Shubman Gill smashed Australia’s maze with a powerful century in the Ahmedabad Test. This is his second century in Test cricket. Not only this, but this is his second century in 39 days at this ground in Ahmedabad. Last month, he scored a century against New Zealand in the T20I at the same ground. Australia created a maze to break the pair of Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara in Ahmedabad. Both were trapped by Australia for a long time.
Steve Smith fielded in such a way that it was difficult for India to hit a single boundary. Gill went from 73 to 80 with the help of a single run. As he reached 80, his approach changed and he hit 2 consecutive fours off the second and third ball of Green’s six. After 96 balls, the first four went from India.
Gill reached 88 runs with 2 fours. After this, Pujara also appeared in a bit aggressive mood. Gill hit Nathan Lyon’s head for a boundary in the 61st over to reach 96 runs. Gill also completed his century with a four. In the 62nd over, Gill hit a powerful shot to short fine off Murphy’s second ball.
Lion dived to cover this powerful shot, but the ball missed the mark. With this he completed his century in 194 balls. Virat Kohli also celebrated his century. Meanwhile, Gill hit 10 fours and 1 six. Shubman Gill has become the fourth Indian to score centuries in all three formats in the same year. Before him, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina and KL Rahul have done this feat.
