Sehwag: Unhappy with Gill for not converting century into marathon innings

Shubman Gill has been nothing short of sensational during the ODI series against Australia. The teenage cricketer rebounded forcefully at the Holkar Stadium in Indore after just missing out on a century in the first game in Mohali. With his sixth ODI century, the flamboyant batsman displayed his skill and cemented his place in history on a batting-friendly surface with relatively short boundaries. But not everyone seems to be satisfied with his century. Virender Sehwag, a former cricketing great from India, stated his wish to see more from the gifted Punjab batter.

Sehwag, who is known for his aggressive batting style and playing marathon knocks, was somewhat unsatisfied with the result since he thought Gill might have scored even more runs. He emphasised that For young players in their prime, scoring huge runs is relatively simpler because their bodies can recover rapidly and still allow them to contribute on the pitch. The former India opener emphasised the need of making the most of one’s physical condition because ageing can make it difficult to continue performing at such high levels.

Gill is about to break a number of records.

In the realm of cricket, 2023 has unquestionably belonged to Shubman Gill. He has been a resounding force in one-day internationals, scoring more over 1200 runs this year, putting him the format’s top run-scorer. The astounding accomplishment of securing five centuries—four of them on home soil—has enhanced the 24-year-old’s performance. This accomplishment currently ties him for the most century by a batsman at home in a calendar year with cricket greats Ricky Ponting and Pakistan’s Zaheer Abbas.

Additionally, the Punjab batsman is getting ever-closer to breaking the legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most runs scored in a calendar year of 50 overs. The cricketing community is eagerly anticipating Gill’s ability to reach this significant milestone as the forthcoming ODI World Cup 2023 approaches, as he continues to impress with his incredible talent and excellent form on the pitch.
