South African batting legend AB de Villiers also expressed his admiration for Gill’s knock and was left speechless by the Punjab batter.  “SHUBMAN GILL! Wow. I don’t really have words,” tweeted de Villers.  “His ability to identify moments and accelerate, with consistency, puts him in a class of his own. Also keep in mind, most of his games have been at Ahmedabad, one of the bigger grounds around. Well played Shubman,” added de Villiers in another tweet.

Shubman Gill’s 2023 > Virat Kohli’s 2016: Twitter Reacts As Gujarat Titans’ Opener Hit’s 3rd Century Of IPL 2023 | Cricket News

Throughout the 16 editions of the Indian Premier League (IPL), numerous world-class batsmen have dominated the rankings with their exceptional performances. These outstanding batters have displayed remarkable streaks of scoring runs, single-handedly leading their respective teams to glory. During the IPL 2016 season, former Indian and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli achieved the highest individual aggregate by any batter. Kohli amassed a mind-boggling total of 973 runs from 16 matches, including four centuries and seven fifties. Despite his exceptional performance, RCB finished as the runner-up.

England’s white-ball captain, Jos Buttler, secured the second spot on the list after his sensational display during the IPL 2022 season for the Rajasthan Royals. Buttler scored four centuries en route to accumulating 863 runs. Following closely, David Warner ranks third with 848 runs from the 2016 season. Warner’s outstanding performance led the Sunrisers Hyderabad to their maiden title victory against RCB.

In the IPL 2023 season, Shubman Gill, the opener for the Gujarat Titans, became the second Indian and fourth overall batsman to surpass the 800-run milestone. He achieved this feat during the Qualifier 2 match against the Mumbai Indians. Additionally, Gill recorded his third century of the season, joining Kohli as the second Indian player to achieve three or more centuries in a single IPL season.

Jasprit Bumrah Makes Surprise Appearance At Narendra Modi Stadium To Cheer For Mumbai Indians Amidst Injury Recovery

Jasprit Bumrah, the star Indian pacer, made a surprise appearance at the Narendra Modi Stadium to cheer for his Mumbai Indians teammates in their match against the Gujarat Titans. Bumrah is currently out of action after undergoing back surgery, and his absence has been felt by Mumbai Indians throughout the IPL 2023 season.

Despite being unable to take to the field, Bumrah made his presence known by posing for a picture shared by Mumbai Indians on their official social media handle. The caption read “BOOM BOOM… BUMRAH  #OneFamily #GTvMI #MumbaiMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #IPL2023 #TATAIPL @Jaspritbumrah93”.

Bumrah has had a rough few months, having missed several series due to a stress fracture in his back. He underwent surgery in New Zealand and is currently in India, where he is undergoing rehabilitation and recovery before returning to the field.

Unfortunately, Bumrah is also not a part of the Indian squad for the upcoming World Test Championship Finals against Australia. He is expected to take another 5-6 months to fully recover and make his way back into the squad. The big question remains whether Bumrah will be fit in time for the upcoming Asia Cup and the highly anticipated ICC World Cup 2023.

Mumbai Indians and their fans were thrilled to see Bumrah supporting the team from the stands, even if he couldn’t contribute on the field. While his absence has been a major blow to the team’s campaign, the defending champions will be eager to get back to winning ways and secure a playoff spot in the IPL 2023 season.

Sunil Gavaskar Wants THIS Indian To Replace David Warner As Captain Of Delhi Capitals

Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar recently made a big remark by naming Indian all-rounder Axar Patel as the ideal contender for the captaincy of the Delhi Capitals, one of the franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Currently, the Australian batsman David Warner leads the side in IPL 2023, but many cricket pundits have criticized his leadership skills, especially since the team has lost the first five matches of the tournament. In contrast, Axar Patel has been performing consistently well, both as a bowler and a batsman, and has shown great leadership qualities in his role as the vice-captain of the Delhi Capitals.

