Shubman Gill made rapid strides in age group and domestic cricket with that, the Punjab born player has kept knocking the national team’s doors. He followed up a successful stint in the India Under-19 team with consistent performances in second string India squads in un-official tours.
All that was well backed by his mighty impressive numbers in Indian domestic cricket. As a result, Gill received his maiden call-up for the national team. He is set to be part of India’s limited-overs team on the New Zealand tour starting in late January.
Here we look all the major records and numbers Shubman Gill has created in his short career:
1 – Shubman is the only player to score over 1000 runs with an average of over 100 in any International format (Mens/Women/U19). The Indian batsman scored 1149 runs from 15 innings at an average of 104.46 in Youth ODI cricket. Sir Donald Bradman’s average of 99.94 in Men’s Test cricket is the next best among players with 1000+ runs in any format.
4 – He is one of the two players with four consecutive fifty-plus scores in the U19 World Cup. Gill scored 63, 90*, 86 and 102* respectively in first four innings of the U19 CWC in 2018. Bangladesh’s Mehidy Hasan Miraz is the other player to have such a streak that he recorded in the 2016 edition.
6 – Gill is the only player in Youth ODI history to have recorded six consecutive 50+ scores. He scored fifties in last two innings of the 2017 England tour and four in a row at the start of 2018 U19 CWC.
9 – Number of matches Gill needed to complete 1000 runs in first-class cricket; the joint fewest by any Indian. Gill has 990 runs at the end of his 8th first-class match. He fell ten runs short of becoming the first Indian to score 1000 FC runs in as few as eight matches.
13 – Number of innings Gill needed to complete 1000 runs in Youth ODI cricket; the fewest by any player. These are the joint 2nd fewest innings consumed by any player to score the first 1000 runs in any International format (Mens/Women/U19). In Men’s Test cricket, Herbert Sutcliffe and Sir Everton Weekes needed 12 innings while Sir Donald Bradman also took 13 innings to get 1000 runs.
18y 237d – At the age of 18 years and 237 days, Gill became the 4th youngest player to score a fifty in the IPL as he scored 57 for KKR against CSK. He is one of the five players till date to score an IPL fifty before turning 19 but the first to do so while batting at No.4 or lower.
19y 47d – At the age of 19 years and 47 days, Shubman became the 5th youngest player to score a century in the Deodhar Trophy. He scored an unbeaten 106 against India B to help India C qualify for the final.
102* – Gill is the only player to score a century in the India-Pakistan U19 CWC matches. He scored an unbeaten 102 in the 2018 U19 CWC semi-final. Only three players including Gill have scored a century in the history of U19 CWC against Pakistan.
268 – He scored 268 against Tamil Nadu at the age of 19 years and 97 days. He is the 2nd youngest player to score a first-class 200 for Punjab after Reetinder Singh Sodhi (17 years and 15 days in 1997/98). This is the highest individual score by any player at the PCA Stadium in Mohali.
Gill ended the 2nd day of the game on 199; only the 2nd Indian player in first-class history to remain unbeaten on 199 at stumps. Rahul Dravid also resumed his innings at 199 on the following day during the 2003 Adelaide Test against Australia.
