Shubman Gill’s magnificent form in 2023 continued with a century unbeaten as India beat New Zealand by 168 points and won the T20 series 2-1.
Gill smashed 126 from just 63 to help India reach 234-4 in Ahmedabad.
The 23-year-old fly-half now has a double century, three centuries and fifty in 12 innings this year and becomes the fifth Indian player to score one hundred in all three international formats.
Hardik Pandya then took 4-16 as New Zealand were knocked out for 68.
Gill is also the seventh Indian player to hit a T20 international cent in what was only his sixth appearance.
Last month, Gill became the youngest man to hit a double ton in a one-day international at the age of 23 years and 132 days in a thrilling victory against New Zealand in Hyderabad.
His searing strike, including 12 fours and seven sixes, formed the backbone of India’s innings and included a 103-run partnership for the fourth wicket with substitute skipper Pandya, who hit 30 from 17 balls.
Rahul Tripathi added a quick 44 from 22 balls and Suryakumar Yadav 30 from 13 to help India display an imposing target.
New Zealand needed a quick start to stay on top of the pace but lost four wickets in the first 16 balls of their innings to collapse to 7-4, with Michael Bracewell dropping two overs later to leave the Kiwis in shock at 21-5.
Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik and Shivam Mavi all took two wickets as the tourists were all inside 13 overs.
Daryl Mitchell was the only Black Caps player to show resistance with 35, with Mitchell Santner (13) the only other to hit double figures.
