Indian cricket's young gun Shubman Gill scored a double-century in the third unofficial Test against West Indies A at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad on Thursday. He scored an unbeaten 204 in only 250 deliveries, scoring at an impressive strike-rate of 81.60. He also broke Gautam Gambhir's record to become the youngest player to score a first-class double-hundred for India, at 19 years and 334 days.

Gill arrived at the crease with India A struggling at 14/3, having lost the key wickets of Priyank Panchal, Abhimanyu Easwaran and Mayank Agarwal. However, the Indian youngster soaked in the pressure and turned the tides in India's favour, adding 315 runs for the fifth-wicket partnership alongside captain Hanuma Vihari, who remained unbeaten on 118.
