Shubman Gill Scores 104 in Second Innings against England

In his new job in Test cricket, Shubman Gill eventually achieved success. In the second Test against England in Visakhapatnam, the Indian prodigy—who was playing at number three—got his first fifty-plus score and turned it into a hundred.

Shubman Gill ends seven-year wait for century at No. 3 in India. 

Shubman Gill is the first batsman from India to get a century at the third rank since Chattogram’s Cheteshwar Pujara, who amassed 102 against Bangladesh. However, following Pujara’s 143 against Sri Lanka in Nagpur in 2017, Gill is the first player in India to make a century at the No. 3 batting.

“Shubman Gill’s Century in Visakhapatnam Increases Confidence Despite Dismiss Mishap”

Since 2017, he is the first Indian to score a century in a Test at number three in India. Since the West Indies tour, Gill has been batting third. Before this game in Visakhapatnam, he played five Test matches in the new role. His prior results in those Tests, however, were 6, 10, 29*, 2, 26, 36, 10, 23, 0, 34. He used to appear suddenly disconnected. But he would gain a lot from this inning in terms of recovering his confidence. But as the 24-year-old attempted to reverse-sweep the left-arm spinner, he had his gloves caught in the ball, which landed into wicket-keeper Ben Foakes’ hands, and he was dismissed for 104 by Tom Hartley.

Initially, when Joe Root was unable to accept a catch to his left at the slips, and then when England failed to convert an LBW judgement. Gill, however, uncovered his stride after a rocky start and collected 11 fours and 2 sixes in his stroke-filled innings. Gill reached his century on the 132nd ball.
