Yet another IPL record has been crossed by the dynamic Shubman Gill. The Gujarat Titans opener has been in sublime form and the batter has crossed Faf du Plessis to become the leading run-scorer in IPL 2023.

While du Plessis has 730 runs in 14 matches, Gill has gone past him and currently has 734 runs in 16 matches.

It has been a tournament to remember for the young Gill, who recently racked up back-to-back centuries. The striking point of Gill’s season has been an increase in the strike-rate. The right-handed batter has scored at a strike-rate of 149.17, and that has been the difference maker for the Gujarat Titans this season.

Talking about Faf du Plessis, the RCB skipper has played two matches less, and averages nearly 56.15. Moreover, he has struck at 153.68, which solidifies his monumental season for the RCB side.

In the ongoing Qualifier game between the Gujarat Titans and the Mumbai Indians, GT are batting at 23 without a wicket loss. Gill is batting at 14 off 11.
