IND vs NZ: Shubhman Gill has a bright future .. He will be crucial in Test cricket ..

Shubman Gill

Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan on Thursday lauded opening batsman Shubhman Gill for scoring a half-century in the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur. Shubhman Gill gave India a good start with 52 off 93 balls. However, he was out in the first over of the second session after the lunch break. He has been impressive since making his debut for India in the Border-Gavaskar series against Australia last year. The stylish right-handed batsman from Punjab has averaged over 31 with four fifties in Test cricket so far.

“I really think Gill has a really good career, especially in Test cricket because I think he’s going to be very crucial, especially if we are touring abroad. He will not play the best backfoot game with his starting move, ”Pathan told Star Sports. The way Gill has faced spinners so far in his Test career is great. ” Said Pathan.

“He is a young man. He is very talented when it comes to batting. He’s trying to figure out how to play against minor technical glitches he has, especially against full delivery. He was coming forward on the pitch to face the fast bowlers and the way he faced the spinners was really impressive. He’s playing the ball late, ‘said Pathan. By the end of the first day’s play at Green Park Stadium, Gill, Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja had scored half-centuries to give India a solid lead. Iyer and Jadeja added 113 for the fifth wicket.
