On Wednesday, Gujarat Titans’ skipper Shubman Gill marked a significant moment in his career by becoming the second-youngest player to reach the 100-match milestone in the IPL. Gill reached this impressive feat as he stepped onto the field for the toss against Delhi Capitals at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

Gujarat Titans’ captain, Shubman Gill, made headlines by surpassing Virat Kohli‘s record and achieving another milestone in the Indian Premier League during the 40th match of the cash-rich league. After clinching victory against Punjab Kings in their last match, the former champions arrived in the national capital with high spirits. Taking over the leadership from Hardik, Gill led the Gujarat Titans franchise into the new season and marked his 100th appearance in the IPL on Wednesday.

Shubman Gill led GT to an unblemished record of four victories from as many matches in the 2024 edition of the cash-rich league before facing Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals on matchday 40 of the IPL. Joining IPL 2024 captains Hardik, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, and Pant, Gill enters the esteemed list of Indian players with 100 IPL appearances. Notably, at 24 years and 229 days, Gill secures the title of the second-youngest and fastest Indian to reach the milestone of 100 matches in the world’s richest T20 league. Surpassing Kohli at the age of 24, Gill becomes the youngest Indian to achieve this feat, with Samson (25) and Piyush Chawla (26) trailing behind on the exclusive list.
