The young Indian opener, Shubman Gill surpassed his second Test century in style during the fourth and final match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. He scored the ton with the help of 10 fours and a six in the ongoing Ahmedabad Test. There had been increasing pressure on the young opener to deliver with the bat after his failure in the previous Test of the series, where he registered scores of 21 and 5 across both innings.

The 23-year-old opener adopted an aggressive approach early into the innings, she kept on attacking the bowlers like Nathan Lyon as he smashed the veteran spinner for a six-over long-on in the final over of Day 2. Interestingly, Gill was dismissed attempting a similar shot in the second innings of the previous Test in Indore; and so, to go for it again early into his innings in Ahmedabad was a statement of intent from the youngster.

Shubman Gill carried the momentum in the first session of Day 3 and even as Rohit (35) was dismissed early, Gill carried on with his aggressive stroke-playing against the Aussie batters. He had reached his fifty in 89 deliveries and it was then, when Gill, alongside Pujara, aimed at building a partnership and bid their time at the crease. Right before the tea session, Shubman Gill managed to surpass the three-figure mark.
