Gujarat Titans star opener Shubman Gill completed his third century in IPL 2023 as he took apart the Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 2. After a rain delay, Gujarat was put into bat and was given an incredible start by Shubman Gill, who picked his spots and gradually got into the groove.
Soon after Wriddhiman Saha's wicket, Gill took control and carried the Titans' through the middle overs. After taking on the pacers, the India international took on the spinners and targeted Piyush Chawla. Batting with Sai Sudharshan, the duo posted a massive 94-run partnership before reaching a magnificent century in 49 balls.

At the back of this century, Gujarat Titans posted a massive 233-run total. Reacting to his knock, Shubman Gill spoke about how he targetted the right areas and opted for rotating the strike when the boundary wasn't available,
He said, "I went to the washroom and did not know I would be wearing this [on the Orange cap]. Got a good total, hopefully, we will defend this. A lot, sweat went into my eyes and I was not able to open them. We have played our best cricket when we have lost and this is one of those days."
"Definitely, it plays a part, you have to know which side to target, if it's bigger boundaries and they bowl in good areas, look for doubles, smaller boundaries look to take it on. The new ball held up a bit, there was not much grass on that wicket, the ball was coming on nicely and with the outfield wet it stopped swinging after 2 overs. I wish this was possible - I will carry it everywhere."
