Shubman Gill launches three consecutive sixes to attain double hundred

Shubman Gill became the youngest batter to notch up an ODI double hundred in men’s cricket, laying the platform of India’s 12-run victory over New Zealand with his mesmerizing 149-ball 208 in a high-scoring thriller in Hyderabad. Michael Bracewell helped the Kiwis put up a stunning riposte in the 350-run chase but his career-best 140, and a record 162 partnership with Mitchell Santner from a shaky 131/6, wasn’t adequate enough to take the visitors over the line. On a track where the odd ball was holding and the spinners found a bit of turn, Gill made batting look easy with his authoritative pulls and delectable drives.
