Records are broken by Shubman Gill in India's largest victory


India won yet another bilateral match at home, defeating New Zealand with an unprecedented margin and delaying the visitors' first series victory in India. Shubman Gill (126* off 63) and Hardik Pandya, the captain of the Gujarat Titans, demolished New Zealand in the decisive game of the closely contested series.

Stats highlights from the third T20I in Ahmedabad:

(5) Gill joined Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli as the only other Indian batters to reach the milestone of 100 runs in each of the three different forms. After Ahmed Shehzad, who did it in 2014 at the age of just 22 years and 127 days, Gill became the second-youngest player from any team to complete the triple at 23 years and 146 days.

The best individual score for India in T20 Internationals is 126* by Gill, surpassing Virat Kohli's 122* against Afghanistan in Dubai during the Asia Cup last year. He also broke the previous record for the youngest Indian player to register a T20I century, which was held by Suresh Raina, who did so in World T20 2010 at the age of 23 years and 156 days.

1 - Gill has surpassed Richard Levi's undefeated 117 in Hamilton in 2012 to hold the record for the highest individual score by a player against New Zealand in Twenty20. In ODI cricket, Gill made history last month when he scored a double century in opposition to them.

10 – India has failed to win the opening game of a bilateral T20I series (minimum three games) ten times. Even though they were down 1-0 in the series, they won it seven times, with two games ending in ties (the only defeat came in New Zealand in 2019).

The largest victory margin in a T20I between two Full Member teams was 168 runs. In 2018, India defeated Ireland in Dublin by a margin of 143 runs, and Pakistan defeated the West Indies in Karachi by a margin of 143 runs. Only Sri Lanka's 172-run victory against Kenya in the 2007 World T20 in Johannesburg qualifies as a larger victory for a Full Member team in any T20I.

After 60 against Sri Lanka in Chattogram in 2014 and against Bangladesh in Mirpur in 2021, 66 is the third-lowest total for New Zealand in T20Is. In the format, it also happens to be the lowest total for a team playing India.

There have been two Indian batsmen in T20Is who have outscored the opponents. In Dubai last year, Virat Kohli struck 122* against Afghanistan (111/8), and in Ahmedabad, Gill hit 126* against New Zealand (66).

Since October 2019, India has hosted 24 bilateral series at home, winning 23 of them. With the exception of a tie against South Africa in June of last year after a washout in the decisive fifth game, they have won all five of their Test series, all seven of their ODI series, and 11 of their 12 T20 series.
