Becomes the youngest ODI batter to reach 200 runs.

Wednesday’s ODI match between India and New Zealand included Shubman Gill’s unprecedented double century.

In the first ODI match between India and New Zealand on Wednesday in Hyderabad, Shubman Gill blasted his first double century off just 145 balls. He was the fifth Indian cricketer to to accomplish the record, and his innings was studded with eight enormous sixes and 19 extra-large boundaries. The accomplishment has previously been accomplished by Ishan Kishan, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, and Sachin Tendulkar. In addition, he broke Kishan’s record for the youngest cricketer to score a double century in one-day internationals.

For the young player, who looked entirely in control against the New Zealand bowlers, it was a nearly flawless performance. With Rohit, he put together a reliable 50-run partnership for the first wicket, and even when Rohit was gone, Gill continued to bat with little apparent difficulty on the even-bouncing surface.

Even after India lost two fast wickets in the shape of Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan, the right-hander kept playing his strokes. In addition to scoring his third ODI century, Gill surpassed Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli to become the Indian batsman to amass 1000 ODI runs most quickly.

Once he passed the 100-run threshold, scoring runs became simpler, and he proceeded to take on nearly all bowlers. He was able to reach 150 in 122 balls, and even though he kept losing partners on the other end, Gill made the decision to play aggressively, which was crucial in helping India surpass 300.

He hammered Lockie Ferguson for three consecutive sixes with two over left in the innings to set up a remarkable double century. In addition, he surpassed India icon Sachin Tendulkar’s knock of 186 in Nagpur to record the highest ODI score ever against New Zealand.
