Young Titan Shubman Gill scored his maiden double ton, and smashed several records on his way to his impressive 208
When Shubman Gill first burst onto the scene, many believed he was destined for great things! On a sunny day at Hyderabad, the young Titan lived up to that by smashing a historic double century in the first One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand. By doing so, he walked into an elite club that features greats such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and his captain, Rohit Sharma and the young Ishan Kishan - who hit a double century just last month.
There was the typical grace and elegance you associate with Shubman during the epic 208. From the very first ball, the 23-year-old looked in good form, carrying on from where he left off at Thiruvananthapuram, where he scored his second ODI century. Shubman was in record breaking form, entertaining millions of cricket fans along the way.
