India’s young batting prodigy Shubman Gill is surely one of the biggest names going around in the Indian domestic circuit. After a breakthrough performance in the Under-19 World Cup, Shubman went on to compose a sensational tally of 1,535 runs in 15 first-class games at an impressive average of 69.8 that includes four hundreds and nine fifties. He was rewarded with his maiden call-up to the Test team for the recent home series against South Africa.
Shubman couldn’t get a place in the playing XI but got a great experience in the Indian dressing room with the senior players. The right-hander made his ODI debut in the limited-overs series against New Zealand but failed to contribute with much of runs. However, he is currently very much happy with his career and is looking ahead at doing well in the upcoming opportunities.
“I think my career is going at the right pace. In all the tournaments, I have been trying to step up my game and trying to work hard and get those runs. I’ve said this earlier. I can’t really expect a fairytale start everywhere I go. I was really disappointed when I didn’t get the runs. I was obviously hoping that I would get the runs and that’d be a really good start for my career. But I’m looking for the next opportunity,” quoted Shreyas Iyer.
“It was a really good experience for me. Learning from the best team in the world. The form the Indian team is playing with right now… We haven’t lost even a single match. Even in West Indies, and here in India against South Africa. So, it was a really good learning curve for me,” he added.
