The year 2023 so far has belonged to Shubman Gill as he is piling up the runs across the three formats – Test, One-Day and Twenty20. Friday (May 26) was yet another day when Gill produced a masterclass in IPL 2023.
Gujarat Titans’ (GT) opener Gill smashed his third century of IPL 2023 to carry his team to the final. Thanks to his sublime 60-ball 129, GT won by 62 runs in Qualifier 2 against Mumbai Indians (MI) at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.

Friday’s three-figure mark was Gill’s eighth century across formats in 2023. He has already set a unique record of scoring Test, ODI, T20I and IPL hundreds in a calendar year, which had not been achieved by any batter previously.
The 23-year-old Gill’s run-scoring spree in 2023 began on January 15 when he hit 116 against Sri Lanka in a ODI in Thiruvananthapuram. Since then he has not looked back, and the cricket world is now singing his praises.
