132

Shubman Gill's bat played well on the last day of the last Test in Brisbane between India and Australia. The 21-year-old young opener once again played a brilliant inning here. Gill also achieved many achievements during his innings. He now became India's youngest opener scoring a half-century in the fourth innings of Test cricket for India.


Earlier this record was in the name of the great Sunil Gavaskar. Little Master scored his unbeaten 67 at the Port of Spain against the West Indies in 1970–71, his debut test. Now Gill did this feat in his third Test at the age of 21, 133 days.


Gill became the youngest player to be dismissed in a nervous ninth in a Test match in Australia. Apart from this, he is also now the youngest Indian to score a half-century in the fourth innings of a Test match in Australia, in this case, he surpassed Dilip Vengsarkar.


Let us know that Gill, who was dismissed for just seven runs in the first innings, beat the Australian bowlers in the second innings. Shubman may have missed his first Test century, but before he was dismissed, he scored 91 runs in 146 balls. The young right-hander hit eight fours and two sixes during his innings. During this, he scored 20 runs in two overs with a four and a six in Mitchell Starc's over. He also played a crucial partnership of 114 runs for the second wicket with Cheteshwar Pujara.

Gill also completed 200 runs at an average of over 50 in his debut test series. Talk about his performance in the series, Gill played 45 and 35 * innings in the Melbourne Test. After this, he scored 50 and 31 in the Sydney Test and now missed the century by just nine runs as soon as he scored seven and 91 runs in Brisbane.
