Recently, Shubman Gill is having a good time in international cricket. As last year he got runs with the bat, this year his score has increased. Although he has performed in ODI and Test cricket so far, Gill will also make his T20 debut in 2023. And that’s when he showed his charismatic play in the short format of cricket. Gill also became the best cricketer of the month for January. The charismatic batting of this new sensation of Indian cricket is not over yet.
Although he could not show his performance in the debut series in T20, however, he became explosive against New Zealand. The young batsman created a stir by playing superhuman innings of 126 runs against the Kiwis. Which is the highest among Indian batsmen in T20 Internationals. Thanks to his performance, India easily won the series against the Kiwis.
Gill also had an eye-catching performance in the ODI series in January. He scored the first double-century of his career against the Kiwis. And on the occasion of this double century, he also created a record. Gill’s innings of 208 runs made him the world’s youngest player to score a double century in ODI cricket. He scored a century in the third ODI as well on the wait to become the man of the match in the ODI series.
Due to all his performances, Gill got an early chance for the ICC ‘Player of the Month’. Mohammad Siraj(Indian) and New Zealander Conway competed with him to become the player of the Month. But in the end, they failed to with against Gill. Gill won the ICC Player of the Month Award. He received this award for the first time.
Meanwhile, India will play the World Cup at home at the end of the year. Gill’s form before this tournament is surely good news for India. Meanwhile, Lokesh Rahul is not in a good rhythm with the bat. In that case, if he can maintain the consistency of runs, Gill will be seen opening the World Cup with Rohit Sharma. Although there is no doubt about it for now, he will have to be fit till the World Cup.
