Former Indian player Aakash Chopra points out the flaws in Shubman Gill’s batting. The 23-year-old cricketer has recently been struggling with his batting form, having scored only one half-century in eight matches against West Indies.
Aakash Chopra Points Out Shubman’s Batting Flaws
Shubman Gill had scored a total of 45 runs in two test matches against West Indies. The batter had scored 126 runs in the three-match ODI series on the ongoing WI tour 2023, where Shubman Gill scored 85 runs in the 3rd ODI.
In the T20I series, Shubman Gill is yet to play some noticeable innings. He has scored a total of 16 runs across three T20Is on five match T20Is against West Indies.
Shubman Gill was the highest run-scorer in IPL 2023. He has won the Orange cap in IPL 2023 after scoring 890 runs in 17 matches of the season.
He had smashed three centuries in the last five games of the season and also becomes the third batter to cross 800 runs in a single IPL season. He also scored 31 runs across two innings in the WTC championship finals before the West Indies tour in 2023.
“At this point in time, the problem is with Shubman Gill’s form. During the IPL, I read in many places that he is no longer the prince but the king.
But after that, there was the WTC final, he didn’t score too many runs there, played two Test matches against the West Indies, didn’t score runs there,” said Chopra on his YouTube channel. Chopra believes that Gill faces difficulty on pitches that are slightly slow.
“Then he played three ODIs, where he scored one half-century and a score of 34. He has single-digit scores in all three T20Is. It seems like he hasn’t scored runs at all on this West Indies tour.
I feel there is one thing with him for sure – when the pitches are slightly slow, he will find it difficult to get into a rhythm,” said the former India batter.
Shubman Gill achieved a milestone during the second ODI international against the West Indies where he broke Babar Azam’s record after he surpassed the Pakistan batter with the most numbers of runs after 26 innings in ODIs.
Shubman Gill had a great start to his international career in all three formats. In his short career, he has centuries in all formats and become an impressive player of the team.
He opened the innings for India against West Indies in the 2nd ODI at Kennington Oval Bridgetown, where he completed 2500 runs in international cricket.
