After demonstrating his worth with consistent performances in the most recent one-day international (ODI) series against West Indies and Zimbabwe, respectively, batsman Shubman Gill of Team India has emerged as a fantastic possibility for the Men in Blue’s one-day international (ODI) team.
The young player not only established himself as the series’ leading run-scorer on both tours but also astounded cricket experts with the quality of his batting technique.
Gill has been successful in earning acclaim from a variety of industry professionals, including the Indian spin legend Harbhajan Singh. The former off-spinner has been taken aback by Gill’s shot selection as well as his technically sound technique. According to the Turbantor, he sees echoes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul in his batting.
What did Harbhajan Singh say about Shubman Gill?
In an interview with the Times of India, Harbhajan stated the following:
“He’s a well-rounded batter, with solid technique and really an excellent shot selection. When it comes to his skills as a batter, I would put him in the same category as other players in the current Indian squad, such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul. You just like watching them bat.”
Harbhajan continued by expressing his firm conviction that Shubman Gill would one day serve as Team India’s leader.
He said: “According to me, he will one day captain India. He’s got the skills, and he’ll figure out how to be captain eventually. Therefore, why not?”
In the third and final one-day international match against Zimbabwe, Shubman Gill not only achieved his first century in international cricket but was also named the Player of the Series. The right-handed batsman amassed 245 runs over the course of three games, for an average of 122.5. This includes an undefeated 82 in the first one-day international that he played in.
After racking up a century against the African team, the kid voiced his appreciation to the crowd. He dedicated the hundred to his father, whom he regarded as his major mentor and coach, and thanked him for everything.
