Shubman Gill scored an unbeaten double-century as India A put up a brave fight in their second innings to draw the first unofficial Test against New Zealand A in Christchurch on Sunday.


Trailing the hosts’ mammoth first innings total of 562/7 by 219 runs at the start of the fourth and final day of the match at the Hagley Oval, India A finished the day with 448/3 as Gill (204 not out), Priyank Panchal (115) and skipper Hanuma Vihari (100 not out) starred with the bat.

In India A’s first innings, Gill was also the highest scorer with 83 runs out of his team’s total of 216.

The Punjab batter would be hoping for a Test call-up for the two-match Test series against India. Gill had made his ODI debut for India against New Zealand in 2019 but has since not featured for the Men in Blue across formats.

The BCCI is expected to announce the Indian squad for the two-match Test series against New Zealand soon. The series commences from February 21.
