Shubman Gill continued his imperious form with the bat and slammed his maiden T20I century on Wednesday to register his name in the record books. The talented young batter slammed unbeaten 126 runs to help India post a mammoth 234/4 in 20 overs against New Zealand in the third T20I at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.With his sensational knock, Shubman broke the record of Virat Kohli to post the highest score by an Indian in T20Is. Kohli hit unbeaten 122 runs against Afghanistan in Asia Cup 2022 which was also his maiden T20I century. However, it didn’t last very long as Shubman pipped him on Wednesday with a sublime 126-run* knockMeanwhile, 23-year-old Gill also became the fifth Indian batter to score centuries in all three formats after Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli. He also became the youngest Indian (23-year-old) to score a T20I century.Gill, who failed to score big in the first two T20Is, made up for those off outings and smacked 12 fours and 7 sixes during his ferocious knock. He reached his century with a cracking boundary over cover and then roared loudly to celebrate the special feat.He lost his opening partner Ishan Kishan early in the second over but the 23-year-old joined hands with Rahul Tripathi to recover India from that blow. The former Kolkata Knight Riders duo shared an 80-run stand for the second wicket to set the platform for India to post a big total. Tripathi scored a quickfire 44 off 22 balls to put pressure on the Kiwi bowlers.
