Team India registered a great win in the first ODI against New Zealand. Team India’s opening batter Shubman Gill scored a brilliant double-century. He became the youngest player to score a double century in ODI cricket. The beginning of the year 2023 was very good for him. He had earlier scored a century against Bangladesh as well. Gill was also given the ‘Man of the Match’ award after the first ODI against New Zealand. After the first ODI, an old tweet of Rohit Sharma is going viral on social media.
Rohit Sharma called Shubman Gill the ‘future’ in a tweet in 2020. In fact, in 2020, while congratulating Rohit Sharma on his birthday, Shubman Gill said that no one does a better pull shot than Hitman. Happy Birthday. Thanking Gill, Rohit Sharma wrote, ‘Thank you future’.

Rohit Sharma’s prediction seems to be coming true. Shubman Gill is performing brilliantly in ODIs for Team India. Gill’s selection in ODI World Cup 2023 is believed to be fixed. He is standing on the trust of the selectors.
Before Gill, Rohit Sharma had also made a special tweet about Suryakumar Yadav, which later proved to be true. Rohit wrote in tweeting, ‘Awards work completed in Chennai with BCCI. Some of the best cricketers are coming forward.. Suryakumar Yadav from Mumbai.. Will keep an eye on him in future.’

Shubman Gill played an inning to remember for a lifetime against New Zealand
One of the features of Gill’s innings was his six-hitting, an aspect of his game that has often held him back in the shortest format. But on this occasion, he was at his fluent best and hit nine sixes in total, with three of them coming off successive balls to deliver him the double ton.
It was a one-man show and the BlackCaps didn’t really have many answers to him. Even the usually economical Mitchell Santner couldn’t put a lid on the scoring rate. The youngster played a destructive knock which included 19 fours and 9 sixes.
