After getting the maiden call Shubhman said in an interview with TOI, I’m ready to bat wherever the team wants me to. As per the reports of TOI, the young Shubhman Gill used to dig up Kohli, Rohit Sharma’s and Pujara’s record so that he could motivate himself to break those records.
As per cricview, When Gill was asked about does the maiden call bring any changes, he said, your game doesn’t change in any of the formats, only your mental ability and situation changes.
Shubhman had an average of 129 throughout the mega cricketing event. The 20-year-old cricketer recently was the captain of India A side who won against South Africa A with a seven wicket victory.
Gill has an impressive average of 72.15 in first class cricket by now he has proved to be pliable as an opener or no 3 batsman during the last season of IPL. Well, that isn’t easy.

Finally #ShubmanGill gets a much deserved call. Hope they play him through out the series. Although, going into a series with just 3 seamers is going to be tricky for #Kohli #INDvSA #Testsquad Why no Pandya?
