Shubman Gill : Enormity of That Double Hundred

It's a special, very special knock by Shubman Gill, a lot more special than the very recent and much quicker Double hundred by Ishan Kishan. Here are some tidbits that tell the story of enormity.
Shubman: 208 of 149 balls
All others: 128 of 151 balls
Shubman: 19 fours, 9 sixers
All others: 12 fours, 2 sixers
Both sixers were hit by Rohit and no other batsman cleared the boundary after Rohit got out.
Second highest score: 34 (of 38 balls) by Captain Rohit as no other batter came anywhere near 50.
SKY with 31 of 26 was the only other batter to strike at above 100% (SR: 119.23) while Shubman scored at 139.59 strike rate.
Collective strike rate of all other batters was 84.77% compared to Shubman's 139.59%.
Shubman scored 61.9% of the runs coming of the bat and 59.6% of the team total, playing just under half of the 300 balls.
Shubman had a reprieve, thanks to missed catch by Latham. But that's always part of the game. The way he plated from 48th over is testimony to his ability to switch gears.
This was indeed a very special knock and in the process, Shubman Gill became the "Fastest Indian" to 1000 ODI runs.
The Shubman Gill era has officially begun !
