Shubman Gill, India’s premier batsman, has received a significant honour from the International Cricket Council. Gill was named Player of the Month in January after shocking everyone with his bat.
Every month, the ICC presents the Player of the Month title to the highest performing players. Shubman Gill of India, Mohammad Siraj of Pakistan, and Devon Conway of New Zealand were all nominated for this award in January. Gill has won the January championship, surpassing both of the other players. Gill’s bat has dazzled the entire globe since the beginning of this year.
Last month, India’s Shubman Gill hit a magnificent double century against New Zealand. He has already been named ICC Men’s Player of the Month for January 2023. He was followed by Devon Conway of New Zealand and Mohammad Siraj of Pakistan.
Gill has earned the ICC Player of the Month title for the first time following another strong run of ODI performances. Gill was the leading candidate on the shortlist in January, with 567 runs, including three centuries. As predicted, the 23-year-old batsman earned the honour. Gill wowed fans in January with his powerful strokeplay.
India played a lot of T20 and ODI matches in a month, and many of them were memorable for Gill. His greatest performance came in Hyderabad, when he batted well for a magnificent double century in a dramatic triumph over New Zealand. Gill hit an undefeated 208 runs off 149 balls, including 28 fours.
It’s a remarkable achievement, not only because he was the youngest player to get a double hundred in ODIs, but also because the other batters were unable to survive on that wicket.
Gill added two additional centuries to his stunning double century. He scored 116 against Sri Lanka and 112 against New Zealand in the last ODI. Gill won the title in a global poll over New Zealand opening batter Devon Conway and compatriot Mohammed Siraj. He is the first Indian to win this award since Virat Kohli in October 2022.
