Lara, who holds the record for the highest Test individual score of 400* against England in 2004, touted Gill to break his record.

Lara also holds the record for an unbeaten 501 in a County Championship match for Warwickshire against Durham in 1994. Meanwhile, Gill became the youngest Indian to score a century in all formats. He also is the youngest player to score a double hundred in ODIs.
