Shubman Gill Breaks Virat Kohli's Record

Gill played a fighting knock and ended up smashing a sensational century against the Black Caps

Indian opener Shubman Gill continued his stellar form in the 50-over format on Wednesday

laying the groundwork for a competitive total against the top-ranked New Zealand side in the series opener.

Team India faced the Black Caps in the first ODI of their three-match series at Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. 

India had just finished a devastating 5-0 thrashing of Sri Lanka in their previous assignment. 

An excellent performance by Gill set the tone for the game

the Indian team will be hoping to carry that momentum into the rest of the series.
