Shubman Gill has made a wonderful name for himself in the international arena in the last couple of years. In the period, the youngster has won many matches for India, particularly in the ODIs. Gill has been the best batter for India and in the format since his debut. The form of Gill is so good that many are predicting him to be the trump card for India’s campaign in the ODI World cup 2023. Yuvraj Singh also feels the same.
The former Indian cricketer said that Gill is already a star and will be the game-changer for the Indian team in the upcoming World Cup. “Next star nahi. Star toh woh already hai (He is already a star). He is right now fearless. He is in good form. He can be the game-changer. He can break the shackles,” said the former cricketer.
Yuvraj claimed that Gill can win a lot of matches for India. “When somebody is fearless and in good form, he is definitely in a good position to win games for India. That’s what I am looking for from him,” said Yuvraj about Gill. The former World Cup winner was in a promotional event, where he was asked about several questions related to cricket.
Yuvraj felt that India lacks part-timers. “Similarities….I look at some great batsmen. We had a lot of great batters. This team has few because there have been a lot of injuries. I don’t see batters who can bowl in this team. Part-time bowlers are tough to bowl now because the format has changed. Earlier, we had three left-handed batters with Ishan, Jadeja and Axar. With Axar not in the mix, we still have two lefties,” added Yuvraj.
Yuvraj felt that a lot of options is a good dilemma to have. “It depends on what combination they want to play. Iyer is in form. Surya is in form. Surya is the kind of guy who can take the game away from the opposition at No.6. It’s a good headache for the captain regarding who to play because there are so many options,” concluded Yuvraj.
