Shubman Gill, 23, broke Shikhar Dhawan’s and Virat Kohli’s previous records for the fastest Indian batsman to score 1000 ODI runs as he continued his stellar start to his ODI cricket career. He accomplished the mark more quickly than Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan, who both needed 24 innings to do it.

After hitting a century against Sri Lanka in the recently finished series, Gill recorded his third ODI century in Hyderabad, his second in a row.

On Wednesday, the 23-year-old produced some lovely shots after beginning out cautiously. He appeared to be in excellent shape. To provide the groundwork for India, the team’s opener and Rohit Sharma struck 60 runs for the first wicket.

Sharma was dismissed for 34 runs, while Virat Kohli too had a quiet day. Ishan Kishan also departed for just five runs on the day, as Gill continued to lose partners swiftly until finding some backup in Suryakumar Yadav.

The right-handed batsman reached his hundred in 87 deliveries, and at the time of the milestone, his innings had 14 boundaries and two sixes. When Gill hit a boundary off Blair Tickner in the 33rd over, he would eventually attain the milestone of 1000 runs.

With that, Gill also shared the record for the second-fastest hitter to 1000 runs with Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq. In 19 games, each batter accomplished the milestone.

Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman, who scored 1000 runs in in 18 games, is ranked No. 1. As they all achieved 1000 0DI runs in their 21st match, Sir Viv Richards, Kevin Pietersen, Quinton de Kock, Babar Azam, and Rassie van der Dussen were passed by Gill.
