IND vs NZ 3rd ODI: India's opening batter Shubman Gill continued his Midas touch as he smashed his 4th ODI ton in the third match against New Zealand in Indore. The youngster Gill has hit his second hundred in the ODI series against New Zealand as he scored a record-breaking double hundred in the 1st ODI. 

Shubman Gill, who is preffered as the first choice opener alongside Rohit Sharma, gave yet another promising performance for the Indian team. After scoring 208 in the first ODI of the series, Gill scored a 72-ball hundred in the third ODI in Indore. Earlier, India's captain Rohit Sharma ended his century drought when he smashed a scintillating hundred against New Zealand in the third ODI of the series in Indore. Sharma sent the Kiwi bowlers around the park as he raised his bat after smashing a 30th ODI ton. 

Most runs in 3-match ODI series

Meanwhile, Gill's mouthwatering knocks have brought him on top of a big feat alongside Pakistan's modern maestro Babar Azam. Gill has also equalled the record of most runs in a three-match ODI series in the world. The Indian opener has amassed 360 runs in the ODI series against New Zealand, which is equal to Babar Azam's feat. Pakistan captain Azam hit 360 runs vs Zimbabwe in 2016. 

Fewest innings to 4 ODI tons for India

Meanwhile, Gill has also shattered the record for fewest ODI innings by an Indian to reach to four ODI tons. Gill's 4th century has come in 21 innings and he has gone past Shikhar Dhawan's feat. Dhawan scored 4 tons in 24 innings. All over, Gill is on 4th in this tally in the world. Pakistan's Imam-ul-Haq leads the tally with his first 4 centuries coming in 9 innings.
