All eyes on Gill after swashbuckling century
Shubman Gill is expected to be the cynosure of all eyes today in the IPL final between Gujarat Titans and the Chennai Super Kings after he hammered as many as 10 sixes in a scintillating show of master class batting to score 129 from 60 balls for his team Gujarat Titans to beat Mumbai Indians and reach the final.
Gill made the Mumbai Indians pay when Tim David dropped him on 30 at mid-on as he propelled the Gujarat Titans who are the defending champs to reach a total of 233 for 3 in the 20 overs.
It marked Gill’s third century in four innings after which fast bowler Mohit Sharma grabbed five wickets to restrict the Mumbai Indians to a total of 171 that gave the Gujarat Titans a win by 62 runs.
Gill needed just 17 balls to move from 50 to a 100 as he smashed both the fast bowlers and spinners with ease to entertain a packed crowd.
