Shubman Gill stated that at a difficult period in his career, he did not consider returning to the opening position at bat.

Batsman Shubman Gill of the Indian cricket team revealed that during a difficult period in his career, he did not consider returning to the opening position. Gill struggled to score runs prior to the current series, but on Day 2 of the fifth Test match against England at Dharamsala on Friday, he hammered a stunning century. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma opened the batting, and Gill was placed at number three, a position he took some getting used to. But he recovered magnificently, and in the current five-match Test series against England, he has already amassed over 400 runs. 

“You tend to ponder a lot when you don’t score, which is exactly what I was thinking. However, returning to the opening was not on my mind,” Gill reportedly told the broadcasters.

Gill disclosed his higher average in the third and fourth innings of Test matches when compared to the first two, as well as his strategy of pacing his innings based on the circumstances.

“I know what I’m aiming for when I take the field in the second innings. He said, “I know how to go about it and how to pace my innings.”

Gill’s father and first coach, Lakhwinder, disagrees with his son’s choice to bat at number three, but he feels his son’s decision to go out to the bowlers once more has allowed him to get back in the running in Test cricket.

“He ought to have kept on opening. I feel like it is really wrong. The pressure increases as you remain in the changing room longer. The third position is neither middle-order nor opening.

Additionally, his style of play is different; it works well for players with defensive styles like Cheteshwar Pujara. You get more loose balls when the ball is brand-new, but after five to seven overs, it’s still shining and the bowler has found his length.”
