IND vs SL 1st ODI: India have discovered a new gem in Shubman Gill. The Punjab-based batter is enjoying a dream run currently and has emerged as one of the most dependable openers for the Indian cricket team. This is Gill's consecutive second hundred and with every game, he is proving his worth in the national side. India are taking on New Zealand in this three-match One Day International (ODI) series and Gill has started it off in a pretty dominant fashion.

This is Gill's third ODI hundred. His first came against Zimbabwe in 2022 and his second came,e against Sri Lanka in the 3rd ODI that was played on January 15, 2022. Shubman in the past has been pretty vocal about repaying Rohit Sharma's faith and he is doing exactly that at the very moment. In the 1st ODI that is being played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Gill kept going at a steady rate and ended up scoring 100 off 88 deliveries.
