Skipper Rohit Sharma said,
“To be honest, the way Bracewell was batting, we knew it was going to be a challenge.”
Earlier, Gill helped India register a formidable total of 349-8 after an inning spanning 149 balls and featuring 19 fours and nine sixes.
Meanwhile, Gill said,
“I wasn’t thinking about 200 before I hit those sixes in the (49th) over. That’s when I thought I could get a double. I won’t call it a ‘wow’ feeling but it feels nice when the ball goes off the bat how you want it. There’s certainly a feeling of satisfaction. It has sunk in pretty well, this is certainly one of those things, like what dreams are made of.”
