Shubman Gill plays for Glamorgan in County Championship Division 2.
Young Indian batter Shubman Gill hit his first 100 for Glamorgan on Tuesday against Sussex in their County Championship Division 2 game at Hove. Gill hit at 91 overnight and scored his eighth first-class century in 123 balls, showing his wide range of elegant shots all over the County Ground in Hove. In all, Gill broke 16 boundaries and two sixes in his 119-from-139-ball knockout before being sent off by off-spinner Jack Carson as he hollowed out to Sean Hunt.
Gill hit three hours and 23 minutes when he came out with Glamorgan’s first innings score and read 277/5 in the opening session of day two.
Gill first set up a 57-run tie with Glamorgan skipper David Lloyd (56). Under the spotlight on day one, Gill and Billy Root had little trouble adding 87 runs before the latter came out in the eighth left of the day.
The 23-year-old Indian CEO is in the form of his life, scoring a first international century — 130 — in an ODI against Zimbabwe last month.
Gill missed a century earlier this month by eight runs against Worcestershire.
