Shubman Gill, who scored 372 runs and helped India lift the Under-19 World Cup in 2018, is ready for the big stage, according to Sourav Ganguly. The former India skipper believes that uncapped batsman Shubman Gill deserves a chance and should play the rest of the matches in New Zealand.
“I think they should play Shubman Gill,” Ganguly told India.TV in a post-match chat show. “He certainly deserves a chance in the team. He should play the rest of the series. Who knows, India might get another good player for the World Cup.”
Shubman Gill, during his first season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2018, scored 203 runs for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
“Virat Kohli has also said that he didn’t bat like Gill when he was his age, which is a great thing to say for a captain,” Ganguly added.
Having won the first three One-day Internationals (ODIs) of the ongoing five-match series against New Zealand, India have gained an unassailable 3-0 lead.
The fourth ODI will be played at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Thursday.
