Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 232,768 views on Friday, 26 May 2023 our article of the day is Shubman Gill.

Shubman Gill (born 8 September 1999) is an Indian cricketer who plays for Punjab in domestic cricket as a right-handed opening batsman. He plays for Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League.

Notably, Gill served as the vice-captain of the Indian Under-19 cricket team in the 2018 Under-19 Cricket World Cup and received the prestigious Player of the Tournament award. He is considered as one of the most talented young cricketers in the world. Additionally, he holds the distinction of being the youngest cricketer to ever score a double century in One Day International cricket. He also holds the record for the highest score made by an individual for the Indian men's T20I team.

He made his List-A debut against Vidharbha in 2017 and first-class debut for Punjab against Bengal in the 2017–18 Ranji Trophy, in late 2017, with a half-century in the game, and 129 runs in the LAST match against Services. He made his international debut for the Indian cricket team in January 2019. He was drafted into India's Under-19 side as the vice-captain for the 2018 Under-19 Cricket World Cup. Shubman scored 372 runs at an average of 124.00 at the tournament, where he batted at number three to play a crucial role in India's record fourth world title and was adjudged the edition's Player of the Tournament. His match-winning 102 not out in the semi-final against arch-rivals Pakistan U-19 drew praises from batting greats such as Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, and Sourav Ganguly.
