Shubman Gill becomes fastest to score 2000 ODI Runs

During the crucial ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 match against New Zealand, Indian young opener Shubman Gill broke the record for the fastest 2000 ODI runs.

Dharamsala is hosting the 21st match at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, where New Zealand set the 274 runs target for the hosts, majorly thanks to Daryl Mitchell’s 130 runs and Rachin Ravindra’s 75 runs.

Among the Indian bowlers, Mohammed Shami was a hero on his comeback with a fifer as he ended with the bowling figures of 10-0-54-5.

At chasing, Indian captain Rohit Sharma and his opening partner Shubman Gill provided a strong start with a 50+ partnership for the first wicket.
