Shubman Gill has been one of the players of team India who beats New Zealand by 1-0 under Virat Kohli. Notably, Gill scored 44 and 47 runs in both the innings of the 2nd Test.

Meanwhile, former India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has praised Gill and said, “When it comes to technique, different surfaces will test you differently.

I think Shubman has an advantage as he played a very crucial inning (91) in Brisbane where we won the Test match. He has had the experience of playing on hard and bouncy tracks and I felt that he looked pretty comfortable. So, I don’t think there is any technical issue as such.”

Talking to PTI, Tendulkar noted that Gill must learn to convert his starts to big scores. “Shubman has started well and shown a lot of promise. The way he builds his innings, he has been good so far. Just that he needs to go further and convert those 40s into big scores.

Once you get into that squad, it is about how hungry you are for bigger scores which I am sure he is. He needs to just convert those starts and not lose concentration. Both in Kanpur and Mumbai, he got good deliveries. He is on a learning curve and will definitely take lessons,” Tendulkar remarked.

“Sachin Sachin” Chat at Wankhede 

During the 2nd Test of India vs New Zealand, while Gill was at the crease, the Mumbai crowd started chanting ‘Sachin Sachin.’ It is known for all that Sachin Tendulkar has an unreal fan following in the world of cricket and it gets manifold when the action comes to his home ground, Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

However, this particular incident is being attributed to the reports that Gill and Tendulkar’s daughter Sara are dating each other. Though no official confirmation has come from any one of them on any occasion, their social media activities drop a little hint to their dating rumors.
