Shubman Gill - The Future Batting Star

One of the few batters to have emerged from India’s Under-19 team is Shubman Gill. Still new to the international scene, the Punjab-born batter has got what it takes to make it big at the world stage. Batting at number 3, Gill scored a total of 372 runs at an average of 124 as India won the Under-19 World Cup in 2018. He was adjudged the Player of Tournament for his contributions. A keen learner and an obedient student of cricketing legend Rahul Dravid, Gill’s promotion to the senior team was only a matter of time. That happened less than a year later against New Zealand in January 2019.

Gill has been in the books of the Kolkata team in the Indian T20 League since 2018 and is one of the regular features of their batting line-up. The Kolkata team put a lot of faith in him when it comes to a speedy start to their innings. Though Gill mentions the pull shot as his favorite one, he is also a good driver of the ball. His cover and straight drives are a joy to watch.

His Test debut, in Australia, was also a special occasion to mark. The India team had been thrashed in the first Test in Adelaide. Gill made his debut in the second one. It was a memorable series for the youngster as his contributions led the way to an injury-hit team winning the 4-match series 2-1.
