CricketShubman Gill will break my World record scores of 400* and 501*, predicts Brian Lara

Srinagar: West Indies legend Brian Lara has predicted that India young star Shubman Gill will be breaking his records of 400* and 501*.

Brian Lara had become the first and to date the only cricketer to hit 400 in a Test match against England in 2004. He also holds the record for the highest individual score in first-class cricket. The left-hander had scored an unbeaten 501 in a County Championship match for Warwickshire against Durham way back in 1994.

“Shubman Gill can break both my records,” Lara told Anandabazar Patrika.
“Gill is the most talented batter in this new generation. He will rule cricket in the coming years. I believe he will go on to break many big records,” he added.

“He (Gill) can do it (break my records),” Lara said again.

Lara believes Gill will win many ICC tournaments for India in the coming years.

“Gill didn’t score a century (in the World Cup) but look a the knocks he has already played. He has centuries in all formats, has smashed a double hundred in ODIs and has also played many match-winnings in the IPL. I’m sure he will many ICC tournaments in the future,” he added.

‘Have you seen how Gill charges down the fast bowlers?’: Lara

“If Gill plays County cricket then he can break my 501*. In Test cricket, he can surely go past 400. Cricket has changed a lot, especially batting. Batters play t20 leagues across the globe. IPL has changed everything. The scoring rate has gone up. So you will keep seeing big scores. Shubman will score big, mark my words,” Lara added.
