Shubman Gill equals Babar Azam's world record
Gill also accumulated 360 runs, including 2 centuries against New Zealand in 2023.

There were some great performances in both the batting and bowling departments in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. 

Mohammed Kaif, in an exclusive interaction with Star Sports, spoke on the new opening combination of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill.

“I think both the batters got similarities because they like to play on the back foot. The way they play square of the wicket, they like to play pull shots and not so much footwork, but how they play square of the wicket, the fine leg, and through the cover points is fantastic,” he said. 

“Appealing to the eyes, both the batsmen have got elegance. Both batsmen can stay on the pitch batting for a longer time, so it is difficult to bowl against them because if you make even a small mistake, these guys will punish you,” he added. 

“The way Rohit Sharma has started as a captain, he’s trying to set that tone in the power play, stepping out and playing over point pulling the ball. I think he knows that if India wants to win the World Cup, he should be the aggressor in the power play.”
