Former India legend Gautam Gambhir talks about Indian opener batter Shubham Gill’s game. The batter didn’t have a good outing in the game against Pakistan. Gill scored only 10 runs in 32 deliveries and never looked comfortable during his stay.
Analysing Gill’s knock, former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir stated that. The 23-year-old needs to fix his technical flaw before making a mark on the international scene. He has been outstanding for team India in white-ball cricket in the past year. But only recently, his form has dipped in the limited-overs. Gambhir added that he understands that Gill had to slow down against Pakistan due to the match situation. But reminded him that he cannot leave such a big gap between bat and pad in the coming times.
Gambhir said on Gill’s knock,
“It is a technical flaw but I believe he tried to play differently from his natural game because a lot of wickets had fallen from the other end. Rohit Sharma lost his wicket, then Virat Kohli lost his wicket and after that, Shreyas Iyer also got out,”
“So he was trying to build a partnership. It was a good ball as well but if you play while leaving such a big gap between bat and pad, a quality bowler will expose you. It’s extremely necessary for Shubman Gill to work on this,”
Irfan Pathan also adds on to Gautam Gambhir ‘s comment
Former cricketer Irfan Pathan also expressed his disappointment with Shubman Gill’s dismissal. He suggested that the cricketer either has to commit with his feet or through head position but Gill failed to do either of those as Rauf rattled his stumps.
Adding on to Gautam Gambhir comments, Irfan Pathan said,
“You have to either commit with your feet or through your head position. We didn’t see either of those things even when he was playing well and leaving deliveries. So that is a small thing that he can work on,“
