Shubman Gill becomes the sixth Indian to retire after more than 90 innings in the Test, this is the list

Shubman Gill fell victim to nervous nights on the fourth day of the India-England Test match played in Rajkot. He missed his century by just 9 runs. Interestingly, he returned to the pavilion after leaving it. Generally, when a batsman is close to a century, he rarely makes the mistake of being run out. This is also the reason why the number of batsmen retired after playing more than 90 innings in Test cricket is very low. Talking about Indian batsmen, this was the sixth time in Test cricket that an Indian player got out after playing innings of 90+.

Before Shubman Gill, the five Indian batsmen who have hit 90+ in Tests include big names like Dhoni and Vengsarkar. Vinoo Mankad was first released in this way in 1953. During the match against West Indies, he was bowled out with a score of 96. Afterwards, in 1960, Jaisimha was bowled out by Pakistan for 99.

In 1982, Dilip Vengsarkar retired after scoring 90 runs in a Test match against Sri Lanka. However, in 1997, Ajay Jadeja had to return to the pavilion after running out of scores of 96 runs. In 2012, MS Dhoni was also bowled out with a score of 99. He was only eliminated against England.

Shubman Gill seemed to be in good form in the Rajkot Test. In the third innings of the match, he played an innings of 91 runs without giving the English bowlers much of a chance. He faced 151 balls. In the last game, Shubman had scored a brilliant hundredth but this time he failed to score a hundredth.
