Shubman Gill, 22, eventually achieved his first ODI century on Monday, scoring 130 off 97 balls in India’s 13-run victory against Zimbabwe in the third and final ODI. Although Gill scored runs on both sides of the field, most of them were offsides as he showed his talent with a few dazzling cover drives.

Based on Gill’s outstanding performance, the team set a challenging 290-run goal for the hosts, who got dangerously near before Gill once again took center stage. India completed the match in 49.3 overs when the 22-year-old took a brilliant catch at long-on to finish Sikandar Raja’s tenacious effort. The batsman from Punjab, who played the shot in honor of his father, was also awarded Player of the Match and Player of the Series for his performance. He also shared that his father was not at all impressed with his performance in the second ODI, where he was dismissed on 33 off 34 balls.

“My main coach has always been my father. Before yesterday, when I was away for 33, I completed some schoolwork. Thus, this one is for my father “During the gift ceremony, he remarked. The child also offered an intriguing evaluation of his bat. The bat was decent, which is why he replaced it after hitting fifty since he wanted to keep it.

India won the series 3-0 as a result, continuing their incredible run in the limited-overs format. The Asia Cup in the UAE, which begins on August 27, will now include the Men in Blue in play. India’s campaign against opponent Pakistan will begin on the 28th, and Rohit Sharma and other senior players will be back for the competition.
