill is the top with 5 centuries. New Zealand’s Devon Conway is second with three centuries. Virat Kohli has scored 2 centuries this year and is third in this list. The fourth Indian captain is Rohit Sharma, who has scored two centuries. Usman Khawaja is at number five, followed by Temba Bauma, Jason Roy and David Malan. The last three have also lost two wickets each since the start of 2023.
