Shubman Gill scored a century against India A

Kohli had captained North Zone in the final back in the 2009-10 season at the age of 21. Though it was a special occasion for the youngster, Gill could not contribute much with the bat in the summit clash against India B as he edged one straight to Yashasvi Jaiswal off Mohammed Siraj’s bowling in the second over.

Kohli’s statemate Unmukt Chand is third on the list as he led the team at the age of 22 when he led India B in the final of Deodhar Trophy in 2015. In 2009, Virat led his side to a comfortable victory as North Zone defeated West Zone to clinch the coveted trophy in 2009. Gill started the tournament with an impressive knock of 143 against India A on Friday but only managed to score a couple of runs in his next two outings in the domestic tournament.
