On Day 3 of the first Test match between India and Bangladesh in Chattogram, Shubman Gill hit his first test century.

The first batter blasted eight fours and two sixes on his way to reaching the triple-figure mark in 147 pitches.

 On 110 off Mehidy Hasan, the 23-year-old holed out to a deep mid-wicket fielder.

 Before Taijul Islam picked him up caught behind in the first inning, he had only scored 20 runs.

 In Brisbane in 2021, Gill's previous high score came against Australia and was 91.

Gill got four fifty-plus scores in Test cricket in his prior 21 innings. It was Gill's ninth 100-plus score in First Class cricket.

Gill first put together a 70-run partnership with KL Rahul before stepping up to the plate with India holding a 254-run lead after the first innings.

Pujara joined Gill at the crease for India after Rahul was dismissed.

A partnership of 108 runs between Gill and Pujara helped India increase the margin of victory above 400 runs.
