Shubman Gill hit his sixth ODI century, becoming the first player this year to score 1000 runs in the 50-over format. In just 17 games this year, Gill has accomplished the feat.
On Friday, September 15, during the Super 4s match against Bangladesh, Shubman Gill scored his sixth ODI century for India.
With more than 1500 runs under his belt at an average of more than 49, Gill has had a fantastic year as the best run scorer across all game forms.
He became the youngest player to hit a double century in men's international cricket with an astounding 208 runs in one One Day International match, which was his greatest total. On January 18, 2023, against New Zealand, this accomplishment was achieved.

The 24-year-old kept calmly chipping away despite India losing Rohit Sharma and Tilak Varma early. Gill made the decision to keep going after losing partners at the other end and sped up by striking a few sixes against Mehidy Hasan.
In the 37th over, Gill would then surpass the 1000-run milestone. Gill has amassed more than 1000 runs in the 17 one-day international games he has played so far this year, with an average over 71 and a strike rate above 100.
After this, the teenager wouldn't need much more time to reach his fifth ODI hundred since Gill did it in 117 balls. Gill hit six fours and four sixes in his inning.
Just as Shubman Gill started to hit balls, he was departed by Mahedi Hasan in the 44th over. Shardul Thakur walks in. India are at 210/7 in 44 overs.
