He also talked about his century-scoring spree, where he first highlighted his long wait and then followed it up with details about how it felt when he went on to score the big knock. He was getting very close with an impeccable 91 against Australia in the Gabba and 98 against West Indies after which rain played spoilsport.
This is what Gill said about his opening international century
Gill said, “I was very eagerly waiting for my first hundred after that 91. I think it was the universe listening to me and all of my prayers being answered. It has a lot to do with me being patient as I was quite desperate, to be honest, to get my first hundred. Having to wait for almost a year and a half before I got it in Zimbabwe, and before that it started raining when I was on 98 in the West Indies. I think it was all of that patience and everything just coming to me at once.”
