Shubman Gill’s inclusion in the T20I squad will mark his shortest format debut. In the absence of the regular skipper Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya would lead the side in the T20Is while Shikhar Dhawan would captain in the ODIs.

Hardik Pandya-led Indian T20I team will lock horns with Kane Williamson-led New Zealand to play 3 T20Is with the first match on November 18 at Sky Stadium, Wellington.

“He has been in class form over the last 5-6 months. He played a crucial role in Gujarat Titans’ IPL triumph. He has scored a lot of runs, and averages between 50-60 in first-class cricket. During this tour, all the eyes will be on Shubman Gill.

He only played in ODIs earlier but the selectors did the right thing to call him to the T20I side,” Kaif said during a discussion on sports media.

Gill has played 12 ODI matches and scored 579 runs, ever-since his debut in 2019. He smashed his maiden international century against Zimbabwe during a three-match ODI series in August. In Test, the right-handed batter has played 11 matches and scored 579 runs.

Apart from this, Gill made his debut in the County Cricket from Glamorgan, where he struck maiden ton against the Sussex.

India and New Zealand have played 20 T20Is so far where India won 11 matches while New Zealand won 09 matches.
