Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan hold the record for the fastest 1000 runs for India in ODIs. Both of them had achieved this feat in 24 innings, but now this record seems to be in danger. Team India’s young opener Shubman Gill seems to be a strong contender to demolish this record. Gill has so far scored 894 runs in 18 ODI innings, and can go ahead of Virat and Dhawan once he scores 106 runs in the three-match ODI series against New Zealand starting today. If Gill does this today itself, then his 1000 ODI runs will be completed in 19 innings.

Overall, the world record of the fastest 1000 runs in ODIs is in the name of Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman. Fakhar did this feat in 18 innings. Gill could not break his record, but he can match Pakistan’s Imam-ul-Haq, who is running second in this case, who did this feat in 19 innings. If Gill scores 106 runs in three innings of this series, he will become the fastest batsman to score 1000 ODI runs from India.

Looking at Gill’s form, it looks like he will achieve this record during this series. In the recently concluded three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, Gill put in a strong performance. Gill played innings of 70, 21 and 116 runs in three innings respectively. India did a 3-0 clean sweep in the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
