An opening batter, Shubham Gill scored the first Test Century in 147 deliveries, hitting eight fours and two sixes on his way.  His last best was 91, which he had scored against Australia in Brisbane in 2021. In his 21 innings before this match, Shubham Gill had four fifty-plus scores in Test cricket. In First Class cricket, this was Gill’s ninth 100-plus score.


Shubhman Gill's maiden Test ton, followed by Cheteshwar Pujara's 19th Test century has helped India set a 513-run target for Bangladesh in the third day of the first test at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium here. Pujara went on to score his half-century in 87 balls with the help of four boundaries.

The Gill-Pujara 113-run partnership ended after Gill was dismissed by Mehidy Hasan Miraz. Virat Kohli joined Pujara to help India go past the 200-run mark. Pujara and Virat Kohli batted aggressively and scored a fifty-run partnership of just 48 balls for the third wicket.

Pujara shifted gears and went on to score his 19th Test ton in just 130 balls. This was Saurashtra lad's first after January 2019.
