IND Vs NZ 1st T20I Shubhman Gill to continue opening for the Blues

23-year-old Shubhman Gill is experiencing terrific form and phase especially in white ball cricket and the management on the backdrop of his multiple centuries in the ODIs have given the green signal for him to go on. The Punjab born batter was always predicted to become a huge influence and his performances has been near perfect.

At least for India’s struggle to find a suitable opener who can accelerate and attack right from the start. With Rohit Sharma, Gill is a reliable option as he play the new ball really well and is capable of running the game according to the situation.

His maturity and analysis of the game was approved by his opening pair Rohit Sharma during a press conference. And after scoring a double century and a full century against the Blackcaps during the 3-ODI series, the 23-year-old will be opening in T20Is alongside Ishan Kishan.

Captain Hardik Pandya confirmed in a conference ahead of the 1st T20 at the JSCA International Stadium, Jharkhand. Pandya clarified the air regarding Prithvi Shaw’s selection and indicated that the Mumbai batter will have to wait for his chance given the fact that Shubhman Gill is in a form of his life.

No just is it helping Gill become a permanent starter but India will benefit from his experience during the ICC Cricket World cup 2023 at home later this year. If he continues to bat in the same way, most of the batting woes will be put to rest and with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli also finding their form and 100s back, India could be on a ride.
