Shubman Gill scored his maiden T20 century in the first quarter-finals of the 2022 Syed Mushtaq Ali played at iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata on November 1.

Karnataka captain Mayank Agarwal won the toss and decided to field first. Young batting prodigy Gill played a brilliant inning opening the innings, scoring 126 off 55 balls helping Punjab post a massive total of 225 for 4.

 

Gill took a few balls to settle initially before putting pressure on Karnataka bowlers. He smashed 50 off just 30 deliveries and made the batting look easy. After completing his fifty, the explosive opener decimated the Karanakta bowling lineup with aggressive shots reaching his century off 49 balls.

He continued his aggressive style of batting before eventually being dismissed for 126 with 11 fours and 9 sixes to help Punjab post a massive total. Anmolpreet Singh also scored 59 off 43 balls, while Sanvir Singh’s quickfire knock made life tough for the Karankata bowlers. Kaverappa was the pick of the bowlers for Karanakta with 3 for 44.

Fans were delighted with the Punjab batter’s impressive knock on Tuesday and showered praise on him on social media platforms.

 

Karnataka struggled initially losing early wickets, but they kept on fighting as Abhinav Manohar‘s unbeaten 62 off 29 balls, Manish Pandey’s 45 off 29 balls, Krishnappa Gowtham’s 30*, and Manoj Bhandage’s quickfire knock could not assure as Punjab won the match by just 9 runs.

Shubman Gill named in India’s T20 squad for the New Zealand series

Shubman Gill has been named in the squad for the three-match T20I and ODI series on the tour of New Zealand, starting on November 18. Gill made it into the T20I squad for the New Zealand tour first time. He would be looking to make an impact and make a case for himself.

Gill would be looking to continue his superb form in the semi-finals and finals if Punjab qualify. The explosive right-handed batter has been in sensational form in the ODI format since his debut. He played a key role in Gujarat Titans‘ victorious run during IPL 2022 opening the innings.
