Honoring India’s batting legacy, the rising batting sensation Shubman Gill is continuing to make the country proud. For a stunning performance in the domestic games, the Punjab born batsman has been installed in the Indian Test squad. The men in blue are set to lock horns against South Africa for a three-game Test series starting from October 2.
Shubman sits ready and excited for the new challenge as he believes that India A exposure has allowed him to make the transition as a national level player. Even in the ongoing series against South Africa A, the 20-year old mustered a match winning 90 which helped him ameliorate his chances of selection.
Playing 14 first-class games, the skillful batsman has scored over 1400 runs, securing a mind-boggling average of 72.15. Shubman also scored 4 centuries and 8 half-centuries in 23 innings. India’s batting line-up packed with strong batters won’t allow him to just walk into the team, however, Shubman is confident of making his debut and deliver a strong show to become a permanent feature of the Test team.
