Gujarat Titans’ batter, Shubman Gill has been in super prolific form in this year’s IPL. He has already hit three tons in his last four games.
Also, he is breaking records in the tournament as well and has been a hot topic throughout the country as well.
Therefore, in today’s final against Chennai Super Kings, Gill can break one more record. If he gets 123 runs or more in the game, then he will shatter Virat Kohli’s record of 973 runs in a single edition of the IPL.
On the other hand, Gill has also become the orange cap holder this season after he surpassed RCB’s Faf du Plessis.
Apparently, Gill has managed to score 851 runs in 16 games this season and therefore the team management will depend heavily on him to deliver the goods.
Moreover, former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has also been full of praise for Gill and has stated that he is a player for the next generation.
This is when you see a player and think there is something special to offer in the future. You look at all those years that he has played in the IPL, and how quickly he has risen to the pinnacle of T20 batting, that is something few batters manage to achieve. A three-format player, he is going to be opening for India in the World Test Championship final. India gets one player every generation that stood out; maybe Shubman Gill is the guy for the next generation.
Gill gets praise from Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Rishabh Pant on social media
Meanwhile, his knock of 129 runs from 60 balls has earned Gill praise from all former and current cricketers.
Rohit Sharma congratulated Gill during the second qualifier at Ahmedabad while Kohli and Pant took to their social media accounts to pour their well-wishes on him.
Therefore, today’s game will be an exciting one for fans of Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans.
