Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli in test

Shubman Gill Test Record: In the new year, Team India will now take the field to play the second and last Test against South Africa in Cape Town on January 3. The figures of Cape Town are scary. That is because the Indian team has played 6 Tests on this ground so far and has not achieved even a single victory. In four it has faced crushing defeats and two have ended in a draw. That means the challenge is going to be very big and tough. Meanwhile, the big and young players remain the cause of tension for the Indian team. Who has scored only one century in Test cricket last year i.e. in 2023.

Runs are not coming from Shubman Gill’s bat.

We are talking about Shubhman Gill. Shubman Gill is an opening batsman. He also made his Test debut as an opener in the year 2020. But last year, when Team India went on the West Indies tour, Cheteshwar Pujara was shown the way out, while Yashasvi Jaiswal entered. Shubman Gill himself talked about batting at number three and it was also accepted. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who came in as an opening batsman, got a hit in his very first match, but Shubman Gill is not scoring runs with his bat. Ever since he came to bat at number three, he has proved to be a failure in a way.

Shubman Gill’s bat did not even play on the West Indies tour before South Africa

Shubman Gill scored two runs in the first innings of the first Test against South Africa and 26 runs in the second. But before that a look at the West Indies series should also be taken. When he came out to play at number three for the first time against the West Indies, he scored six runs in the first innings. After this, in the first innings of the second match, he scored ten runs and 29 not out. Shubman Gill last scored a century in Test against Australia on March 9, 2023 in Ahmedabad. In the year 2023, he played a total of six Tests and only one century came from his bat. After this, he was not able to score even a half century leave alone a century. Anyway, when it comes to Ahmedabad, his bat is seen in a different color. Be it IPL or international cricket. But not every match takes place in Ahmedabad.

Shubman Gill’s figures in test cricket have been like this

Talking about Shubman Gill’s Test statistics, he has scored 994 runs while batting in 25 innings of 19 Tests. His average is 31.06, while his strike rate is 58.92. He has two centuries and four half-centuries to his name. Shubhman Gill is considered to be such a batsman of the young generation, who can play all three formats for Team India in the future. He is still included in the list of selected players playing all three formats. But in Test cricket, his bat is not performing as expected. If Team India has to win the Cape Town Test against South Africa and level the series, then apart from Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill will also have to score big runs with his bat.
