Rohit Sharma’s Heartfelt Plea, Shubman Gill’s Stunning Form to Ignite WTC Final Showdown!

Rohit Sharma's Heartfelt Plea, Shubman Gill's Stunning Form to Ignite WTC Final Showdown!

Shubman Gill has again committed tremendous mayhem at Ahmedabad’s beautiful Narendra Modi Stadium. Gill scored his third century in the 2023 season in the Qualifier 2 game against the five-time champion Mumbai Indians at the same location where he had hammered his first IPL century less than two weeks earlier. Gill’s century helped GT to achieve a massive Victory against MI in Qualifier 2 and securing their spot in the finals. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma thinks that Gill’s consistent performance is also a promising sign for the forthcoming WTC Final.

Along with solidifying his place in the competition for the Orange Cap, Gill joined Virat Kohli in an impressive IPL list with the hit. He became the second Indian batter to smash three centuries in a single season.

Rohit Sharma’s Statement About Shubman Gill Ahead of WTC Final

Following this MI Skipper Rohit Sharma praised Shubhman Gill innings and said “Gill made the difference in their loss to Gujarat Titans in IPL Qualifier 2 in Ahmedabad and hoped the opener continues his purple patch in India colours. The WTC final begins June 7 at The Oval. “Shubman batted well, wicket was good. They got 20-25 extra. We were positive after the first-half. We have to credit Shubman. I hope he continues that form.”

Rohit also praised Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green as they played good innings and made their team stand fighting in the match. Rohit said “Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green raised some hopes with their partnership, but he felt MI lost the game in the powerplay while chasing.”

“Greeny and Surya batted well but we lost our way. We wanted to give it a good crack, be positive. We couldn’t get going in the powerplay. We wanted one batter, like Gujarat did, and take the game deep where anything can happen on a good pitch and a ground with a small boundary. But credit to GT, who played well,” he added.

The MI captain also added, “Ishan Kishan’s concussion didn’t help the team either in its tall chase.” Kishan’s concussion was unexpected. It was a last-minute change. We had to adapt, to different conditions and situations. Not looking at that though,” he said. He preferred to take positives from the campaign despite failing to qualify for the final.” Playing this game, qualifying and coming this far is big, the batting has been a big positive we can take into the next season. All the bowling teams have been challenged.”
