Shubman Gill centuries in cricket – Test, ODI, T20, IPL

Shubman Gill is one of the brightest stars in world cricket and has taken his game to the next level in recent times. Shubman Gill has been racking up centuries across formats in recent months, living up to his reputation as a generational talent.

Ever since his Under-19 days, Gill was touted as the next-generation superstar. It took him a while, whether not getting enough chances at the top level or due to weaknesses in his own game but the prince has finally arrived.

He lit up the Indian Premier League recently, producing one of the best individual seasons ever. Gill smashed 890 runs in the IPL 2023 at an average of 59 while striking at 157, and he blasted three centuries in it. 

Talking about international cricket, Shubman Gill has nine centuries across three formats. He made his debut back in January 2019 but has played 64 games for India. He registered his maiden international century in August 2022 and went on to score eight more in the next 14 months.

Let's take a look at Shubman Gill's centuries in international cricket.

Shubman Gill centuries in Tests 

The 24-year-old batter has hit two centuries in Test cricket. Gill's first Test century came against Bangladesh at Chattogram. India were in a comfortable position with a lead of 254 in the first innings. Shubman Gill scored a superb 110 with the help of 10 fours and three sixes as India gave the hosts a target of 513 and won the match by 188 runs. 

The second Test century by Shubman Gill was in the Border Gavaskar Trophy against Australia in March this year. With the series scoreline reading 2-1 in India's favour, Australia piled on 480 runs in the first innings of the Ahmedabad Test. India needed to give a strong response and Shubman Gill stepped up, scoring 128 in 235 balls. Virat Kohli also hit a hundred in this innings as the match ended in a draw. 

Shubman Gill centuries in ODIs

Shubman Gill has six ODIs centuries in 35 innings in his short career so far. He made his first century in the fifty-over format three and a half years after his international debut.

It was a Zimbabwe tour where most of India's senior players were rested. After scoring 82 and 33 in the first two matches, Shubman hammered 130 in 97 deliveries at Harare. 

Gill registered his second ODI century versus Sri Lanka when they toured India in January. The hosts had secured the series with a 2-0 lead heading into the third match at Thiruvananthapuram. Shubman struck 116 off 97 balls with 14 fours and two sixes. This was also the first time Gill and Kohli were batting together at their fluent best.

On January 18, Gill created history becoming the youngest player to score a double century in ODIs. In the first ODI of the series against New Zealand, Shubman Gill treated the Hyderabad crowd with a sensational display of ball-striking. He blasted 208 runs in 149 balls, in which he smashed nine sixes and 19 fours. 

Six days after scoring a double ton, Shubman Gill scored another ODI century in the third match of the series versus New Zealand at Indore. Batting first, he put on a double hundred opening partnership with Rohit Sharma. Gill struck 13 fours and five hundreds in his knock of 112 in just 78 deliveries. India posted 385 and won by 90 runs to clean-sweep the Kiwis. 

Gill also managed to score two more hundreds in the space of four innings in September. He made his fifth ODI ton in the Asia Cup, making a fine 121 in the eventual defeat to Bangladesh, and carried on his form in the Indore ODI against Australia, notching up 104.

Has Shubman Gill scored a century in T20Is?

Shubman Gill has smashed one century in T20I cricket, which came against New Zealand in February 2023. By this time Gill had delivered big performances in the other two formats but his T20 game was still unconvincing. 

Shubman Gill smashed the Black Caps' bowling attack to all parts of the Ahmedabad stadium. He struck seven sixes and 12 fours in his innings of 126 not-out in 63 balls. It was also the highest T20I score by an Indian batter. 

Shubman Gill centuries in IPL

The Gujarat Titans opener has three centuries in the IPL, and he scored those in four innings at the back end of the 2023 season. Shubman Gill hammered 101 off 58 balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad at Ahmedabad to bring up his maiden IPL hundred.

Gill then hammered an unbeaten 104 off 52 against Royal Challengers Bangalore, in a match where Kohli also scored a hundred earlier. Shubman Gill's third IPL century came in the Qualifier 2 to help the Titans knock out the five-time champions Mumbai Indians. He blasted 129 off just 60 balls with 10 sixes and seven fours.
