Shubhman Gill, who captain India C in the recently concluded Deodhar Trophy, broke Virat Kohli’s decade-old record as he led his team to the final.

The 20-year-old, Gill, became the youngest player to captain a side in the Deodhar Trophy final, superseding senior team skipper Virat Kohli.

At the age of 21, Virat had captained North Zone in the summit clash back in the 2009-10 season.

However, the young batsmen couldn’t mark this special occasion with a memorable knock as India C lost the game against India B.

Virat Kohli, meanwhile, had led his team to a comfortable victory over West Zone to lift the title.

Virat’s Delhi teammate Unmukkt Chand is third in the table, having captained a title-winning India B side back in 2015 when he was 20.

Chasing 284, India lost the game by 51 runs as Shahbaz Nadeem, who earned his first test-cap for the senior side, bagged four wickets.

Earlier in the day, India B had scored 283 with Kedhar Jadhav and Yashasvi Jaiswal smashing fifties.

For India C, Ishan Porel starred with the ball as he scalped a fifer, his second in a List A match.
