Star of the previous U-19 Cricket World Cup, Shubman Gill has started to find his feet in the Indian Premier League (IPL) now as he has played a couple of handy innings at the top for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) over the last couple of weeks.
The youngster has been scoring heavily since his promotion in the batting order as he was previously playing down the order and was unable to score runs consistently. However, he feels that change in his batting position does not bother him much as he realizes the importance of adopting according to the situations.
“I can’t say I should have got chances earlier because Lynn was doing quite well. He’s been doing it for so long that we can’t change it. And Narine was giving us pretty good starts. So I can’t say I should have got chances earlier, but I’m happy that I got a chance and I capitalized on it,” he said.
Nonetheless, the batsman also expressed gratitude for the KKR management for giving him ample opportunities in the experienced side.
