Gill is the youngest person to reach 200 and the fastest Indian to reach 1000.
India’s score is the lowest in an ODI inning including a hundred and a thousand.
- The 208 runs scored by Shubman Gill in Hyderabad are the highest by an ODI player against New Zealand. In 1999, again in Hyderabad, Sachin Tendulkar scored 186 not out.
- Gill, who was 23 and 132 days old for the inaugural ODI, played in that match. He has broken the record for the youngest man to score a century in men’s one-day internationals. Ishan Kishan, at 24 years and 145 days old, scored 210 not out against Bangladesh last month to become the youngest player to ever do so.
- Gill needs 19 innings to reach 1000 runs in One-Day Internationals. He and Imam-ul-Haq now share the position of being the second fastest to reach that point. Fakhar Zaman reached the milestone in 18 innings, the shortest time of any player. The previous record for the fastest Indian to reach 1000 ODI runs was held by Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan (24 innings).
- India scored 349 for 8 in Hyderabad, the lowest total in ODIs to include a double century. In the 2015 World Cup, West Indies scored 372 for 2 against Zimbabwe, with Chris Gayle scoring 215.
- Gill, along with one other batsman, scored a double-century in a One-Day International match in Hyderabad in which no other player reached fifty. In 2015, Martin Guptill hit 237* against the West Indies, while Ross Taylor scored 42.
- India’s top two scores in the Hyderabad ODI were 208 (Gill) and 34 (Rohit Sharma), a margin of 174 runs. The disparity between the top two scores in ODI innings is the third largest ever recorded. In 2014, whilst playing Sri Lanka, Rohit scored 264, which is the greatest score ever. There was a tie for the highest score in that innings, but Virat Kohli’s 66 came in at a close second.
