Rohan Gavaskar Speaks Highly of Young India Batter. Former India batter Rohan Gavaskar also weighed in on Shubman Gill, describing him as a “all-format player.”
Shubman Gill, a young Indian batter, has recently been in excellent form. Gill has consistently put his best foot forward in all formats, from his maiden international ton against Zimbabwe to his maiden County Cricket century for Glamorgan. Shubman has been heralded as the next big thing in Indian cricket since his debut in 2019. Gill, who is currently playing for Glamorgan in the County Championship, made headlines after hitting a century against Sussex. Many experts and fans congratulated the right-handed batter on his outstanding performance.
Similarly, former India batter Rohan Gavaskar weighed in on Shubman Gill, calling him a “all-format player.”
“It was Amol Mazumdar who first mentioned Shubman Gill to me before he had even broken through because Amol has seen him at the NCA, he was going and coaching at the NCA and he came to me and said ‘Rohan, I’ve seen an absolute superstar! He’s someone who is definitely going to play for India, I have no doubt,” Rohan Gavaskar told Sports18.
“He’s demonstrating that. He is more than capable of holding his own in white ball cricket. His numbers in red ball cricket are just astounding. Again, he is someone who needs to be nurtured, which means he needs to be given the right opportunities because he has demonstrated that he has the ability and there is no doubt about that,” he added.
Gill has played 11 Tests and scored 579 runs, including four half-centuries. He appeared in 9 One-Day Internationals and scored 499 runs, including one century and three half-centuries.
He has scored 1900 runs in 74 IPL matches.
