India batsman Shubman Gill said that he is looking forward to the much-anticipated series against Australia but has not set ‘any personal goals’ for the tour. Gill has so far played just two ODIs for India and is part of the ODI squad as well as the Test squad for the Australia tour.
Gill revealed that he has been watching the matches between India and Australia since his childhood and wants to make the most of the opportunities he will get in what is his maiden trip Down Under.
“I am really looking forward to Australia because this is my first trip. As a kid growing up, I always watched the matches between India and Australia. I am really excited,” Shubman Gill said in a video posted by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Twitter on Monday.
Gill is heading to India tour of Australia after a relatively good Indian Premier League (IPL) season with KKR. Gill amassed 440 runs in 14 matches in the recently concluded IPL season in the UAE.
“The fact that a lot of my friends are traveling with the team, so it will be fun and exciting. I have not really set any personal goals, but I am really looking forward to the tour,” he added.
Australia and India will play a series of 3 ODIs, 3 T20 internationals and four Tests. The two teams are currently quarantining in Sydney, the venue of the 1st match of the ODI series on November 27. The first Test between India and Australia will commence from December 17 at the Adelaide Oval and this match will be a day-night contest.
