Shubman Gill Slams Maiden IPL Ton, Now Centurion in All Formats!

Gujarat Titans opener Shubman Gill scored his maiden IPL hundred against SRH at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Gill completed his maiden ton off 56 deliveries and became the first batter to score a century for GT in the IPL. Bhuvneshwar Kumar dismissed opener Wriddhiman Saha for a three-ball duck. But he controlled one side and scored 101 off 58 deliveries before giving a wicket to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The right-handed batter was at his fluent best as he scored 13 fours and one six. His previous best was 96 against PBKS in IPL 2022.
