Indian Batsman Shubhman Gill, crossed former England Test Captain “Nasir Hussain” on scoring highest runs in ICC U19 World cup, he achieved this feat on today, by knocking brilliant 102* runs against Pakistan in the Semifinal of ICC U19 World Cup 2018. Shubhman is the leading scorer for India in this tournament so far, while he is second on the list of Overall high scorer in ICC U19 world Cup 2018- just after WI’s Alick Athanaze. He scored three half-centuries and one-hundred in this tournament so far. Today his maiden U19 hundred against Pakistan helps India to reach in the Final against Australia.

Tournament is good going for this young batsman, his fifty against Australia in the first match of ICC Under-19 World Cup 2018 increase the moral of his team. Scored (90) and (86), by continuing his great form against all the teams of this tournament, now he scored 102* against Pakistan.

After his great innings, IPL- Franchise Kolkata Knight Riders bought him with the amount of 1.5Cr, on the first day of auction. Now, after this century: definitely he will get a chance, to play his first match for KKR in VIVO IPL 2018. KKR picks another super-star of this world cup, named Kamlesh Nagarkoti, who is currently playing for India in U19 World Cup, Kamlesh is picked for his super-fast bowling speed, which he bowled against Australia in this World Cup.

Shubman Gill, Opening order Batsman of Indian U19 Team, is now comparing with Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Gill and Kohli both are batted on No-3 , and at this position, record of both these players is fabulous. But this is not good enough for Gill, He needs to maintain his consistency like Virat kohli, to confirms his seat in Indian Team.
