Record breaking: Shubman Gill and Michael Bracewell shine bright at Hyderabad

It is rare to see a double century-winning knock match another in the same ODI as what happened today in Hyderabad. Shubman Gill’s 208 was enough to propel India to a record 349 runs on a difficult surface. This is evident by the fact that only 35 other players reached the top of the order. When the visitors had been reduced to 131/6, it looked like the match was over. However, Mitchell Santner (57), and Michael Bracewell (140), staged a remarkable comeback that almost led to victory for India. They were only 12 runs short of their target.

1 Gill became first to score a double-100 in ODIs against New Zealand. He beat Sachin Tendulkar’s unbeaten 186 at Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium, the same city in 1999. This was the previous highest individual score against New Zealand.

Gill’s 19 innings to achieve 1000 ODI runs was the joint-second-fastest by a batter in this format, after Imam-ul-Haq. Fakhar Zaman is the fastest, having reached the milestone in just one inning. Virat Kohli (India) and Shikhar Dawan (India) were the fastest.


174 This is the third largest margin of error in an innings. The difference between Gill (208) (and the next highest scorer, Rohit Sharma’s 34), is 174 runs. This is the highest difference in an innings. Rohit Sharma scored 264 runs and Virat Kohli scored 66 against Sri Lanka in Kolkata in 2014.


2 Bracewell became only the second batsman to score multiple hundreds batting below #7 in ODI cricket’s history after MS Dhoni. After his unbeaten 127 run in an ODI chase of 301 last July, Bracewell scored this third-figure run. He also walked in at 120/5 against Ireland. His 140 overall score is joint third for players batting seven or less in ODIs.


57 balls by Bracewell is third fastest ODI century for New Zealand, behind Corey Anderson (36) and Jesse Ryder (46) who both achieved the feat in Queenstown on New Year’s Day 2014. Only Shahid Afridi, who reached 100 in just 45 balls in Kanpur, in 2005, has been able to beat India.


The 162-run partnership of Bracewell & Santner is third in ODI cricket’s seventh wicket or lower stand and the highest for New Zealand. It surpasses 123 run by Neil Broom & Jacob Oram against Bangladesh in Napier 2010. It was also the highest against India, surpassing 148 by Mahmudullah and Mehidy Hasan at Mirpur last month.
