Team India’s promising batsman Shubman Gill missed a well-deserved century in the second innings of the third Test against England at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Sunday.

Gill missed the century by a whisker as he was run out after scoring 91 off 151 deliveries. Gill was playing brilliantly and looking to complete his century but failed because of a mix-up with Kuldeep Yadav leading to a run out.

Kuldeep Yadav sent the ball to mid-on where Ben Stokes was present. However, Gill was halfway when he realized that Kuldeep was not running. Subsequently, he turned back and dived. But Tom Hartley knocked off the bails quickly to get him run out. Gill was livid with Kuldeep as he was disgusted while walking back. Meanwhile, Kuldeep sunk to his knees in disappointment and regret as he realized his mistake.

Notably, Gill was out for a duck in the first innings. However, he made for it after scoring a brilliant 91 in the second innings which included nine boundaries and two sixes.
