Shubman Gill, who was batting after scoring 79 runs in 65 balls against New Zealand in the World Cup semi-final, got injured, after which he walked out of the field and retired hurt.
After performing brilliantly in the World Cup, Team India has maintained the same momentum in the ongoing semi-final match against New Zealand at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Rohit Sharma, along with Shubman Gill, gave India another explosive start after winning the toss and coming to bat first. The pair added 71 runs in 8.2 overs before Rohit was out for 47(29) to Tim Southee.
Shubman Gill has retired from the field for treatment due to injury. He came to bat when Surya Kumar's wicket fell. It is expected that he will be seen batting in the final also.
If we look at Shubman Gill's innings, he was timing the ball well and was on his way to a century, which is his first century in the tournament. While in the middle order, he played innings in eight styles and three positions.
Shubman Gill came on the wicket of Suryakumar Yadav and added one run to his and India's total score. He scored 80 runs in 66 balls with the help of 8 fours and 3 sixes.
Virat Kohli's larger-than-life personality was further enhanced when he chose the big opportunity to score his historic 50th ODI century and take India to a mammoth score of 397 runs for four wickets. While India's two superstars thwarted the New Zealand attack in their own unique style, Shreyas Allerius also left Richard Sackett's team gasping in the big game.
Virat Kohli was at the peak of his ODI batting and was the centerpiece of India's dominance with his third century in this World Cup, scoring 117 runs off 113 balls with the help of nine fours and two sixes. He once again became the highest run-scorer in a single edition of the World Cup, surpassing the great Tendulkar (623 runs in 2003).
