Shubman Gill has been a revelation for India and the Gujarat Titans since the last few seasons, as he has turned out to be a run machine for both sides. 2023 saw Gill emerge as the top run-getter in international cricket across formats, with 7 centuries to his name post his stunning IPL season, where he hammered 890 runs at a staggering strike rate of 157.80 in 17 innings.

He made his IPL debut in 2018 for the Kolkata Knight Riders and batted at various batting positions for them. At times, Gill was inconsistent, as he managed to score 1417 runs in 55 innings at a paltry strike rate of 123 with just 10 half-centuries to his name.

But his arrival at the Gujarat Titans in 2022 saw him turn a new leaf as he transformed his T20 game over the seasons. He first made a respectable 483 at a strike rate of 132.33 in the 2022 season, followed by a stunning 890 in the following edition.

Now, these runs wouldn’t have come without a single century, and here in this piece, we will list down the newly appointed GT skipper Shubman Gill’s career centuries in the IPL.
