Team India's Young Player Breaks Sachin's Record For The Highest Score!
Shubman Gill, Team India's young player, scored his maiden ODI century. Gill scored a brilliant century in the 3rd ODI against Zimbabwe in Harare. Gill scored 130 runs off 97 balls in this match. Gill has thus achieved a rare feat.
Shubman became the Indian player who scored the highest individual score against Zimbabwe in ODIs. Until now, Sachin Tendulkar, the legend of Team India, held this record.
In 1998, Sachin was unbeaten by scoring 127 runs in the ODI against Zimbabwe. Gill, who scored 130 runs in the latest match, broke Sachin's 24-year-old record.
When it comes to the match, Team India, who batted first, scored 289 runs for the loss of eight wickets in 50 overs. Among the Indian batsmen, Gill (130 runs) excelled with a century, while Ishan Kishan scored 50 and Dhawan 40.
Among the Zimbabwean bowlers, Brad Evans took five wickets. Nyuchi and Jongwe got a wicket each. After that, Zimbabwe, which came to bat with a target of 290 runs, could not achieve it.
These are the Indian players who scored the highest individual score in ODIs against Zimbabwe.
