Shubman Gill entered the West Indies tour in good shape, but he hasn’t been able to perform to the level of his talent.
Shubman In good form going into the West Indies trip, Gill hasn’t been able to perform to his full capacity. Gill lost his past three games by a combined score of one point. The 23-year-old top-order batsman hasn’t managed to reach a half-century in the Caribbean before, with the exception of an 85 in one of the ODIs. Gill’s recent form is certain to cause more problems for India, especially with the Asia Cup and World Cup rapidly coming.
Gill has participated in 18 Tests, 27 ODIs, and 9 T20Is to date. He continues to be a key component of India’s plans in all three formats.
“Shubman Gill hasn’t been able to score big for a long time, therefore I suppose the Indian squad may already be worried about him. Additionally, he has struggled a bit against left-arm spinners. The pitches are a little difficult, without a doubt, but if you play at the international level, you’ll see a variety of playing surfaces. There’s no guarantee that Indian pitches will always be the same, allowing you to play powerful strokes over the line.
However, in my opinion, the Indian team has decided that going forward, Shubman Gill would open the innings with Rohit Sharma, according to RP Singh’s comments to JioCinema.
An ex-Indian opener named Wasim Jaffer gave Gill some more useful tips.
These West Indies surfaces are like that; you have to wait for them rather than just keeping hitting upwards, like Shubman prefers. However, he must realise that not all places would have the same conditions as Ahmedabad. He will benefit greatly from better acclimating to the different surfaces, according to Jaffer on news sources.
