The incredible stats behind Shubman Gill’s double hundred

India News

Hit For Six!

India’s Shubman Gill scored a sublime 208 for India in the opening One-Day International against New Zealand in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

We take a look at some of the incredible stats that have come out of Gill’s individual effort.

The 23-year-old’s phenomenal knock saw him write himself into the record books as the youngest player in the history of Men’s ODIs to score a double hundred.

Gill’s 208 is the joint-ninth highest individual score in a Men’s ODI.

And he becomes one of just eight players in history to have reached the milestone in the format.

Only India captain Rohit Sharma has reached a double hundred more than once in ODIs (doing so three times).

And of the eight players to have scored 200 or more in an ODI, five of them are Indian.

No Indian player has scored more runs in an ODI against New Zealand than Gill’s effort.

His 208 is Gill's highest score across all formats for India in his career, and his fourth century – three in ODIs and one in Tests.

Gill’s scoring accelerated throughout the innings, and he went from 150 to 200 in just 23 balls, passing the double-century point thanks to three consecutive sixes.

In the process of scoring 208, Gill also reached 1000 career ODI runs for India.

He has reached the career milestone in just 19 matches, fewer than any previous Indian to do so.

In the history of the game, only Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman reached 1000 runs in fewer matches (18).
