The Indian cricket team scripted history under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan as it whitewashed the 3-match ODI series against West Indies and this is the first time that any Indian team has achieved so much success in the Caribbean Islands.
Shubman Gill, the young Indian cricketer who opened the innings with the stand-in skipper Shikhar Dhawan played an instrumental role in India’s series win as he scored 205 runs in 3 ODIs. In fact in the third and the last ODI, he missed his maiden century by just 2 runs as rain stopped the match and the umpires decided to wrap up the Indian innings.
Shubman Gill who won the Player of the Match as well as the Player of the Series awards made the best use of the opportunity that he got as he was out of ODI and T20I team for a long time. Now he has made the selectors’ job very tough because Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad have also been performing well while opening with Rohit Sharma in the short formats.
With his superb performances in this series, Shubman Gill has made a strong claim for his candidature in the Indian squad which will go to play in the T20 World Cup that will be played in Australia later this year.
The former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer who is known for his expertise in posting funny memes posted a meme in this regard too. He took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and shared a still from the cult comedy movie “Andaz Apna Apna” which starred Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon and Paresh Rawal in lead roles.
The still featured Aamir, Salman and Paresh and while all the three tried to sit on one vehicle, Paresh Rawal took the vehicle with him, leaving the other two behind. In the meme, Aamir is tagged as Ishan, Salman as Ruturaj and Paresh as Shubman Gill.
Here is the meme:

As of now, Shubman Gill along with Shikhar Dhawan, Sanju Samson, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shardul Thakur and Prasidh Krishna will return to India as they are not a part of India’s T20 squad.
