Team India has been chosen to know if Shubman Gill heart starts bouncing: Shubman Gill has spent a lot of time under the supervision of Rahul Dravid. A year ago,
The beginning of Sunday (January 13th) was like a common day for Shubman Gill. Preparing for a practice session at the nets near his home in Mohali, it was understandable that he would share his Heroes with Dressing Room on New Zealand tour after selection in the Indian team. It was an opportunity for Shubman, the star of the Under-19 World Cup, to remember that journey which he has reached here.
Emotional Shubman said, “I was not even four years old when I started playing cricket in the village. Papa Lakhwinder Singh brought me some wooden timepieces and wickets. Later, we shifted to Mohali for my training. Last night, when I found out from the selection of some friends and journalists, Heartbeat had increased. I was excited and I gave good news to father and mother, they were asleep then. Ever since practice started, it was thought that one day the Indian cricket team has to play. A cricketer always thinks about it and this is the beginning of a new journey for me. “
A year ago,Shubman Gill was preparing for the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand. Shubman Gill scored 372 runs in six matches of this tournament. His century against Pakistan in the semifinals is memorable. In the 2017-18 season, Shubman Gill debuted the Ranji Trophy and scored 728 runs in nine innings at an average of 104. Two centuries and four fifties, but his team could not qualify for the Punjab Knock-out round. Gil also played an unofficial Test series in New Zealand.
Shubman Gill feels that the experience of playing here will be his work in the upcoming tour.
Shubman Gill said, “Last year, I was going for the Under-19 World Cup. We went 2-3 weeks before the tournament and helped me understand the situation. There is a little bounce in New Zealand’s wickets, but as a batsman you can easily show off your natural game. During the Under-19 World Cup and India A Tour, I had a focus on this. I have faced bowlers like Doug Bracewell and Lucky Ferguson who have played for New Zealand, this boosts your confidence. “
In a very short time, Shubman Gillcompleted 1,000 runs in first-class cricket. He said, “Just yesterday, I was watching India’s ODI match on TV and now I think that I will share the dressing form with players like Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni, like a dream. There will be no pressure to play, but there are expectations from you, there will be some pressure on that matter. My favorite shots are cover drives and bridges and I would like to play my natural game in New Zealand. “
Shubman Gill has spent a lot of time under the supervision of Rahul Dravid. He said, “Right now Rahul is not talking to the head of the team selection but when they come to know and talk to me, they will be happy. I have been in his under-play for more than two years. The biggest thing I have learned from them is to stay calm and maintain patience in difficult situations. “
