In 2023, Shubman Gill maintained his winning streak and crushed the fifth century of the year. After falling short of a significant total in Indore, Gill proved why he belonged in the starting lineup from the first game of the series and became only the second Indian to achieve the three-figure mark in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023.

Shubman Gill became one of a select group of batsmen to make a century in every format in a calendar year when he hit Nathan Lyon for a boundary to finish his century. The child is only the tenth player to join this list. Three other Indian players have also reached this exceptional feat.

Shubman Gill Joins Suresh Raina And KL Rahul In Elite List

The first batsman to set this record was Suresh Raina in 2010, who recorded a century on his Test debut. KL Rahul joined Raina on this list in 2016. When Rahul made his white-ball appearances two years after his Test debut, it was in 2014. On his ODI debut against Zimbabwe, he hit a century.

Rahul and Raina were joined on the list by Rohit Sharma in 2017. To join this distinguished list, Gill achieved a century after six years in all forms. In 2023, the young player will have three ODI centuries, one T20I century, and one Test century. The double-century against New Zealand is among the three ODI tonnes.

When it comes to international athletes, this list also includes Mahela Jayawardene (2010), Tillakaratne Dilshan (2011), Ahmed Shehzad (2014), Tamim Iqbal (2016), David Warner (2019), and Babar Azam (2022). As there are so few players that consistently play all forms, it is challenging for them to set this uncommon record and join the select group.

Against Australia, Shubman Gill is batting well and wants to reach a double-century. He didn’t play in the first two Tests because India supported KL Rahul. Shubman Gill has since chosen a position and is prepared to obtain a lengthy rope.
