Ahmedabad: A magnificent maiden T20I century by Shubman Gill has put India in a commanding position in the third and final T20I in Ahmedabad against New Zealand. Opting to bat, India lost Ishan Kishan early but Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi steadied the innings. Gill played second fiddle to Tripathi, who was out for a well-made 44. The batter took charge after Tripathi’s wicket and went bonkers, decimating the Kiwi attack on his way to a brilliant 54-ball century. India are 228/3 in 19 overs at the time of writing.
Meanwhile, Shubman Gill has been in remarkable form in recent times. In the recently concluded ODI series against New Zealand, he scored a blazing double ton in the first ODI and then backed it up with another century in the final game.
