When Virat Kohli, then-captain, India’s first saw Shubman Gill at the practice nets, he said that Gill was much more gifted than he was at that age. The time Gill was 19 years old. That was a big issue for Kohli to remark on since he was already seen as a potential star. He debuted in an ODI at the age of 19. However, it was clear what Kohli meant. After four years, Gill has established himself as India’s best batsman who can bat in all formats. He has a double-century in ODI play. Has hundreds in each of the game’s three forms and, at the age of 23, has one of the most exceptional average and strike rate combos ever recorded in ODI cricket.

By scoring his first T20I century in the decisive third T20I match against New Zealand in Ahmedabad, Gill smashed records for pleasure. He finished with an unbeaten 126 off 63 balls to help India reach a massive 234 for 4, which was much too much for the visitors, who collapsed for 66 in only 12.1 overs as India won the series again at home.

Here is a list of the data. Shubman Gill made a splash with his brilliant century against New Zealand in the third T20I.

– Gill overtook Suresh Raina, who had previously held the record at 23 years and 156 days, to become the youngest Indian to register a T20I century. Ahmed Shahzad of Pakistan now holds the record by scoring his first T20I century at the age of 22 years and 127 days.

– The highest T20I score by an Indian is 126* by Gill. Virat Kohli’s 122 against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup last year stood as the previous record.

– Gill’s 126* surpasses South Africa opener Richard Levi’s 117 from 2012 to become the highest score by any batter against New Zealand in T20Is.

– Gill achieved centuries in all genres at the earliest age among Indians. He joins Raina, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul as the fifth Indian to accomplish the feat.

India trounced New Zealand by a whopping 168 runs to win the series, shattering several records in the process. This is both the largest win margin in T20Is between two full-member teams and the largest victory margin for India overall. India and Pakistan jointly owned the previous record.

– New Zealand was knocked out for 66 against India. India has never bowled out an opponent for less than this total in the shortest format.

– India’s 234/4 score against New Zealand was their best in T20Is.

– India’s streak of unbeaten home T20I matches now stands at 13. They’ve triumphed in 11 of them.

– India’s fast bowlers took all 10 wickets against New Zealand; this was only the second time in the country’s history that this had happened. For the first time in India, India’s fast bowlers have claimed all 10 wickets.

– This was also the first time New Zealand lost all 10 wickets against pace in a T20I match.
