Changes in India’s ODI batting set-up being considered
Gill believes that a score of 400 or 450 cannot be scored every day.
Hamilton. The series in T20 and ODI 6 matches between Team India on New Zealand tour has been badly affected by the rain. Out of the six matches of this tour, two matches (1st T20 and 2nd ODI) had to be canceled due to rain while one match (Napier T20) was decided by Duckworth-Lewis method. Team India was disappointed after the rain washed out the second match of the ODI series, because now the Indian team will not have a chance to win the series, but now the challenge will be to equalize the series.
India’s young opener Shubman Gill, who was batting well before the match was cancelled, was also very disappointed. He believes that both players and spectators are upset due to the rain affecting the matches, so closed roof stadiums (indoor stadiums) can be a good option.
Gill, who scored 50 runs in the first ODI, was playing unbeaten after scoring 45 not out until the second ODI was canceled due to rain. He said that irritation arises when matches are affected by rain. Gill told reporters after the cancellation of the second ODI, “It is for the board to decide (to play in the indoor stadium). As a player and a fan, it is troubling to see so many matches getting affected due to rain. What can I say about this because it is a big decision. Definitely closed roof stadiums would be a good option.”

In the second ODI between India and New Zealand, the number of overs was reduced to 29 after the first rain interruption, but only 12.5 overs were played in the match. Gill said, “It is very disturbing because you do not know how many overs will be played. In such a situation, you cannot make a strategy accordingly.
Can’t score 400 or 450 everyday in ODIs: Gill
Changes are being considered in India’s ODI batting structure, but this young player from Punjab believes that a score of 400 or 450 runs cannot be made every day. Gill said, “A score of 400 to 450 runs can be made only in one or two matches in a year. Most of the teams aim to score around 300 runs. Apart from this, it also depends on the circumstances whether you are batting first or chasing the target. But a score of more than 400 cannot be made in every match.
‘I want to play long innings for the team’
Gill is a strong contender for a place in the 15-man squad for next year’s World Cup but he said he is not thinking about that right now. He said, “I am not thinking that far ahead and want to take full advantage of whatever opportunities are coming my way. I want to play big innings for the team.
