“Next big thing in Indian cricket after Virat Kohli” – Twitter erupts as Shubman Gill scored his 3rd IPL ton

Gujarat Titans are playing against Mumbai Indians in the sixteenth edition of the IPL. The game is being staged at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Mumbai Indians won the toss and chose to bowl first.

Gujarat Titans largely benefitted from the services of youngster Shubman Gill as the latter scored a stellar century against Mumbai Indians. He chipped in with a magnificent ton in Qualifier 2 at the world’s largest cricket stadium.

Shubman Gill was looking so comfortable from the get-go and since then, he went about his business and scored runs with ease. As the game progressed, he accelerated the innings like a hot knife through butter.


Shubman Gill scored his third IPL century

The right-handed batsman continued his rich vein of form as he brought up his third IPL century in his last four games of this season’s IPL. The leading run-scorer of this season’s IPL took the game away from Mumbai Indians with his fearless batting approach.

Earlier in the game, both Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha added 54-run stand for the opening wicket before Piyush Chawla dismissed Saha for 18 runs. However, Shubman Gill went about his business and scored runs when it mattered the most.

He has already hit a flurry of 10 sixes and 7 fours and maintained a strike rate in excess of 200. He scored 129 off 60 balls. Earlier, Gujarat Titans lost to Chennai Super Kings in the first qualifier at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai.
