IND vs ZIM: Shubman Gill applauded by ex cricketers Irfan Pathan and Yuvraj Singh on his maiden century in ODI cricket

IND vs ZIM: Formar Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan and Yuvraj Singh congratulated Shubhman Gill on his first ODI century on Monday.

The southpaw sent his best wishes to the young batsman who, in the current ODI series against Zimbabwe, blasted an impressive first century.

Irfan said in his tweet, “First of many for this youngster @ShubmanGill, well done”

The former India all-rounder hoped that Gill will score numerous hundreds.

“Finally!!! Well played @ShubmanGill u seriously deserved that Ton! Congratulations on your first many more to come this is just a start #indiavszim,” tweeted Yuvraj Singh.

The Indian batter also set a record for the best score by an Indian player versus Zimbabwe. Gill scored 130 runs off of 97 balls, including 15 boundaries and a huge six.

The previous record was held by Sachin Tendulkar, who in 1998 in Bulawayo struck an unbroken 127 against them.

KL Rahul, the captain of India, earlier chose to bat after winning the toss. The squad scored 289 runs overall for the loss of eight wickets, helped by the centuries of Shubhman Gill and Ishan Kishan.