Axar Patel’s recent performances have been outstanding. In the Delhi Capitals’ last game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 24, he scored 34 runs and took two wickets, conceding only 21 runs in his four-over spell. His overall strike rate in IPL 2023 has been an impressive 135, while David Warner’s strike rate is at 119, despite having played seven games and scored 306 runs for the Delhi Capitals. Sunil Gavaskar believes that Axar Patel’s honesty, good rhythm, and excellent form make him the ideal candidate to lead the Delhi Capitals. He also believes that the Indian team can benefit from Axar’s leadership skills, and he should be given a chance to perform in the long run.

Sunil Gavaskar said on Star Sports Cricket Live, “I believe Axar Patel should be appointed the captain of Delhi Capitals. He is an honest player. He’s in a good rhythm. The Indian team can benefit from him being named the captain of the franchise and performing well. All these things should be done in a long run.”

Axar Patel has been in stupendous form in international cricket, especially in the Border-Gavaskar trophy against Australia, where he scored 264 runs and became the second-highest run-scorer in the four-match Test series after Virat Kohli. In an interview after winning the Man of the Match award in DC’s win against SRH, Axar Patel expressed his confidence in his batting ability and his desire to be consistent and carry forward his form.

रोहित शर्मा ने टॉस के वक्त सुनाई बुरी खबर, मुंबई का ये घातक गेंदबाज चोट के चलते हुआ बाहर

GT vs MI: आईपीएल 2023 के 35वें मैच में आज गुजरात टाइटंस के सामने मुंबई इंडियंस की टीम है। इस मैच में मुंबई के कप्तान रोहित शर्मा ने टॉस जीतकर पहले गेंदबाजी का फैसला किया है। इस मैच में टॉस के वक्त MI के कप्तान रोहित ने एक बुरी खबर सुनाई। रोहित की टीम का एक स्टार खिलाड़ी चोट के चलते इस मैच से एक बार फिर से बाहर हो गया है।

रोहित की मुंबई को लगा झटका

मुंबई इंडियंस के घातक तेज गेंदबाज जोफ्रा आर्चर गुजरात के खिलाफ मुकाबले से बाहर हो गए हैं। रोहित ने बताया कि ये गेंदबाज आज के मैच के लिए पूरी तरह फिट नहीं था। ये पहला मौका नहीं है जब आर्चर अपनी फिटनेस के चलते किसी आईपीएल मुकाबले से बाहर हो रहे हैं। उनकी जगह टीम में राइली मेरेडिथ को मुंबई की प्लेइंग 11 में जगह दी गई है। मुंबई की टीम में आर्चर को 8 करोड़ रुपये में शामिल किया गया था।

आर्चर की फिटनेस चिंता का विषय

मुंबई इंडियंस ने आईपीएल 2022 से पहले हुए मेगा ऑक्शन में आर्चर को अपने साथ जोड़ा था। जबकि वह उस पूरे सीजन से बाहर रहने वाले थे। फिर भी पांच बार की चैंपियन फ्रेंचाइजी ने इस सीजन के आर्चर पर बोली लगाई थी। इस सीजन से पहले आर्चर फिट होकर लौटे भी थे और अपनी टीम इंग्लैंड के लिए भी उन्होंने अच्छा परफॉर्म किया था। आईपीएल 2023 में भी बुमराह के बिना वह मुंबई की एकमात्र अहम ताकत थे। लेकिन पहला मैच खेलने के बाद ही वह चोटिल हो गए। ये खिलाड़ी आईपीएल 2023 में लगातार हर मैच में नहीं खेल पा रहा है। 

दोनों टीमों की प्लेइंग 11:

गुजरात टाइटंस: ऋद्धिमान साहा (विकेटकीपर), शुभमन गिल, हार्दिक पांड्या (कप्तान), विजय शंकर, डेविड मिलर, अभिनव मनोहर, राहुल तेवतिया, राशिद खान, मोहम्मद शमी, नूर अहमद, मोहित शर्मा

मुंबई इंडियंस: रोहित शर्मा (कप्तान), ईशान किशन (विकेटकीपर), कैमरन ग्रीन, सूर्यकुमार यादव, टिम डेविड, नेहल वढेरा, कुमार कार्तिकेय, अर्जुन तेंदुलकर, राइली मेरेडिथ, पीयूष चावला, जेसन बेहरेनडॉर्फ
