Shubman Gill, a young Indian batsman, has had a breakout year in international cricket, particularly in the ODI format. He recently moved up 20 spots in the ICC Men’s ODI Rankings to land at a career-best number six.

With this performance, he also reached the milestone of 2,000 runs in international cricket.

Gill’s performances in the ODI format have been particularly impressive, with 1,254 runs at an average of 73.76 in 21 innings. He has four centuries and five half-centuries, with a top score of 208. In Test cricket, he has also been consistent, with 736 runs at an average of 32 in 25 innings, with one century and four half-centuries.
