Shubman Gill scored his fourth ODI century in the third match of the series against New Zealand on Tuesday, continuing his blistering form.

Gill is already the batter with the most runs scored in the three matches of the series, scoring 208 and 40 not out in the first two games.

Gill tied Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s record for scoring the most runs in a three-match ODI series when he reached 112 runs in the Indore match.

Babar only held the record for scoring the most runs (360) in a three-match ODI series before being beaten by the young India opener. Gill was run out for 112. He needed 113 runs to beat the Pakistan veteran’s mark.

From the opposing side of the field, India skipper Rohit Sharma gave Gill, the first batter, complete support. With his 30th hundred in the format, Rohit, who hadn’t scored a ODI century in three years, also crossed the three-figure mark.

However, Rohit was unable to continue his journey after that, so he left for 101.

Only two batters in the game’s history have scored more than 350 runs in a three-match ODI series, and Gill, who is 23 years old, is one of them.

Imrul Kayes (349), Quinton de Kock (342) of South Africa, and Martin Guptill (330) of New Zealand come in behind Gill on the list.
