Former BCCI President and India captain Sourav Ganguly heaped praise on Shubman Gill and has said that the young batter has staked his claim to become a permanent player of the team. 

Gill has been a revelation in the past few months while donning the colours of the national team. The young batter has scored hundreds in all three formats of the game. 

“He has been brilliant in the last six-seven months. What else does he need to do? He’s a permanent player now,” said Ganguly. 

Axar Patel was also one of the stars for India during the Border-Gavaskar trophy and Ganguly pointed out the valuable contributions of the all-rounder with the bat and said the trio of R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar has a lot of potential. 

“Ashwin and Jadeja have been very good. You also have to speak about Axar Patel. He quietly does a good job lower down the order with the bat. Whenever he gets to bowl, he bowls well. That’s India’s strength, having Jadeja, Ashwin and Axar. I know you can’t play all three away but there is tremendous potential there,” said Ganguly.
