Whose attention caught Shubman Gill?

Shubman Gill India vs England : Shubhman Gill. At present, he is being counted among the best young players in the world. He is playing all three formats for India. He is also being called the successor of Virat Kohli. But these days it seems that someone has caught his attention. Runs are not coming from his bat. Especially since he started coming at number three in Tests, his bat has become stale. The special thing is that he has not been able to score even a single Test half-century at number three.

Shubman Gill played an inning of 23 runs against England

In the first Test match being played between India and England in Hyderabad, Shubman Gill came to bat at number three after the dismissal of Rohit Sharma. When Shubman came to bat, the conditions were favorable because Yashasvi Jaiswal was batting explosively. Shubman Gill had a chance to play a big innings. He finished the first day unbeaten, but on the second day he could not save himself from getting out. He scored 23 runs on 66 balls. Only two fours were included in this. His strike rate in this innings was only 34.85.

Gill has batted at number three in so many innings so far

So far in his career, Shubman has been able to score only 189 runs while batting at number three in Tests. He came to bat at number three for the first time in the year 2021. Then Cheteshwar Pujara came to open and Shubman Gill came at third position. In this match, 47 runs came from his bat. After this he continued opening. But when the Indian team went on the West Indies tour, Cheteshwar Pujara was not selected in Team India and young batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal got the chance.

Gill himself had expressed his desire to play at number three

Yashasvi Jaiswal was a contender for the opening. The third position was vacant, so Gill himself expressed his desire to play at number three and the team management also accepted it. Gill came at number three, but runs stopped coming from his bat. Against West Indies, he scored 6 runs in the first innings and 10 runs in the second. In the second match of the same series, Shubman scored 10 and 29 not out. After this, Team India went to South Africa and there too Shubman got a chance to play at number three. He scored 2 and 26 runs in the first two innings of the first Test. After this, in the second test he could score only 36 and ten runs.

Shubman Gill does not like number three

Shubman Gill has now been out cheaply in the match being played against England. While they are playing in India. Leaving aside the year 2021, he was batting at number three for the first time in India. But they could not take advantage of it. That is, it is clear from the statistics that his highest score in the test at third position is 47 runs. That is, leave alone a century with his bat, he has not even reached a half-century. At number three, we already told you that he has only 189 runs in his name. Here his average is only 23.62. From this it can be understood that Shubman Gill is not liking the number three position. It should be expected that runs will come from his bat in this series, so that he can give a befitting reply to his critics.
