He has a strike-rate of 172.80 in Ahmedabad and has smoked 52 fours and 23 sixes. Although Gill is but to play an ODI at this venue, he already has centuries in T20Is – 126 no longer out in opposition to New Zealand – and Tests – 128 in opposition to Australia in the course of this year’s Border-Gavaskar trophy.
