Shubman Gill

Shubman Gill became a household name after he helped India win the U-19 Cricket World Cup in January 2018. Gill was later selected for the Indian Premier League 2018 and played for Shah Rukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders.

Gill plays for Punjab in Ranji Trophy and so far in his 8 matches he have scored 990 runs at an average of 82.50. Gill made his debut for against Bengal on November 17, 2017. He started his first-class cricket with a half-century and an attacking 129 in the next match.


He needs 10 more runs to reach the 1000 mark in 9 matches, a feat nobody has achieved in Ranji Trophy before.

In 2014, he smacked 351 in Punjab's Inter-District Under-16 tournament, and shared a record opening stand of 587 with Nirmal Singh. On his Under-16 state debut for Punjab, he made an unbeaten double-century in the Vijay Merchant Trophy. Later that year, he went on to share the stage with his idol Virat Kohli while receiving a BCCI award for the best junior cricketer, which he won for two successive years: 2013-14 and 2014-15.
