This innings will be remembered for years: Former players hail Shubman Gill

“This Gill inning will be cherished for years. By concentrating on MI’s key bowlers throughout this innings, Gill forced opposition skipper Rohit Sharma to alter his approach, Gavaskar stated on Star Sports.

“Gill kept his strike rate continuously high during these unmatchable (matchless) innings and kept his team out of danger. Along with this, Gill’s ability to play cricketing shots in the T20 format will also be remembered for this innings. Harbhajan Singh, a former India spinner, praised Gill for having such clarity of thought at such a young age.

“Shubman Gill’s batting demonstrates one thing: If your fundamentals are sound and your thinking is clear, runs will come easily off your bat. Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill’s batting have shown that you can score runs without hitting oblique shots.

The fact that these two bats have produced many runs despite representing different eras has been made possible by clear thought and adherence to the fundamentals of cricket. Irfan Pathan, a former India pacer, praised Gill for the way he singled out the MI bowlers.

“Years later when you’ll look back, you will remember this knock. If you look at the history of TATA IPL qualifier matches, you will hold this knock from Gill in high regard.

“It was quite different from what we had seen in the TATA IPL knockout stages. It’s admirable how Gill prepared this innings and how he singled out MI’s key bowlers. Suresh Raina, a former Indian batter, too praised the new opener highly.

“We noticed the tranquilly. Body language is crucial in a game this vital. the pick-up shots, or sixes, he made later in the game. He made a shot off Kartikeya, and as a result, he understood that he could enter the queue and just make pick-up shots, according to Raina, a member of JioCinema’s Expert panel.

“I loved his body language, self-assurance, and self-belief, and he has a habit of participating in important matches,” the author said. Just take a look at Virat Kohli, like we did with Jos Buttler the previous year. However, based on his performance today, he will perform just as well as Virat, Rohit, and MS Dhoni have in big games. Additionally, Gill received admiration from the cricket community, which was expressed on social media platforms.

“His ability to identify moments and accelerate, with consistency, puts him in a class of his own. Also keep in mind, most of his games have been at Ahmedabad, one of the bigger grounds around. Well played Shubman,” wrote South Africa’s AB de Villiers on his twitter handle.
