The 23-year-old India National Cricket Team opening batsman Shubman Gill slammed his maiden Test century in the first Test of the two-match series against Bangladesh National Cricket Team at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Friday, December 16.

In the first innings, Gill had scored just 20 runs after getting off to a good start. However, in the second innings, he utilised every bit of the start and converted it into a remarkable century. He scored 110 runs off 152 balls, including 10 fours and 3 sixes, before being cleaned up by Mehidy Hasan Miraz in the 50th over.

Speaking after Day 3, Shubman Gill said that his maiden Test ton was a long time coming. The Punjab-born batter said:

“I personally thought it (maiden Test century) was long time coming for me. Today it was all about getting the difficult situation out of the way. There weren’t any different thoughts (while batting in the 90s).”

Shubman Gill further talked about his innings and said that it was all about playing according to the field and the situation. He stated:

“For me, it was about how to play according to the field and then be able to score runs. It was very instinctive (to hit a couple of boundaries and get to the milestone). 

“When the bowler came round the wicket, there was gap between third man and point. I hadn’t played it the whole innings. And once the field came in, I went over the fielders. When lunch happened, I was batting around 13. When I’d faced 100 balls, I was 70-odd, it’s about pacing the innings. You got to know when to attack as a batter.”

Speaking about his first Test ton, Gill said that the century means a lot to him, his family, and his friends. He said:

“(The century) Means a lot to me, my family, and my friends who have supported me. Special moment for any player – getting the maiden century here means a lot to me.”
