Gill, among Indians, is the fastest to reach the 1,000 run mark. He has overtaken heavyweights Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan, who touched the 100-run mark in 24 innings.

Gill, 23, is the youngest double centurion in the history of ODI cricket. He has overtaken compatriot Ishan Kishan, who had recently smashed 210 against Bangladesh in December 2022. Before this, Rohit Sharma was the youngest double centurion, having scored one in 2013 when he was 26. Gill is the fifth Indian batter to do so. Sachin Tendulkar was the first-ever batter to smash a double hundred in ODIs. After this, this feat was repeated by Rohit Sharma (thrice), Virender Sehwag, and Ishan Kishan before Gill smashed his double ton.

Gill is overall the eighth batter to hit an ODI double ton. Besides the Indian batters, there are three non-Indian players who have touched the 200-run mark - Chris Gayle (West Indies), Martin Guptill (New Zealand) and Fakhar Zaman (Pakistan).
