India are all set to face Australia in the final of the World Cup 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium. The hosts won their only game against Pakistan at this venue comfortably, registering a seven-wicket win while the Pat Cummins-led side also thumped England by 33 runs at this ground.
In the marquee contest, eyes will be set on India opener Shubman Gill, whose record is magnificent at this venue. The right-handed batter has consistently supported Rohit Sharma to deliver fine starts to his team in the tournament, thus far. Gill has notched up 350 runs with four half-centuries in eight contests. His average is 50.00 in the competition while the strike rate is 108.02.
Gill played his first One-Day International (ODI) at the Narendra Modi Stadium, in this tournament against Pakistan. While following a low score of 192, the 24-year-old scored 16 runs off 11 deliveries, with four fours. Before the marquee clash against Australia, it’s time to have a look at the overall cricketing records of Gill in Ahmedabad.
