Shubman Gill smashed a tennis forehand-like shot during his 129-run knock against MI, which stuns Rohit Sharma along with commentators Gavaskar and Bishop.
The opener of Gujarat Titans produced a brilliant batting performance on Friday night as he scored 129 runs in 60 balls and helped his team get a 62-run victory over Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023 qualifier 2. This victory secured a place for GT in the finals of the IPL 2023, where they are going to take on the Chennai Super Kings. Gill smacked 10 sixes and seven fours in his inning. However, there was one shot in the 17th over of the innings against Cameron Green that left everyone, including Rohit Sharma and commentators Gavaskar and Bishop, stunned.
As Green bowled a short-pitched delivery, Gill charged down the track and played an almost tennis forehand-like slap shot over deep midwicket for a crazy six, leaving even the on-air commentators Ian Bishop and Sunil Gavaskar bewildered. The latter termed it a “tennis” shot, saying, “It’s a parallel six! It’s almost like a tennis shot!”

After seeing the breathtaking shot of Gill Bishop, she exclaimed, “Oh glorious, my goodness.”
This was the third century for Gill in the Indian Premier League season 2023, as he crossed the 800-run mark in this year’s solution.
