Stats: Gill's 5th ton before turning 25; Mohit registers best spell for GT

A few noteworthy stats from the second Qualifier of IPL 2023 between Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians

Shubman Gill shines again with another century; his third in the IPL. Thanks to his efforts, Gujarat posted a mammoth total of 233. While defending, Mohit Sharma shone with a five-for. There were plenty of stats, and here are a few of them.

Gill's another day out with records

- This IPL, Gill now has 851 runs, the third-most by a batter in a season of IPL. He is one of four batters to score 800+ runs in a single season. 

- He has scored 533 runs in Ahmedabad, the second-most for a batter in an IPL season at a single venue. This is second only to Virat Kohli's 597 runs in 2016 in Bengaluru. 

- Gill now has three centuries in this season. Only two batters have hit more centuries than he has in a single season of IPL. 

- At 23 years and 260 days, the Gujarat opener became the youngest to hit a century in the IPL playoffs. He is the first batter to hit a century in this stage before turning 25. 

- His three centuries are the most for a batter in the IPL before turning 25. Sanju Samson had two (102 vs RPS in 2017 & 102* vs SRH in  2019).

- With this century, Gill has the most tons (5) for a batter in all T20s before turning 25. He has three IPL tons, one T20I ton (against Sri Lanka, 2023) and the other in Syed Mushtaq Ali (against Karnataka, 2022). Glenn Phillips had four. 

- Gill's 129 from 60 balls is the highest individual score by a batter in an IPL playoffs game.

- Among Indian batters in the IPL, only KL Rahul against Royal Challengers Bangalore (132*) has a higher score than Gill. 

- Tonight, Gill smashed ten sixes, the most by a batter in an IPL playoffs innings. 

- Overall, among Indian batters in the IPL, only Murali Vijay has hit more sixes in an innings (11 against Rajasthan Royals in 2010). Two other batters, Shreyas Iyer (against Kolkata Knight Riders) and Sanju Samson (against Bangalore), had hit ten sixes in 2018. 

- In all T20s, Gill joins Michael Klinger in an elite list of hitting three centuries in four innings.

Mohit does it again for Gujarat

- In the IPL, Mohit becomes the second bowler after Akash Madhwal, in the previous game, to bag a five-for in an IPL playoffs encounter. 

- Mohit's spell of 5/10 is also the joint-second-best spell alongside Jasprit Bumrah (5/10 against Kolkata in 2022) for an Indian in the IPL. Anil Kumble (against Rajasthan in 2009) and Madhwal (against Lucknow in 2009) hold the record for the best figures (5/5).

- In his spell, he conceded only ten runs, the joint-second-least runs given away in a five-wicket haul in the IPL.

- Mohit bowled 2.2 overs for his five-for. Only Andre Russell, against the same opponents in 2021, had bowled fewer overs to achieve this feat. 

- Mohit is the first Gujarat bowler to bag a five-wicket haul in the IPL. Mohammed Shami against Delhi Capitals in 2023 had figures of 4/11, the previous best. 

Surya shines bright

- With 605 runs to his name, Suryakumar Yadav became the second Mumbai batter to score 600+ runs in an IPL season.  

- In IPL 2023, he scored those runs at a strike rate of 181.1, the best for an Indian batter with 500+ runs in a single season.  

- Surya had six fifties to his name this IPL (50s/100s 5/1), the joint-most for Mumbai, alongside Lendl Simmons in 2015 (50s/100s - 6/0). 

Few other stats

- Mohammed Shami bagged his 17th wicket in the powerplay this season, the most by a bowler. 

- The top three wickets takers, Shami (28), Rashid Khan (27), and Mohit Sharma (24), are all from Gujarat; only the third instance of the top two wicket-takers being from the same team. 

- Gujarat posted 233/3 while batting first, the highest in an IPL playoffs encounter. This is also their highest total in the IPL. 

- Two Mumbai bowlers conceded 50+ runs in this innings, Madhwal (0/52) and Chris Jordan (0/56). In all IPL, this is only the second such instance. Against Bangalore in 2015, Bumrah (0/52) and Hardik Pandya (0/51) went for 50+ runs. 

- In this IPL, Mumbai bowlers conceded at an economy of 9.6, the worst for a team in an IPL season.
