Shubman Gill joins the T20I’s elite club after a blazing ton against New Zealand

[ad_1]

In the third and final T20 Internationals (T20I) against New Zealand on Wednesday, India opener Shubman Gill guided his team to a series-clinching victory and etched his name into the record books. He scored a storming 126 off 63 deliveries and became the youngest player to score a century in T20Is.

During his exploits, Gill smashed 19 gigantic boundaries comprising seven sixes. The 23-year-old also surpassed Virat Kohli’s highest individual score for India in the shortest format. Notably, in last year’s Asia Cup, Kohli played a 122-run knock against Afghanistan. Gill’s ton also put him in the rare list of all three format centurions as he became the 21st cricketer across the world to achieve the feat.

Just a few weeks ago, Gill scored his maiden One Day International (ODI) double ton against the Blackcaps. Now, after this recent record-breaking inning, the Punjab batter joined the elite club of T20I centurions with the likes of Brendon Mccullum, Glenn Maxwell, Rohit Sharma and many others.

On that note, let’s look at the list of some major T20I century hitters.
